This weekend, I drove up to Greenwood, Pam, was opened for a few hours and I got this: Cascade Sierra, in pink and peach to make DD2 a tank that fits a little better than the toddler tank she has laid claim to. Louet Gems Opal in off White and Sage and Artyarms UltraMerino 4 in color 121. I am working on that solid yarn deficit I have. So see, I really "Needed" to do some stash enhancing, anyway, that is my story and I am sticking to it.
And there will be even more coming, because I was the lucky winner of a blog contest last week and won some Regia sock yarn, stitch markers, Canadian tattoos, which I am sure my kids will love, and maple syrup suckers. Go on over and take a look at Heddy's blog, it is fun.
Because I am severely afflicted with the SSS, I did not finish a pair, instead I cast on for another sock in the CTH Potluck Brights. Karen gifted to me a little while back, and it has been screaming to get out of the sock yarn bin. I do love Cherry Tree Hill yarn. Very springy, it feels a lot like Koigu, I think so anyway. And boy did this stuff pool. I cast on 3 different times and it was always the same, so I knit on after the third attempt. It is a good thing I don't mind the pooling. I know it drives some people nuts, but not me.
As I was talking with Karen on the phone last night, I came to the realization that July is close to half over, so I need to concentrate on the afghan for the in-laws. I need to make myself knit on that every evening (wish me luck) as I need to have it done by the first week of August. I hope my family doesn't mind living in the deep freeze while I am working on that. It is growing and is very Hot working on it, with it on my lap. They will have to put on some woollies when I knit that, but it must get done.
Well, I am off to knit a sock or something, until it is time to pick DD2 up from her daily Parks and Rec fun. I love that program, and even better, so does she!
