Yes, I did spend the credit at Eat.Sleep.Knit today. 🙂 Plus, one hank of yarn would take me to the next level of their Yarnathon (a surprise goodie with my order). But of course I bought more than one or two or three. Then those purchases put me only 420 yards away from the next $20 gift card. I don’t know if the Yarnathon continues after the end of this year so why be so close and not earn that credit on my account. So ordered two additional sock yarns and have earned the $20 credit which will just have to sit on my account till the Black Friday sale next year. I think I have enough yarn now. LOL
I want to do some two color work on some new socks and as most of my sock yarns are multicolored, this time I got several pretty ones that read as a solid. So they will work well with that.
Last weekend after I finished the christmas gift socks, I pulled a pair in progress out of the yarn basket. They were the ones where I was knitting on both at the same time to make sure I didn’t run out of yarn — I didn’t. Finished them off last night and wore them today. Here they are.
I picked up another pair from the “in progress” basket – one with yarn that self stripes and worked on those a bit but I’m hankering to get some of that new yarn and start on a new pair. I need to go through some patterns tho and find a new one to try.
In the meantime, I’ve got a pattern I have to get written up this weekend for Hoffman so the December Year of Wallhangings pattern will be late since I have to get this latest pattern to them by Monday. I post a note when I get the December pattern done and it’s available for download.
Tomorrow I’m off for breakfast with a friend and some shopping. I hope to finally find the right chair to replace my sewing room one that broke.
