Recent acquisitions.

OK- so that thing you saw last week, it is a Sidewinder. A sock by Nona. We did a KAL, Sit N Knit NYC. I am glad we did it together. I finished the one sock. It is brilliant construction. I did a 3 needle bindoff for the leg part (garter) and grafted the rest. Look at this under the toe grafting. Cool ha?
However, I did not feel connected to this design. The second sock may take time. I do love the yarn by nickerjack. And Rain, I too had to do some very acrobatic maneuvers to get this shot...

I have not told you everything. Its true. Here are some lovelies
from Astrid: Regia Kaffe Fassett, Trekking Bamboo solids, and a cool needle holder. Astrid also sent me a set of fab DPN us0. How did she know I was thinking of a very intricate glove? Have I been thinking out loud? Thanks, A! It was super fast service. Also found its way to my mail box, a lone skein of Sundara's sock yarn in Stormy. I am working away to finish this cardi, and I ran out of yarn for the collar! Its Knit-Picks yarn, so I hope to have no trouble finding it. I finished the the seaming and I got a new blocking board (thanks for a tip on Ravelry I got it for 50% from, and the shipping was free.) but now I have to wait to get the yarn. I may "have" to buy some extra yarn to get free shipping... And speaking of Ravelry, I am managing my time much better! I have been working on a tea cosy. Joined a summer camp swap. Joined a Mystery Sock KAL, for the fall, and over all having a grand old time meeting more knitters from all over and adding items to my queue... At least it is all in one place!
