I wanted to get the yarn purchases from the last four weeks out of the way....first two are from Knitorious, the second two from Hearthstone Knits, and the 6 "Potters" from Weaving Department.

Ron is already on the needles - I've started a pair of socks using the pattern Swan Song Toe-up Socks from WendyKnits - the pattern is available from the Loopy Ewe or from Wendy's page. I've started and frogged it three times - once, I was trying Lombard Street (needs a semi-solid or a solid), then on US3s (too big) then on US2s (still too big) - and now I'm cruising on US1s with magic loop. Zoom!!

That's all for today - I went to the zoo with Rae and her husband's Aunt Becky and am pooped!

Cheers!
