come here, my pretty.......

This week brought the second installment of the CSK, the archery socks. When I saw the pattern I KNEW I had to buy the varigated yarn that was in the sample. I'm not much of a red person myself, so I chose this gorgeous blue/pink/purple. It's the Seattle colorway from abstract fiber. Their website does not do it justice. I just want to pet it and look at it. It's amazing.

This week also brought a FO. Here's the august tulip socks, done in sheepaints bamboolaine that I purchased from a ravelry destash.

I'm also sad to announce the demise of bee fields. Just wasn't working out the way I expected it to. It's a gorgeous pattern, although quite advanced, and the yarn just wasn't doing it justice. I'll start it again with something more appropriate. I have my eye on some lace from the original custom dyed kit that's in a rav destash.

It was a busy yarn buying week here. (don't 'cha just love the internet?)
I was invoiced and paid for my woolgirl cheshire cat kit, and also took advantage of the 10percent off blue moon coupon to buy their new pattern and a skein for a pooling scarf for my new coat. Next week, the loopy ewe sock club will invoice and ship. YIKES! I'd better get to knitting.

Since the demise of bee fields, I'm working on Birch by chrissy gardiner. I've never done entrelac, or entrelac with lace, so I'm really enjoying the challenge. The Yarn is the sanguine gryphon bugga in rainbow scarab, purchased especially for this project. love, love, love it!

Last but not least, look what $5 will get ya. I normally don't do this kind of misc yarn, but there were 2 skeins of alpaca in there, and that made it worth it......

Yes, two skeins of alpaca would make it worth it.

You are SUCH a enabler...I LOVE the Seattle colorway! LOVE.IT.
I had the original Bee Fields yarn, and traded it. Not my color at all. You've reminded me of two things I hope to pick up after the show this weekend - think spendy thoughts for me, okay? We need good sales!
