Finishing Friday

I actually finished Thermis a while ago, but I didn't have any buttons. I went to visit my Mom (had knee surgery Tuesday) and she took me to a funky store that sold old buttons.

Look what I found! They are perfect with Thermis and only 40 cents!

I really think they finish the project nicely.

The Sixth Deadly Sin- Envy

I love this sin. The yarn is lovely and the pattern is frilly and romantic (unlike me) but I love it. I will even learn how to bead some of the stitches.
It is House Blend by The Unique Sheep, but the colorway won't be available outside the club for 6 months.
I could not wait to cast on!

Finished Friday

Well, this was not one of those forever-on-the-needles projects, but it is finished regardless. I have had the yarn for a few monhts as part of Stash Menagerie at Three Iirish Girls. I bought the pattern and I had it is a project bag for over 3 months. I am making a terrible attempt here to take my own photo.

Pooh is a much better model.

Fiber Goodness

We are 2 weeks into the New Year and I hope all is well on your end.

I have been knitting and have some FOs, but I am waiting until they are all done to post. In the meantime, enjoy some fiber. I love this yarn! It's called "Feed Me Seymour." This has already jumped on some needles.

This was part of my last Cinema Club shipment for December for sKNITches. The movie featured was "Little Shop of Horrors". Love the flytrap kit, and the choppin' teeth. These are put together so thoughtfully. Maybe someday I can rejoin. I am trying to prove to my husband we don't need my income so I can retire (ROTFL!

I love Knitterly Things Vesper yarn, but it can be really hard to get your hands on. I scored "The Holly and the Ivy" after Christmas, but I will have it for this year's. This yarn stripes up great so you don't need a stitch pattern -- the yarn does all the work!

Ah! Madtosh - what can I say. This was the December shipment ( I had to sign up for another go-round --they are too lovely to resisit). This is Faubourg in worsted and it plans on being a cowl.
This is Sock in Norway Spruce. Both colorways are from her "Intense" collection. She changed some this for this upcoming subscriptions that suit me better: No lace, which is great as I am not a lace knitter, and 2 skiens of worsted so we can make a larger project. I should be getting the January shipment soon so you can see.
Joined a new group on Raverly called "Finish or Frog Fridays". Details here.
