Checking In

Been doing plenty of knitting lately. Haven’t actually finished anything since my Pink Spider Socks, but I’m getting closer to finishing about 4 other things.

Here are the Pink Spider Socks.

And here’s the Snapdragon Tam.

And so far, I’ve been sticking to my yarn diet.

It’s getting harder, though. The magical place where Lorna’s Laces do their thing is having a mill ends sale this Saturday. I know I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating – Lorna’s Laces mill ends are flipping awesome.

Also, I have a “Yarn Tasting” on Friday night. What’s a yarn tasting? It’s when a shop decides to share a bunch of different kind of yarns with a group of yarn enthusiasts. Usually you get a few yards, and while you knit it up, the shop owner or a representative talks about the yarn.

At least, that’s what happened the last time I went to a yarn tasting. It was a few years ago. It was great, because I was exposed to some different types of yarn that I may not have knit with otherwise.

This yarn tasting, like the last one I went to, is going to be held in a yarn shop. I’LL BE SURROUNDED BY YARN. YARN THAT IS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE.

I’ll try to stay strong.
