My stash acquisitions

Sandy brought to my attention at one point that everyone at the Knitter's Frolic was happy, it had to be the yarn. I think she was right. I'm not sure if it was being surrounded in a cocoon of fibres, or that we all share the same obsession with sticks and string. I gabbed with complete strangers like they were neighbors, we all spoke the same language. Terms like frogged, tinked, tension, gauge were local dialect we all understood. It was wonderful.

I was very proud of my restraint. Trick is to bring cash and leave ALL plastic cards at home. I could have done some serious injury to my bank account. LOL

There is some bright yellow green sock yarn I'm planning to make knee socks out of. My next purchase will be Cookie A's sock book. The lace weight is actually not this purple, it's much closer to a wine colour and I LOVE it. Now I'm on the hunt for the perfect pattern to go with it. There was also another couple balls of sock yarn that I got for a swap I'm involved in on Ravelry. They aren't pictured here because I don't want to ruin the surprise for my swapee.

As mum mentioned before, this is my necklace. It looks like a vintage WWII sock poster that reads "Our boys need SOX. Knit your bit." It's the knit your bit that got me. LOL
