Socks and yarn in the mail!

Today I went to Bazaar Bizarre where I met up with Alexis and Bryghtrose and saw Shannon Okey. I was amazingly well behaved and didn't buy any sock yarn even though there was one from Skeintily Clad that I really wanted.

In fact I only bought one thing - the Spin to Knit book! Shannon was nice enough to sign it for me and wrote "reminder: do not sell this for sock yarn" which is a very good reminder for me. ;)

Alexis headed off to meet a friend and Bryghtrose and I headed up to Newbury St. where I completed 1/3 of my holiday shopping. Then we headed out to my neighborhood and went to my apartment to drop our purchases off before dinner. There we found this:

The last package from the 2006 Rockin' Sock Club! When I pulled out the first bag containing the two skeins of Leticia (in Rooster Rock) I was a bit confused because it clearly is not sock yarn. After reading the newsletter I found it was because I won their contest!

The red skein on the left - "Mustang Sally" - is the December color, and the one next to it is our bonus skein - "Rare Gems" - which are all unique. I love the colors in mine, which is mediumweight.

In other knitting news:

Sock pair #42 is a pair of kids socks for Dulaan made with leftovers from the Jaywalkers

Started: 12/10/06
Finished: 12/15/06

Sock pair #43

Pattern: Dublin Bay
Yarn: Trekking 07
Started: 12/11/06
Finished: 12/16/06

And last but certainly not least, the STR in Carbon I won in a contest on Sheep Geek.

It's going to help me accumulate enough sock yarn to knit though the apocalypse.

Yay, I finally get to see what was sent. Mine's not here yet. Congrats on winning. The Dulaan socks are cute and that carbon is going to make awesome socks too!

I bought some Skeintily Clad sock yarn. It's called "The Greener Side" and is in colors of green anoles -- I just *had* to!!! I'm hoping to cast on later this week. It'll be a whopping #4 pair of socks for this year. :-)
