Need more yarn

...so the 2-at-a-time socks are finished. The pattern is Berry Season (these are named Blue- Berry Season) and were knit from 2 skeins of Mirasol Hacho on size 4 needles.










It was such a relief to finish a pair of socks that another pair was cast-on. These are 'what the ?' socks. Knit from Noro Silk Garden Sock, the finished product looks nothing like the original skein...see?




Mitizi and I laughed a lot at the sock coming off the skein. It was being knit on the ferry and a couple of people commented that the sock looked nothing like the yarn and asked if it really did come from that skein. Hee hee -typical Noro.



With some successful knitting under my belt, we descended upon the WI Sheep and Wool Festival. There were many stash enhancement opportunities which need to be added to my Ravelry stash. Here are a couple of teasers:








Briar Rose Charity - with buttons! This is destined to become a jacket I've been thinking about for the last month.


some wonderful yarn for a gift Bugg will love - fiber escapes me...let's call this Softee Softee.


and a little something for Georgia - this silk and wool roving from Creatively Dyed. Absolutely yummy!

You are wondering if this is all, right? ummm, no. There are other things that just followed me home but it is safer to just add them to my Rav stash in case my honey is reading.

Books?

I've been going through my enormous collection of books and have a list of de-stash to post soon. Keep an eye out, I will put the list here and on Ravelry as well.
