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 KnittyChick.com 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!
