I lied.

I actually have 5 socks on the needles, who knew?! I have two in the heel stage, and three that I started this week. I guess I fail in the UFO category, right? At least the three new ones are all stockinette and so I’m getting there quickly with a few of them. Add in TV watching and I’m doing pretty good. I can’t always knit on the treadmill, but when I start it keeps me on that much longer so it’s good for my overall calorie count, I hope. I’ve also knit on the cross country machine at the gym, but I almost fell off due to losing my balance, so that’s not as often as the treadmill.

In the interest of full disclosure, I also have some more news to report – this week I received two more swap packages (thank you Destash and Good Yarn Karma!) The first was from Kimberly who sent me the most gorgeous red and black yarn. I love it so much!

and I even tried to do some “pr0n” shots of this yarn, it is so gorgeous, but I’m not much of a photographer.

3 skeins of Crystal Palace Kid Merino

2 skeins of Italian lace yarn

4 skeins of Tahki New Tweed. Honestly these yarns are so soft and gorgeous! Stash accounted for: 115 skeins.

    Sorry I have not thanked you for the Noro Lily. Stephanie’s book launch made me incredibly busy!! I love the Noro Lily — the colors are what I have been look for. Glad you like the yarn.
    Bunny hugs,
