New Stash

Things are crazy here! I am on the planning committee for a celebration for my boys' high school. It the 50th Anniverday Party that will be held 2 weeks from today. You may not see me around much, so here is some yarn to tide you over! First up is Merino George Emerson from Sockpixie. She does not put lables are her yarn -- that bugs me -- I think I'll make my own...... Then I bought from Mud Creek's stash some Gypsy Knits I have had on my wish list at the Loopy Ewe. Friends must help friend destash you know! Colorway is Mountain Rain.
My August shipment form Three Irish Girls Sock Yarnista Club "Artic Circle"
And then the same colorway in thier Bulky weight from the Stash Menagerie Club. What I love of the Three Irish Girls Clubs , is that you have 2 colorways to chose from so you get what you want. Next month will be my last shipments as I did decide to The Magnolia Society again. Can't swing both clubs...........
We also got these great stitchmarkers!
I did finish the socks in my last post -- no photo yet but the sceond looks just like the first one.

I'm See'n Green

Here is ONE Baby Backward Rib sock. ONE -- Didn't get much knitting time this week Here's the stitch close-up -- Mista Alpaca Sock Yarn
My final shipment for the Magnolia Society -- MadelineTosh Yarn. This is her Sock yarn in colorway Verdent
And then her worsted (only available for Magnolias) is Celdon Pottery I just got my renewal and I am hesitating. You get 2 sock yarns and then 2 lace when I don't use. Its absoluting stunning, but have no use. Thinkin' cuz its on the pricey side.

Miscellaneous FO's

Here's some miscellaneous finished objects. First the August Dishcloth KAL project called Redbud Leaf. This is S&C Pumpkin colorway -Fall will be here before we know it.
Then I made this Ribs and Ruffles Scarf for a friend for her birthday. Love this Misti Alpaca Chunky and it made a perfect one-skein project.
I took a class from my friend Kathy and it was this Spa Set. This is done in Unique Sheep Pima Cotton -- you may remember from my sheep cloth from the Seven Deadly S(p)ins.
I love this Soap Sachet. No patterns to share as they belong to Kathy.

Law and Order Rerun Socks

Well I made a big mistake with these, and so it took a while. I finshed the first sock, and then went to work on other things and then started working on the second. The first I did 2x2 ribbing and it wasn't until I went to bind off the second, did I realized I did it all in stockette. Yikes -- really how hard could it have been? Wednesday I frogged the leg back (thank goodness I knit toe-up) and finshed late Thursday night, just in time for the Sock-of-the Month deadline!

There was also a delay because I sat on the needles getting my *bling* pedicure and then had to reorder (and a spare) from Knitpicks.
This was supposed to be my mindless sock project -- ahh those knitting gods have a sense of humor -- The Yarn is Knitterly Things -- Vesper Wee Skeins Kit #1
