I had to detox from the sock knitting. It was so bad!

Well, last week I was all crazy with the sock knitting. This week? Um, not so much. I have been knitting with some sock yarn though. . . . We have some STR in Sherbet (top) and STR in Chapman Springs (bottom). Hmm, what could this turn into?
Oh, it's a Chevron Scarf. The pattern is from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I have to admit, I have had the book awhile and never thought of knitting this scarf. It was so one of those things where I started to see a lot of them out in blogland/Ravelry/etc. and had to have one for myself. My sister called my scarf loud, but I don't care. It's awesome. I have become so totally obsessed with knitting this thing I have knitted little else over the last dew days. :)

The Morning Glory Wrap has been sitting quietly and sadly while I knit the scarf.

Someday it will have its turn. Perhaps when the scarf is done.

And, now onto some sock yarn.

First off, I am very excited to say that Knitting Like Crazy hand-dyed yarn will soon be in a LYS near you (well, it will be in Plainfield, IL, so if that is near to you then it will be in an LYS near you. If you don't live close to Plainfield, IL, then I am sorry for getting you all excited)!! I have been talking to the owner of Strands of Heaven, and I will be dyeing up some yarn for them in a colorway to be sold exclusively at the store. This is very exciting yet totally scary for me at the same time. But mostly exciting! Anyway, I will keep you posted about that little endeavor as it develops.

And, second, here is some yummy sock yarn on my Etsy site: It's Starburst. It's been up on the site for four months. On etsy, your listing expires after that, but I, of course, am going to repost it to my site to try to sell it. It's had to believe that it's already been four months in the whole "I want to dye yarn and sell it" thing. I don't think I will be slowing down anytime soon. I love it too much! :) Anyway, if you want to see more pictures of this can you can do so here.

Well, that's all the knitting/sock yarn goodness I have for today. Tonight there will be ditching of ballroom dancing class so Alex and I can watch The Office and play our BRAND NEW NINTENDO WII!!! (Sorry for the yelling, but I am excited about the Wii. I had been calling Gamestop for weeks and yesterday when I called and they said they had one I bolted out of work so fast I don't think my boss hardly noticed I was gone). :) This weekend should be pretty low key with some decent knitting time planned.

Happy knitting!

  5. I highly recommend this colorway. I just finished the first sock of the sunburn, and it's gorgeous.
    OMG, you have to get the Wii surgery game. It's so amazing.
