This is my 23rd post... That's not that many, but I'm still getting the hang of this whole blogging thing! Today is a BIG update with lots of pictures!

First up is the 5 hats I've knit for a GREAT CAUSE (rav link)! I know that Wendy has more brims for me to knit and I'm sure I will see her this weekend to start knitting on those! It's such and nice and easy project for me to work on while I'm on the bus to and from work... :) There are a few different hat designs in that pile with a variety of colors! Blue, green, cream, black, and purple!

So, while I was in Pittsburgh with Wendy, we made a few stops at some LYS's... Well, I know I'm on this yarn and personal diet, but I couldn't resist. I bought a few thing to enhance my stash.. I do have rules about the yarn... I can't cast on for any projects with any of this yarn until I've completed my challenge..

First up... some Berroco Comfort in a varigated Olive Green colorway... It's such a GREAT yarn for hats..

And some Berroco Comfort in Brown..

I was not even ABLE to pass this up! 2 skeins of Collinette Jitterbug.. YUMMY! It's going to become a Chevron Scarf.. I'm jumping on the bandwagon and I can't wait!

Here is all my Jitterbug! They are all very similar, but that's why I love them. I ordered the one in the middle with my first Loopy Ewe order a few weeks ago... I just can't wait to cast on a beautiful pair of socks with it...

So, we walked into one of the LYS's and these two skeins of Cascade 220 jumped into my hands and I was unable to put them down! They were 30% off and I HAD to get them... I have NO idea what I will make with them... so if you have any ideas, please share... I am thinking of some leg warmers.. but I'm still deciding!

And I told you I would have an FO for you... FINALLY... My FANTASTIC Tofutsies socks! I just LOVED working with this yarn and making socks.. I finally caught the sock bug and I can't wait to get more completed!!

They fit just perfectly! I made the one about 1/2" longer than the first one because I was not paying attention and just kept knitting, but they still look great! Now I need to wear them out :)

I've had problems too with Cascade 220 jumping at me and forcing me to take it home. I don't feel too bad about it though, cause there are lots of possibilities for it. Plus, Cascade yarns are still a bit of a new thing in Canada.

Another Tofutsies fan! Hooray! All of your FOs look so very nice.
