I hate to say how long I have been working on these socks. It has been so long I can't remember the date I started them, but it has been at least 2 months ago... anyway, they are finally finished. They are a simple 2 x 2 rib knit in Cascade Fixation on size #3 needles. Now I just need to finish the other gazillion socks I have started.

I went to BoPeeps Fiber Shop yesterday and came home with some yarn. Some lovely Elsebeth Lavold Angora in the Aubergine color. I have not knit with this before, but it is so soft and lovely, I just had to have it. I bought a few patterns also. A few SandnesGarn booklets, I don't have a baby and won't be having anymore babies, so I don't know why I keep buying baby patterns. There are always friends at work having them though, so I will have nice baby shower gifts for them. I also got a pattern for a felted Entrelac bag.

I also bought some more Cascade 220. Some from BoPeeps and some from Cottage Knits. This is going to become the Salsa Purse from I really love the bright colors in this bag, and can't wait to make it. I am off to Cottage knits for another hank of the green because I just realized I need 2 of those since I am going to be holding it doubled

I hope everyone has a great day!

Good for you Sis! Getting those socks done. How's the little dress coming? That yarn is beautiful (I wouldn't mind a scarf out of that at all). Those colors are very festive for the bag you have planned, it will be cute.
See you tomorrow!! Can't wait!!!!
