|I seriously have to start keeping better care the blog The problem is that I am getting to wrapped up in reading that I am not knitting and I know you guys like seeing knitting more than personal posts. -=giggle=-
So to start off, YARN!!
This stuff is too lickable and Pounce gave it to me! She had originally bought it to try knitting me a hat and scarf but for some reason she decided against it and gave me the yarn. I would love and adore her for the hat and scarf set but I love her and adore her even more because the 2 black skeins of this are making me a sweater! Not to mention she made me a nifty Dice Bag! Also, Mucho Mucho Thanks to Moontear for the wonderful early X-mas gift. You are too sweet! I also got this yarn for the Tree Jacket Pattern (SKC KAL).
This yarn for the baby blanket.
Cthulhu loves the sheepies and the yarn. He's not evil, I promise. Then the baby also gets a baby wrap in this. Isn't it.. um.. bright? -=giggle=-
My mom bought me this..
The book, not an elder god. -=giggle=- She also got me the Beautiful Knitting Patterns Book. Have I mentioned how much I love books like this? It's awesome how they give you the idea of how to do it and you can go from there. =)
I've already swatched for my Tree Jacket and I plan to Cast on that or the baby blanket tomorrow. Probably the blanket because that's what I should be knitting. Or I'll mix over the weekend. A little of this and a little of that. -=giggle=-
I also wanted to post a picture for a contest on Melissa's blog. The Fake Rhinebeck Picture Contest.
I got some Malabrigo in Mint Green.
Some great sock yarn that I can't remember the name of right now!
Some Sweet Sheep - Head Vampyre
And some Misty Meadows by Knitpicks
The little sheepy and Cthulhu also hopped into my basket. =P
Have I mentioned how I had intended to go to Rhinebeck? Did I mention that I had to use the money saved to buy new brakes and rotors? Did I mention how bitter I am about that? I didn't think so. Oh well.. Next year. Next year.
Alright guys, that's it for the yarn. I'll post a couple of interesting points of my week tomorrow. Grim's B-day is this weekend so it's unlikely I will be on much. So to keep you in suspense, the next blog will include:
A. What the doctor said about my tummy.
B. What the Vet said about Kiya's tummy.
C. What happened at the Country Wool Yarn Store.
D. What happened at the Double Date last Friday
Okay, night night all!

oooo look at all that beautiful yarn!! Jealous! I'm broke and can't step foot into a yarn shop for a while *cry* Dieting of any kind is cruel and unusual punishement in my book! *giggle*
All that yarn...nice stash for not going to Rhinebeck. :)
I'm glad you were amused by the photos!
next year i'm sure you'll make it to rhinebeck - but you seem to be fully stashed these days, judging by all these pics...
From the look of your stash - you can wait til next year for Rhinebeck... lol Your yarn stash is looking very pretty. Great colors for the baby projects and looking forward to your FOs.
!!! I know your pain.
I wish I got Elder Gods as gifts.
