My sock kit pal rules
edit: The Lisa Souza is indeed 'wild things' and the STR is 'Lagoon'. Did STR stop naming the yarns after minerals?! That's sad.
I am convinced I had the best sock kit pal. Check it out:
Here are the totes she made for me. Is the fabric perfect or what?
The little pouch was filled with tons of goodies, and the bag was filled with tea and chocolate (eaten):
Also, one of three balls of yarn, that blue Online. But I also got some LiSa SouZa yarn. It's very squishy, I may need more.
Oh, and if that wasn't enough, Socks that Rock! I finally get some to try! (squeee!)
Isn't she great!?!? Thanks pal Kristen!!
Before I moved, I purchased some things from Knitpicks. From the random change I found I ordered the fancy-schmacny new interchangeable needles. Like many others, I'm in love. They are not too heavy, the join is great, and they are seriously pointy. Plus, I love the little folio they come in. I'm going to order more pages next time.
I also ordered the new silk and wool sock yarn, Gloss:
The blue one if for me, the beige is for my hubby. It feels great, and has a nice subtle sheen. I won't get to it for a month or so, but I'll let you know how it knits up.
I also ordered a batch of Shine Sport for the Magknits ballet camisole. Shine is a great yarn, and if you hate cotton, try this stuff. The modal makes all the difference. It may have a slight splitty tendency, but the new needles eliminated any trouble for me.
