With the Christmas weekend over, my shipper came by today with some goodies for me. I am excited about all of them but more so about the tube that came from Signature Needle Arts.
After reading about it in the Yarn Harlot’s blog, I had to check it out. Admittedly, it is a bit rich for my purse so I bookmarked the site and looked at it on a regular basis with much longing. So regular in fact that a miracle happened. The husband did notice that I kept browsing that site and said two weeks ago that I can buy them a my Christmas present. Well, it’s sort of expected as he never really gets me anything; I buy the presents that I want/like anyway. But this is the first time that he acknowledged and contributed to my knitting
Yes! Yes! Yes!
To cut a long story short, I now own a green Signature Needle Art size 6, stiletto tip, 10″, bell cap straight knitting needle. *pets* I can’t wait to knit with these.
On the stash-building front, I received:
- 1 skein of BMFA STR Lightweight in Mustang Sally, a Rockin’ Sock Club colourway btw
- 1 skein of Opal Magic #1036
- 1 skein of Trekking XXL #30
- 10 skeins of Estelle 100% Silk
In the next few weeks I expect to receive:
- My barn sale items from Blue Moon Fiber Arts
- Sock yarns from Knit Picks
- 3 skeins of Sundara yarns from Anna’s stash
- Madeline Tosh sock yarn from a cosmicplutoknits destash
I chose my Rosebud Lightweight, one of the first orders I made at BMFA. I can’t get over how soft the yarn is in my hands. And the pattern is a dream! It’s easy to remember so I don’t even have to look at the print out anymore. I’m also knitting both socks toe-up on two different circulars at the same time, from either end of the yarn ball as I don’t want to run out of yarn. I also don’t want to have so much leftover either. If the socks don’t fit me then there’s always my daughters or my sister to take them. Here is a WIP photo, I have knitted a few more pattern repeats since this was taken yesterday.
