New Yarn, FO

This weekend was a blast. First I made it to Fuzz!! Thursday just as some very sparkly very new sock yarn was being pulled out of the box. Of course I bought a skein and am killing myself for not buying one of every color. I am going to be at Fuzz again on Friday night and if there is still the yummy sparkly sock yarn it will be going home with me!

I also bought some Ultra Alpaca for a hat I had found on Ravelry that morning. It turned into Habitat by Jared Flood. I love his designs and love this hat! I ordered some Swish Worsted from Knit Picks so I can knit the Hemlock Ring Blanket.

Saturday I went to Handmade too and they were having a surprise sale -- 40% off anything pink, white or red. It included books and all yarns. I just about lost it in the store, but, since Larry was with me I was VERY good:) I only bought 1 skein of yarn and 2 magazines. I got the new Debbie Bliss Magazine and I must knit LouLaBelle Bag. It is so cute. Yarn wise, I bought a skein of Rowan Kidsilk Night in Pink. Since I finished the swallowtail I have been eying more lace patterns and the Rowan is something I would probably never buy at full price, so since it was on sale I had to buy some and now I just need a project to match.

Well, back to the cabled sock I have never made the 2nd one for. I must finish those so I can knit some with the sparkly yarny goodness from Fuzz!! (So I can buy more of it guilt free:)
