Odds, Ends, Sox, and Such

Go Red Sox must be said. They are rockin right now and I am one happy camper! On to knitting:

It has been a bit since I updated last so this may turn out to be a long one, so bear with me. First up is this gorgeous yarn that I purchased from Jessi over at Alabama Fiber Dreams. She also sent along a beautiful stitch marker. The yarn is called Pumpkin Spice and the fact that I love pumpkin meant I had to have this lovely yarn.

Next up my Brother and Sister in Law just got back from Japan and The Philiphines and brought me back these awesome Bamboo needles and too cute socks.

Anyone want to take a guess at how much I paid for all of these gorgeous fabrics? A very cool chain fabric/craft - store is downsizing here in the East and walking buy I saw a sign that said $.50 per fabric sample. I looked at my friend and asked did I read that correctly? For $2.73 I got all of these upholstery grade fabrics - aren't wonderful? Lots to sew....

Up next is our regular schedule knitting content. Remember this hat, well I didn't really care for how it turned out so I decided to rip and repeat. I also finished another hat for the same friend so she could give them to her neighbor. I give you a real pumpkin and an apple. After these two hats I finished 2 more Coronets for a co-worker. I love this hat and I plan on making lots more. The cable on this hat is simple, but lovely and I love how it pops in the purple. It is harder to see in the black, and for future projects I will be sticking to lighter colors such as browns and grays when doing this pattern. I love it when the cable draws you in.

Off to finish my laundry and dishes that I have been avoiding.
