Can't we all just knit along?

I'm going to put a little jog in this post so that I don't spoil the Rockin' Sock Club for anyone. If you don't want the surprise to be ruined, turn away now!

Here's a photo of my kitty to fill the space...

There! that should do it!

April'07 Rockin Sock Club

This is my Rockin' Sock Club Skein. Ain't it purdy? I have a few other projects on the list before this one.

One of them is the Chevron Scarf:

Pink Elephants

Did you know that "seeing pink elephants" is a term (from the 50's) used when you are way too drunk, hallucinating, high, hit in the head, or have looked at the sun too long? It's all true! So, I think it's funny that Vera Bradley has a line called Pink Elephants. The pattern has elephants, of course, but also has pink and green trippy paisley. And I love it! Do you think those proper Connecticut ladies from VB knew about where pink elephants really dwell when they named it? I do.
Here's a new yarn in my shop that might make one see pink elephants...

PINK ELEPHANTS- Hand Painted Superwash Sock Yarn

Guess what I named it? That's right! Pink Elephants!

I'm pitiful, I know.

I need to do something to fill the void that my STR order hasn't. I know they're busy with the Rockin' Sock Club, but I really want my new stuff! It's been a week since I ordered and I'm still "pending". I want to be "Filled" or "Completed". Even "Fully Shipped"! Why can't they see that? Why?

I was gonna call this post "Oops! I did it Again"...

Blue Moon Fiber Arts has just listed new colors! Here's what I ordered:







The first 4 are Lightweight (Mustang Sally will become something for my Mom),and the last 2 are Mediumweight and are destined to become a Chevron Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, for me. I think it will be obnoxiously bright and awesome!

Finished Pair

Trekking XXL #05 Socks

I'm wearing them now!
Now I'm working on another pair of socks in some of Lime & Violet's sock yarn, Penelope.


Winging It!

I'm working on this now. I'm not using a pattern because I'm a rebel. I even did calf increases! I'm unstoppable!

February Rockin' Sock Club Socks

I also Pre-Ordered yarn that I won't even see until June or July.

They were ordered from Astrid's Dutch Obsessions. They're Kaffe Fassett and I don't know much about him but I've seen his books, fabrics, and sweaters. He has a wonderful sense of color.
I can wait for yarn that looks this yummy!
