So I finally have pictures of the RIDICULOUS amount of sock yarn I got from the store. Gotta love getting payed in yarn AND money. I love my job…Anyway, here are pictures!
This is all the yarn. I wasn’t kidding, it’s ridiculous! There are 2 skeins of Noro Kuryon Sock, 5 Skeins Malabrigo Sock, 2 of the new Opal Rain forest (duck and wolf), 1 Harry Potter Opal (Lupin), One Lana Grussa sunset, 2 Lana Grussa cashmere and a little fluffy sheep ornament. Not all of these are for me, but still. CRAZY! My little shelf is still labeled with the post it note “Reasons why Amanda shouldn’t be allowed to work at a yarn store:”. The note even inspires one of the women I work with to make her own little sign. Yay for inspirational post-it notes! Have I mentioned how much I love post-it notes? It’s a little ridiculous, but I adore them. I know, I would.
While I now have a ridiculous amount of new sock yarn, I also finished a pair of socks over the weekend.
Yes, more Noro Kuryon sock yarn. So far I have finished 3 pairs of socks in this yarn, I have 2 more skeins and I may have more on hold…. I mean, WHAT!?!?!? NEVER! What can I say, I’m in love. I don’t think this yarn is going to be part of the sock blanket, though. I have other plans… *coughlogcabinsquarescough*
In other knitting news, so far I’ve finished 5 Christmas presents. The great news? I only have 2 left to knit (that probably won’t be done on time, but oh well. The person that they’re for will understand). I’ve done better this year that any other year. I do have some other presents to get, but the knitting is almost done. Yay! On the other hand, I still have a ridiculous number or projects on the needles. Here’s a picture of the Noro Silk Garden sock yarn scarf.
The scarf is a LOT longer now. It’s so pretty! I’m in love. I’m about half way through the skein. Hopefully I won’t need another one. I’ll know more later…
In other news, I’m waiting to hear about my Teach for America interview. I’m supposed to find out if I made it to the last interview today, so it’s driving me crazy. For now I’m off to knit and watch tv to distract myself. Stay warm!
