Lots to Blog About This Week

Update on the tote, no knitting yet today, at home, so this is while at work May 2,3,4. It is going to be huge and I can't wait to see it felt. Next pic will be off the needles, maybe Saturday night??? Maybe

OK yarn stash update:

I was fortunate enough to get in on 2 SNEAK UPS at the Loopy Ewe Look at this yarn loverliness.

From the top there are 2 skeins of Interlacements Tiny Toes in Fireplace Embers.To the right of that we have Cider Moon Glacier in June Carter(lucious) Back to the left under TT is Yarn Pirate in Primrose, then Seacoast Handpainted(from NH yea New England) in Cobbler(I want to eat it) then below that is Perchance to Knit in Bouganvillea with the most sparkly stitch marker, then my Loopy Groupie perk of the Opal in the perfect purple/black combo.

So now you are saying "Lucky Girl", right? Look

So what's the big deal? Wendy made a pair of socks with a yarn from Zen String Serendipity Yarn in this colorway. I had to have it and emailed ZS and asked to be informed when more was available and they contacted me before the dyeing and saved me two. Isn't that glorious?? Now why this colorway? My older DS , 22, is getting his Masters this month, he will be going into editing, publishing , eventually teaching. He has a very eclectic preppy style, wears sweater vests(no I haven't knit any recently)olives, khakis...and his name is BEN!!! Cool, eh?
The blue yarn you can see in the back is an Etsy purchase from Middle Earth Yarns , the colorway is Elfine River and came from Scotland, do check out the site it is grand yarn.
There is more yarn from EBAY purchases and of course we mustn't forget the lovely Cascade yarn from my pal Angela in the PRGE shown behind the ME yarn and below.

I also received my copy of Charmed Knits, the book of Harry Potter knits...woohoo.

I keep losing battery power before I can photo my Mr Potato Head and Eiffel Towers are per request of one of my Pals.
I promise by Sunday night , Pal
