One Done!

Yarntini Mint Mojito in the Feather Pluckin' Pattern by Erin Vaughan:

I think I have to go back and look at my old snakey socks - these are definitely looking reptilian. The pattern is very easy and I love the round toe. I am casting sock #2 on later today, but mostly I am going to work on this sock:
This is my Elegance Sock from Anni Design at Sockamania. I am really liking the Spritely Goods Fey yarn. This color is just so lovely. I am just starting the heel flap on this sock.

I cast this on this morning. The yarn is the Queensland Collection Kathmandu DK. It is a Merino/Silk/Cashmere blend (this was some of my haul from the sidewalk sale over at Coldwater earlier in August) and I think it will be a very comfy sweater for this upcoming chilly winter. I have a window cracked open in my office for the fresh air and it smells like SNOW people!

I would be remiss if I didn't mention the package I received from The Loopy Ewe yesterday. This was from the sneak up a week and a half ago. The green is Dream in Color Smooshy, which I have been aching to try since I started watching Wendy in her sock frenzy this summer. The bottom is Spiced Chai from Crystal Palace. The Teenager declared the Spiced Chai to be as smooshy as the Smooshy. (I also should mention there was a Sneak Up yesterday as well, la dee dah, tum te tumm....hmmm nothing going on over, she has tons of that Crystal Palace in stock - she's not gonna ship for a week or so between the 13th and the 20th because of their move to the new digs - so get in there while you can.)

There, enabling, pron etc. done for the day. Now I must knit to keep my head above fiber.

I have to make the most of my knitting time today because we have music and football practice tonight, more football practice tomorrow night, open ice practice for hockey scrimmage tryouts on Friday and Sunday AND the last regular season football game on Saturday morning, after that it's playoffs! Puck's team is (Edited to correct) 5 wins and 1 loss for the season, they are psyched for this last game!

I recognize a KP&S pattern there - must be a new one, too - haven't seen it before. That'll be cute!
I love the way the color "puddles" in the green socks! Unpredictable yarns are so much fun to knit with! (lunch is over - back to work)
I remember that yarn - It's the "I met you that day" yarn. I know what you mean by it smells like snow!
Kathmandu Aran has a tendancy to really bloom after it's washed. Does DK have the same quality?
That wrap sweater looks suspiciously like it's printed on Knitting Pure and Simple yellow paper. Is that were that pattern is from?
I roamed a bit in the 'Dream in Colour'- great name! great colours, indeed. Love the yarntini sock, the elegant sock, beautiful pattern for a sweater and well... do i have to mention that i love that DC green? Here it smells like autumn. A crispy autumn. Do you know what I mean?
Guinifer - I left sent you an e-mail with an attachment. (Pattern) I just didn't want you to think it was spam.
I love that wrap sweater! I have that pattern and it's on my "to do" list too. The yarn you chose sounds so heavenly! Love the green socks.
I love the green socks, very nice. And the Arwen is gorgeous! Beautiful work.

Isn't this weather something? I had the a/c on Sunday evening and the furnace on Tuesday morning.
