Pictures!!

Wow that took awhile to upload!! Didn't realize I took so many pictures.

First we have the finished first clue of the Halloween Mystery shawl aka Dracula's Bride.


And some close ups.


And here is the Knit Picks Gossamer that I got in the mail the other day.
Isn't it pretty??

And here finally is the Purewool that I got a couple weeks ago.

First up the colorway called Nuts. What I ordered is on the right. What I got is on the left.

I am not happy with the color variance at all. I've got a dye kit coming and I do believe I'll overdye it with some brown and see what I get.

This is Columbia and it is right on the money.

The Lace Blue is pretty too.

And lastly Firebrick. Yummmm!! This is what I was originally going to use for the Halloween shawl. I'll find something else for it laters.

And now for the goodies from Huacaya Moon.

The Moss Kid Seta. It is soooo soft.

The two books I picked up.


Here is the spindle that I picked up awhile ago. I haven't sat and played with it again yet. The roving is much more red than it looks here.


Some RubySaphire sock yarn I picked up a few months ago and never blogged about. It's called Brayden.

A skein of yarn from Perchance to Knit in the Harlot's Peacock or Midnight Rainbow colorway. I swear there is some color in there. It isn't just black. hehe It smells sooo good and is soft and yummy.

And here is the yarn I got for scarves for the family.

Just your basic Red Heart Symphony.
The pattern I'm using is super easy. Cast on a multiple of 4 + 1. Every row is *Knit 3, Purl 1* to the last stitch, Knit 1. You end up with a really nice wide rib. You get a garter ridge, knit ridge, garter ridge, purl ridge pattern across.

I picked up this duffel bag kit at Wal-Mart the other day when I got the scarf yarn. Man I love Wal-Mart clearance racks. lol

And here are my just because prizes from the Secret of the stole.

A really cool needle pouch from Lantern Moon.

A set of stitch markers from The Knit Stitchery.
And a tape measure from Lantern Moon.
There was also a 10% discount card from One Planet Yarn & Fiber. I can't wait to pick something out.

Ok now I really must stop trying to type. I've had a bit to drink tonight and omg my face is getting fuzzy feeling. hehehe *Drunk blogger alert!!* lol

I have that bee tape measure, too. Isn't it the cutest?

Speaking of hooch, there's a yarn shop in MN with a cafe that serves wine. I have enough trouble keeping track of where I"m at in a pattern sober. I think a little buzz might yield a third arm on a sweater! lol
