NoSoKnit 2011!

If you can imagine, I took absolutely not one photo at this year's event! But I did take a photo of what I bought.

First pick was the Claudia sock yarn in Cabin Fever...full of coppery browns, lavender-mauves, and lightwash denim blue. My plan is to make Barb's Koigu Scarf from that.

And truly that was to be the only purchase today...just a hair over my budgeted amount...until everyone I knew began to pick up the incredibly dyed cotton yarn from WollesYarnCreations and I was helping my friend, Babs, decide on colorways and look at patterns...

I wavered...and finally caved to the bright burgundy, dark gray to black mix you see there and the Old Shale version of shawl called Theodora.

I managed to get almost to the point of sewing down the picot hem of my first charcoal gray sock today, so that was a very very good thing! And I left early, because I just was so tired. So now, rather than taking a good nap, I'm here updating the blog yet again...

I hope you appreciate that! *wink*

Now once I put these two yarns into my Ravelry stash, I think I'll cave to the bed...at least for a little bit.

I used Claudia's sock yarn years ago and the colors faded something awful. Have you experienced that? I just love her colorways but am very hesitant to buy it again.

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
