I've got Yarn!!!

My husband thinks I'm nuts. I was waltzing through the kitchen singing, "I've got Yaarrnn! I've got Yaarrnn!"

This morning I brought more Fiber Fish Mitten patterns into the LYS and they were having a SALE. While I was there I met my two knitting buddies, Lynn and Kat. I also met someone from the Forest City Knit Club and a real live reader of my blog. It was an amazing moment because she recognized me by my cable-bordered sweater. So Hi there! friendly reader, I'm sorry I didn't get your name. My only excuse is the yarn high I was on. Look what I got in trade for my patterns:

The green and white is called Quebecois and I can't seem to find it anywhere on the net. I've been told that it knits up beautifully though. There is also a lonely skein of red in the back there. I've got plans for some Christmas gifts from it. The Dalegarn Falk is also intended for Christmas presents. I have some more in the stash in cream and blue.

All I have to show for a weeks worth of knitting is four wash cloths:

The Groovy Girl is just for fun. I got her from a secret Santa at work one Christmas.

I've started working on my dad's vest again. I'm at 14 inches now. I'm almost ready to start the arm holes and neck shaping. I've graphed the shaping so that I can keep track of it all. Now that I think of it, I'd better check my measurements again because I may have to start the neck shaping before the armhole. Wha! Gotta go! Where's my pattern?

  1. My husband doesn't voice it, but I do get the eye roll. ;) Nice return on the patterns! I've never heard of Quebecois. What weight and fiber is it?
