Yarn!!!

Here is what I got with my coupon! Koigu KPM for socks; BabyBoo in 2 colors for colorwork socks; and 8 skeins of Tahki Cotton Classic for a tank top. I am actually planning on making all these for me. It seems very selfish- but I want you to know that in 5 years of knitting, I have only made myself 3 shirts (that I kept). I have done a lot of knitting, but not for me. And I do intend to keep that up- but I also intend to find out why some of my family keep asking me for handknit socks. Why are they so much better than purchased? I believe it- but I want to test the theory myself ;)
There is that, and there is the fact that I was pleased with the silk tank top I made myself early this year and want to see if I can make a better one with cotton. I am a bit low on tank tops nowadays- and they are my favorite summer wear.
Besides, if I get to this "selfish" knitting before Christmas, I will be shocked. I have so much knitting that must be done before Christmas that anything not intended for a gift is very low on the list! But I am enjoying looking at my new yarn and feeling how very soft it is! :) So wild. It's still odd that I actually won a drawing.


Well, other than that, it's been a normal busy week. Keeping up with the kids and working on the LotR sock club sock patterns-- as well as keeping my house clean.......which reminds me...........I gotta go now. ;)


Enjoy the eye candy!!

Wow, nice yarn, good colors. Never won yarn, bet it doesn't get much better then that.
I've made a few pair of socks for myself (to get the hang of it) and love them. Try it you'll never want to go back. :)
