knitting and KALs and whatever else is on my mind tonight

I should be finishing some socks but the dang dog ATE my yarn. Don't ask me HOW he managed that one cause I really don't know, all I know is DH and I went out one night knitting bag was on the floor and good sock yarn no where to be found!!!!

I am in a KAL from Ready Set Knit (Web's America's Yarn Store podcast) and frankly it's driving me batty!! I talked to Kathy Elkins today and let her know and she said to let her knwo how it came out. Need to email Pixie if I can't figure it out on Wednesday. Other than that I am working on a Kimono for my mom for Christmas it's the Komon (I think that's the name of it) Kimono in Vicki Square's Knit Kimono book. I have a feeling I'll be making a bunch of kimono's for my friends (or the botanical Medalian Cardi if I get it all figured out). I need to make a stash trip to my LYS to see if Patty has any of the yarn for the kimono it was supposedly being discontinued but i could have sworn I saw it again in the new location. If not I'm SOL!!!!

DH does not know that i placed a key logger on the laptop so that I can check up on him slyly. Hmm that may come up in counseling tomorrow but we'll see.

Off to knit more of the kimono. i wish the patter worked with teh Pure Pima I bought. I may make myself one, out of it, but we'll see.

Sock knitting kick continues.....and my yarn shopping for my stash

I am still on a sock knitting Kick. Thanks to my friend Lori D. I am loving the socks on two circular needles!! I am going to try and get some new sock yarn soon, I am running low.

My first WEBS order came last week, four glorious hanks of Berroco's Pure Pima, I ordered 2 hanks in Curry, 1 hank in Coral and 1 hank in Limelight. My second order from WEBS should come sometime this week. I ordered one of their closeout items, Casade's Sienna in Mint Green. I've been on a green kick lately too, go figure that one out!

I am also hoping my swap package comes this week too. I know who had me in the swap after two days of trying to figure it out, although I have to give the yarn to two of my daughters as I have a sensitivity to the yarn, WAAAAH! I'm sure Deb will come up with some other fabulous items for me to recieve. I am almost done with my box, just need to have get a note together and in the box and off goes it goes to its recipent.

Okay, off to enjoy the cool lake water it's 88 degrees outside and the A/C is NOT working, which is making me rather cranky.
