A little stash enhancement while I was gone . . . some Wollmeise Versuchskaninchen II (which means "experimental rabbits") via a ravelry trade. I love this colorway, as I do pretty much every Wollmeise colorway.
A great Woolgirl Sock Club kit also came in while I was away. The yarn is Miss Babs Yummy in "Lady Bug" colorway with a small skein of "Lady Bug Toes" for the heels and toes. The pattern is called Fly Away Home Socks by Lisa Dykstra. She also includes a ton of goodies in her kits as well. Everything came in a 7" Fibersphere, a really cool yarn thingy to hold your yarn.
The colors are very pretty - various reds and pinks - and the small skein is an almost blackish burgundy (or a burgundyish black), very yummy.
The goodies include a mini ladybug sphere to hold your stitchmarkers, a ladybug stitchmarker, a ladybug pen/tape measure combo, a ladybug emery board, a heartshaped notepad, eraser and refrigerator magnets, as well as some stickers and tattoos.
A couple of projects I've been working on include a baby blanket for my hairdresser's wife. Most of this was done on the plane (especially on the way home when I was stuck on my plane at the gate in NY for almost 4 hours). The pattern is Embossed Diamonds by Alison over at SpinDyeKnit. I already have about 8 inches done and love the pattern and yarn. The yarn is Socks that Rock Goody Goody in heavyweight, done on size 6 needles. Gotta get busy on this - baby due in December.
My Loopy Sock Club socks have been neglected since I started the baby blanket. I have finished the heel and have the foot to do. I think I'll take these with me to Texas this weekend when we go see OS play football.
