Yarn Swap HoI had a FABULOUS time yesterday at Knit Happens... not only did I enjoy knitting and chatting, I also scored big at the yarn swap! I brought the leftovers (enough of each for a tank/short sleeve sweater) from the peach turtleneck I knit last winter, as well as the leftover cotton glace from my Vogue Knitting tank. Both found new homes. However, since there were several serious stashers there who were all attempting to go home with slightly less yarn than they had brought, I was able to score quite a few things. I'm not quite sure yet what any of this will become, and on some I'm not really even sure what I've got, but I'm sure it'll either find a project, or will come to the next yarn swap!
This will probably end up as some VERY nice socks for S (stupid boys with their boring socks!):
This is earmarked for a simple pullover v-neck for me:
Yeah, have no idea what this'll end up as...
I'm thinking if I can ever find a coordinating yarn, this would make a really beautiful accent at cuffs and collar:
I'm thinking of trying to do a striped tank top, but I'm not sure yet. I also have some leftover black cotton blend yarn that I could intersperse sparsely to break up the colors a bit...
These will probably end up as socks:
I'm thinking a couple of fun accessory scarves:
Wow. That's a lot of yarn. :) I guess I'll also spend this weekend reorganizing my yarn drawers in order to fit it all somewhere!
I'm also making good progress on my dad's vest... I stole one of his store-bought sweater vests from the house yesterday, so I can hopefully get the measurements to match up (more or less). So far, I seem to be pretty much on target...
Cricket had a lot of fun this morning helping me photograph my new yarn. She especially liked the Mission Falls, but that's probably because it came from someone who has a kitty, and even though she and Cricket are pen pals, Cricket prefers to attack anything that smells like another kitty (including, if possible, the other kitty). So the Mission Falls was quickly rescued and sent to safety in the bottom of the bag.
