FO, WIPs, and YARN!!!!!

All kinds of good stuff to share with you all! I have an FO that I finished last week to share first. It's the Couvercle hat from Knitty. I love this hat and I know I will be making many more.

A little better lighting for the real color of the hat.

This is a hat that I started last week but frogged while at work on Saturday. I wasn't pleased out it was coming out. I restarted it the same day and finished it last night. But the BF took it before I got a picture... I also started a new hat in NOTRE DAME colors last night and it's almost finished already.. I think I will be making at least 2 more of these after I'm done. Brother, Dad and BF are getting hats for Christmas!

These are basic socks for my mom. I have been slowly working on these during some of my doctor's appointments I've been having.

These are my Sailor's Delight in Dream in Color Smooshy. I really like these socks, but after a whole summer of nothing but socks... I'm got a little bored.


Noro Sock KAL with my girls Wendy, Stacey, and Chan. We are all knitting the Anastasia pattern with noro sock yarn. It's a great pattern, easy after I figured out how to do toe up and fast with the Noro.

Wendy had this crazy sock yarn in her stash, Tofutsies. I knew she would never use it, so I was trying to make the Charade socks with it. I will need to rip and restart because the cables are all wonky and pulling the sock weird ways, but I might see if it looks okay on my sock blocker first...

OH MY GOODNESS. When I opened the package from my Secret Swap Pal from the Summer of Yarn Love swap, I SCREAMED!!!! SOCKS THAT ROCK! I have never even seen a skein of this in person and there it was in my hands, my very own skein. I was very lucky to have a great swap partner!!! :)

Here are the colors on the back... LOVE IT! It's called Chapman Springs.

I got this excellent sock yarn from Eat.Sleep.Knit and I love it! It's Unique Sheep in Cherry Blossom. I am kind of obsessed with cherry blossoms, so I knew I had to add this to the collection. I am still working on getting a tattoo of a cherry blossom branch on my foot... I can't wait.

Next I am flashing some of my stash.. Just because I finally got it all organized and it's so pretty... :) And at least 1 more hat! :)

Love the hat! OMG socks that rock heaven! I love STR! :) You are one lucky gal. Looks like you are a rapid fire sock knitter :)

I should have at least 1 pair done when I come back from vaca. :)

I thought I saw STR in your stash photos!! I don't have any yet and hope to correct that one of these days. Love the hat. Love the socks, and I'll have to take my Anastasia supplies with me to the beach!
