I took the socks in progress and the yarn for a felted bag I've wanted to knit for ages.
For the bag, I'm using the Noro Kureyon shade 164 that Ian bought for my birthday.I love the colours, but it feels so rough, especially after using the Piece of Beauty sock yarn. It's like knitting with rope!
Speaking of birthdays, yet another book from DH came this week.
" At Knits End " has some humerous bits but 2 of my favourite bits were acronyms.
The first, I definitely have problems with;
Thats Wool Housing And Containment Overflow! The removable bath panel comes to mind!
But I have yet to achieve the second acronym;
This stands for Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy!! It explains that if you didn't buy another ball of yarn AND knit full time until the end of your time here on earth, you still wouldn't use all the yarn in your stash!! I wonder if anyone out there is at this stage already?
Stand forward and be counted, or at least post a pic of your stash!!
