A busy week

I managed to give the Namaste bag away in appreciation for donations to The American Cancer Society. The squares for the most fabulous blanket are trickling in, long before they need to be here. Just seeing the brilliant design and stitch work is inspiring and the blanket is going to be fabulous.

My destash has progressed and I was feeling pretty good about the results before the rooting around began. Realization: there is still too much yarn and I am still in love with all of it - what's a girl to do?

The chiropractor came to my rescue for a very tight muscle in my shoulder. It is still a bit sore, but is much better.

The Easter Bunny popped by courtesy of my mom...who loves Easter too

Unlike myself, there were 3 knit projects cast on this week - Fetching (everyone except me has made these, right?), a rose trellis scarf, and a cable lace redux. All are relatively quick knits and having 3 WIPs is not a concern. Just trying to bide my time until the blanket parts are all in and the assembly begins.

A most exciting package arrived from Ivy. I 'met' her on Ravelry and have enjoyed chatting about that Lady B bag in Dutch Treat (which I've now decided to part with). Anyway, Ivy sent this most beautiful yarn which I've never seen. Mirasol yarns has quite the palette! This is their Hacho which will become some yummy socks and a surprise - 82 yards of the most incredible baby llama ( Miski) that I have ever seen. I hope to check out one of their vest patterns that has caught my eye. Yardage for the pattern is difficult to find online, so a plan will have to develop.

Last, but not least, the most ugly socks are finished. The first one has been languishing for at least 2 years. They are destined as a gift for someone who loves pink...and I hope to never see them again.

Did the time change kick anyone's butt but mine? How does one little hour do that?

Here's to a great weekend, cheers!

First of all - those socks are NOT ugly. There are two so I think they are beautiful.
I'm going to check out the vest patterns that you linked for us.
