Yummy Distractions

Rainy Day Socks

No I'm not referring to the yummy cupcakes. I'm talking about Miss Babs Yummy Sport yarn from Woolgirl! Wow oh wow! I forgot how much I loved this yarn! I cast these on late Thursday night and just wanted to start the pattern. Well, I couldn't put them down! I can't believe how fast these knit up! Woolgirl is doing a Miss Babs contest for Summer of Socks, so if you have some in your stash, this would be the perfect time to knit them up!

Rainy up close

Summer of Socks pair #2
Yarn: Miss Babs Yummy Sport, color Coventry Green
Needles: US 3
Started: July 3
Finished: July 5
Comments: I knit 10 pattern repeats for the cuff instead of 12. I wasn't sure if I would have enough yarn leftover, but I had plenty (0.8 ounces).

Namaste Bag

This package arrived this week too! I splurged and got the new Namaste Newport bag in the Peacock color (love this color!!). In true Woolgirl style, lots of goodies! That box is filled with 20 Eucalan samples!

Yummy Sport

Oh, and because I'm in love with this Yummy yarn (and it bumped me up to the free shipping), I added this to the order. Colorway New York!

February in progress

No more distractions (I hope!). Back to February Rocks!

Happy Knitting!

Mmm I love Miss Babs. I have some in my stash that I need to knit up someday. Your socks look great! And the sweater is looking good!

OK- That sealed it. I ordered a Newport bag from Scout in Charcoal. I was feeling a little guilty about spending the money. NEVERMIND!!! It's perfect!

The February sweater is looking great. But you better hurry! With no job and no test... I'm catching up to you! HAHA!

LOVE those socks. Thanks for the link to the pattern. It's definitely in my queue now.

The sweater is coming along nicely. I may have to think about making one for myself. I've seen so many on the Net and it'q quickly becoming a favorite.
