Yarn diet is over!

My latest yarn order arrived yesterday and boy is it wonderful. I my even be ready to place a second order! Oh My!

Look at that NORO. I've never had it before but I have been wanting to try the booga j felted bag and just never saw this yarn at either of our local yarn stores... so I have been losing all the auctions on ebay so I figured I might as well just order it! Plus I also ordered these:

That is a lot of sock yarn. But it was all on sale. So of course I had to dip into my latest and first paycheck of the year. It all looks and feels wonderful. I don't think I'll have to leave my house all winter with all this yarn! Next I have to decide where exactly it is going to go.

I finished up one more pair of pink socks for Gracie's 2nd birthday to go with the last pair and hat.

They came out really cute. Small and cute! I even started (fianlly) on my trekking-along socks! I just cast on this morning, so there isn't much to show you. I am just on the ribbing. I am making the "more fun than cable" sock from Marguerite's site. So far so good. But what I show be doing is sitting down to read from my latest book which needs to be finished by Thursday's Bookclub meeting. Wish me luck!

There's nothing like getting new yarn. The Noro colors are gorgeous. Have fun knitting it. Can hardly wait to see what you do with it.

You will love the Noro. I love watching the colors change as I knit. I've knit/felted with Kuryon combined with cascade 220 and the fabric it makes is wonderful. Enjoy!

Noro is so much fun to knit with because as you go along all these cool colour changes happen. I have made 2 booga bags and they are both in constant use.

I did a couple booga bags in Noro. It felts wonderfully and you don't have to worry about matching the stripes when you hit a knot in the skein.

Gracie's socks look great. So girlie girl with the purples.
