New Yarn And A Bit Of Knitting

What an AWESOME Knit Night I had last night!!! Despite the terrible rain we had a GREAT crowd....check us out. A GREAT group of women.....we have WAAYYYYY too much fun!!!! LOL!!!

Suzanne and I had pre-arranged a little trade for some sock yarn....but in essence, I pretty much snatched this from her!!! LOL!! We are SOOO good/bad for each other!!! LOL!!!

This yarn is incredibly soft, the colors are so soothing....and I can't wait to get started on a pair of socks!!!

I have finished one sock and almost finished with the second one.....haven't even woven in the ends of the yarn on this one in case you noticed at the top but wanted to get a picture posted.....this is after all a knitting blog...guess I should post some knitting!!

Just a K3, P1 rib, magic loop, STR Titania yarn from my stash.

I do have other knitting completed....just not photographed.
I finally knit something with some of the yarn I spun. A short ruffled scarf, worn closed at the neck with a shawl pin. I will try to get a picture of this and other knitting and post later.

I just started my first Noro sock and looking forward to getting far enough along to show the beautiful color changes. This yarn IS a bit rough feeling but everyone that has knit with it tells me once it is soaked it is very soft!!
