I didn't get much knitting done over vacation, but I did receive these scrumptious items in the mail. I'll be using Yarn Chef's Buttercream yarn in Merlot for a shawl for my mom. Lotus Yarns Nirvana in Hopeless Romantic will become socks and matching armwarmers for "lollipop" and Yarn Chef's Bouillabaisse in Circus Tent will be socks for me.

Hey all! I'm on vacation. Can you picture it? Sandy beaches, crystal blue water, a cocktail in one hand and a good book in another. Yeah, me either!
Instead I'm at home cleaning and organizing one of the last rooms affected by our April Fools Flood. It kind of sucks that I have to use vacation to "clean house", but it is something that must be done. The holidays are coming, and I love entertaining for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, ( mostly Halloween though)! I have found some old WIP's during this process and I'm trying do decide if I want to finish 'em or frog 'em. See ya in a couple of days!

Quick Fix

This past week has been hectic! Work, soccer kick-off week, and numerous trips to the chiropractor found me wanting to work on a project that:
A. is mindless
B. is fast
C. uses yarn I already have
Where would I go to find such a thing you ask?
I searched their miscellaneous section until something caught my eye, and there it was:
Wellenreiter by Iris Wilde
of Strickmasche
Size 10 needles, 2 random balls of Noro Kureyon from my stash (one was rewound, it was a hat that was too small, and the other ball is leftover from a felted purse), and time. Lord knows I've had time this weekend. I can't really do much else but sit and knit or lay and knit with my icepacks. I started yesterday morning and it's almost done. It goes so fast and like a child I'm amazed at how beautifully each color blends in as I knit along.

Knitting these socks makes me happy!

I'm already planning an outfit for work and I haven't even finished the first one.Why? Because when I work on them in the office everyone has to comment. What are you making? What is that? Why are those sticks so small? Oh, very interesting! Are those for your daughter? Nope! They are for me, Melanie nailed it with this color. A perfect blend of colorful, bold, and girlie.
