goodies, goodies and more goodies

This week brought the rain back! That's OK, though. The mailbox had a surprise almost every day.
#1 Loopy ewe sock club
The yarn is mad tosh sock in a beautiful fall color.
Not too hot on the patterns, though. This might have to be a shawl or a man-sock

#2 Blue moon order
yarn is love-in-idleness for a pooling scarf that will match my new winter coat
pattern is moonstruck - love it - now just waiting for the proper yarn to arrive.

If you haven't seen wenat's pooling scarves, you have truly missed something. beautiful! (even barbara walker commented on the one she was wearing at sock summit)

#3 CSK goodie bag. Very nice. Lots of trinkets and some fun stuff.
If it's a sneak peek of future indie dyers in this project, I'm really in trouble. really.

As you can see, it's been ozzie tested and approved........

And, like I need more yarn, I'm absolutely obsessed with these gradience colorways.
They're the october selected dyer for the CSK. I'm planning on making the socks and a shawl would be awesome. Gotta hang with the cool kids.

last but not least, half a birch.I've always wanted to try entrelac, and this was a great introduction.
Done in sanguine gryphon bugga, rainbow scarab.
I may never knit with another kind of yarn again. It's amazing. No wonder the line at sock summit was an hour long......

just came over from Bea's blog. SOOO glad that I did, great knitting and that boxer baby - OMG.I have a "grandson" boxer named Bubbha. Am very interested in what yarn you'll use for 'Moonstruck'. My pattern arrived three weeks ago and I'm no closer to choosing ... maybe something will jump out at Rhinebeck!
