Webs Is a Dangerous Place ...



.... anyway, it is for the yarn budget. I joined the Mystery Stole 3 Yahoo Group. I did it last year too, but I have to confess, ... I never finished it. I loved it! It looked great! But once I finished the first half, I never got around to knitting the mirror image side. I have high hopes for completion this go around. Anyway, getting back to Webs. I was looking for some lace wt. yarn to make this stole. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on it given my history. Webs had cones of Alpaca/Silk at a very reasonable price so I got some. It is much darker than I thought it was going to be, but still pretty. I little fuzzier too, but that is OK. I am going to make mine sans beads. Now I can swatch, and I will be ready for the first clue on Friday. And, while I was browsing a few other things found their way into my shopping cart. A new to me sock yarn, Shibui, in the Marine color. It is ever so soft and yummy. Pretty blues and greens. And another hank of Soxie by the Great Adirondack Yarn Company in the Kenya color.

I am almost finished with the Moody Blues socks in the Cherry Tree Hill Sockittome. I am close to the toe decreases on the second one. I really am enjoying knitting with this yarn. It feels so nice going through your hands. And, I have one of the Lorna's Laces done in the Georgetown colorway .... that makes a pair .... right? Blogger doesn't want to let me load anymore pictures, so I guess that is it for today. I better make some dinner for my family. Happy Knitting everyone.

Wouldn't it be fun to actually go to webs someday? (you would have to quite a bit of money saved up first) You got quite the haul...every yarn is so pretty. I really love those socks!

happy knitting :)

The sock is gorgeous and I'm excited about starting MS3 also. It'll be my first time, so I really really hope to knit it to the end and wear it by Christmas or New Years maybe. I'm doing mine in Ebony.

BTW, I always get myself into trouble shopping on line. But it doesn't get any better when I'm in a store ;-)

Internet yarn shopping is SO dangerous.

Hey, I saw that you joined the DishRagTag too. And I forgot to let you know that I'm back online again. :-)
