In which I fall off the wagon


It is official. I've fallen off the Stashalong Bandwagon!

I was temped by these beauties. 2 skeins of Trekking XXL and 2 skeins of some really great sock yarn that Lana is using to make a Clapotis that will be some very cheerful socks.

I do still intend to limit my yarn purchases to a minimum since I do have plenty of yarn with which to knit. Kind of my own modified stashalong, I suppose.

Monday is my first day being back at work and I'm currently trying to figure out what kind of project to bring with me to knit at lunch. Before the knitting bug bit me I always brought a book with me to work, and I suppose I could still do that.

Currently on my needles are Owen's sweater (which is so not going to be finished by Saturday night, so don't ask), a pair of socks in the Regia I got for "Christmas" and the scarf from my Secret Pal. Since I plan on finishing the scarf tonight my work knitting projects could either be the socks, the sweater or something else altogether. Any ideas?

Congrats on the new job! I love your new Trekking yarn, it looks just like the new colors I just got (#100 & #107).

Stashalongers are just dropping like flys. I feel this weekend, a 30% off storewide sale was just the last straw. hehehe

The Trekking is great! I made a pair in the same colorway and I absolutely love them. The pink/red colorway is going to be perfect for spring socks!

Kepp your eyes open for your needle exchange package this week :-)
