This is going to be a short post with lots of pictures. I'm tired and want to go to bed soon. I have been dying up lots of yarn for Stitches Midwest and even had to order more. I'm mainly dying yarn back in Rockford because I have things the next 3 weekends. I hope to see some of you guys there.
Talking about dyed yarn, the yarn below needs to go. I'll sell each skein for a low discount of $13. Each skein has 400+ yards and are all superwash. Message me if interested.

My otherorder of and Spunky Eclectic club packages were waiting for me when I got back to Iowa yesterday. I love the Handgefarbe colours and adore the Romney wool Amy sent. *drool*

While I was home I took a visit to The Fold and found this, a Blue Moon Fiber Arts skein of sport weight with 620 yards. I heard holiday gifts for Boy, my dad and brother. 620 yards!!! Yeah, it came home with me.

I have been knitting a lot lately. I have a plain vanilla pair in my Merino extra fine. The colourway is Raptor's Tower. You get 574 yards! I may have enough left over for another pair. Wow. . .

I am also trying to finish some of my holiday gifts before school starts. Ugh! Below is the first, yes still first, sock of my mom's Brigids. I love how they're turning out and the colour is perfect for her.

I have also changed to the handspun given to me by Sarah of The colourway is Tulips from Spunky Eclectics fiber club. I believe it is from 2007. The wool is corriedale and I LOVE how it feels. I wish it would stripe more, but oh well. She'll like them anyways,

It is now 6 days until I see Boy again. I miss him a lot. =/ I also miss Mac who is in Rockford staying with my parents while I'm gone for a few days. It's soo lonely here. =(

Damn I haven't see Joe in 8 weeks. Try that. lol. Our little reunion is coming up in a couple of days.

Dang...that last sock looks like Noro. I'm really digging the colors.

I'm not even going to Stitches this year. I'm so broke it's sick. Plus, I have a car payment to make right now, and a reception gift to by for Sunday. Ehhhhh.
