Just getting back from SnB, good times. I didn't buy anything, I can count that as the third time I've been into a yarn shop and not bought anything. I used up my free day as per the stashalong on Monday when S and I went down to Knitomatic's sale. I picked up some blush pink yarn for a top from Vintage Knits and a teeny tiny (8g) ball of Opal sock yarn to jazz up the toes and heels of some otherwise boring man socks in the near future. S bought sock yarn and hat yarn to knit for her boy toy, I'm going to make a sock knitter out of her yet.
Stashbuster project #1 is moving in a forward direction daily. I've promised myself that I'll add three squares a day to M's blanket but I've been knitting more than that most days and it's so cute and he loves playing with it already while I'm not working on it. I started a second stashbuster project on Friday that's actually almost done. A cropped raglan cardi (of my own design-and-knit as you go sort of thing) to wear over my cute red summer sundress in Knitpicks WOTA and some mohair that I had hanging around. The yarn is the natural dyeable and the mohair is beige so it's knitting up to have a cute tweedy effect that I like the depth of. The body is done and button bands are on so I just have a few rows on each sleeve then the ribbing to finish. I'm using both yarns doubled and 9mm needles so it's working up super fast. Surfing through the blogsphere the other day I fell in love with someone's Sunrise Circle Jacket from Interweave and I have two lots of stash yarn that might work so I'll be swatching them up sometime soon too.
The socks continue (I'm about halfway between the toe and the heel on the second sock) so I think I should have them done over the weekend at latest. Im working on Forecast a bit tonight too, the never ending second sleeve knits on.
