Weekend Review

I do not have much to report from this weekend as I have spent it sick on my couch. I did get myself out of the house for a little while on Saturday to get some fresh air and Sunshine by attending the Hyattsville Arts Festival and The Plucky Knitter Trunk show at Fibre Space.

I wanted so many of her yarn, but at the end I got just two skeins of her fingering yarn. As beautiful as her yarn is my wallet was kicking and screaming in protest.

I plan on making the Pair-a-normal socks that came out with the most recent issue of Knitty.

Are these not the coolest socks you ever seen?
I will be using the Gray yarn as the main color and the Pink yarn for the Skulls. I plan to make the toes and top bands in solid pink. That way I can get a lot more use of the pink yarn and not have too much left over.

Aside, from buying yarn and planning what to make with it. I worked on my Stole and I am happy to report that I am almost done with it. I want to have it done by Thursday so I can block it over the weekend and have something to show next week. As much fun as this project has been, I am ready to move on and finish some of the other projects I have on the needles.

Finally, I blocked my Color Affection Shawl. I will be taking photos of it tonight and have photos up tomorrow.

Until next time, Happy knitting!
