I'm totally with you on the yarn, earthchick. It's my new favorite yarn - I just don't want to stop touching it! It smells slightly vinegary, but I'll need to wash the clapotis to block it so I'm hoping it'll fade. Mine is violetas!

It's soooooooo soft too! And the stitch definition is amazing as well. I never want to knit with anything else again.

This is why I'm so impatient to start!

i stopped my lace shawl because i decided to go with alpaca cloud instead of shadow and i'm awaiting its arrival. assuming i get it before the 10th, is my first attempt at lace (besides playing with shadow, i'm actually pretty comfy with it now) a ridiculous idea for this event? i want to participate, but that's the next slated project besides the baby blanket i'm in the midst of. thanks!

I'm doing The Knitting Fiend's Sockulator V toe up socks. These will be the first pair of socks that I will have made toe up and with heel flaps. And I'm making them for me. I've already swatched and I'm doing them in KP Simple Stripes in Snapdragon on a US 1. Friday can not come soon enough!

I'm doing Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Awareness Socks from the Knitting Pattern a Day Calendar. The challenge will be following a chart (I hate charts LOL!) and finishing both socks in 16 days. I've got my gauge done and needles, yarn, stitch markers, scissors, measuring tape and pattern all in my knitting box. It's T-3 days and counting!

I can not believe that it is almost time to start the KO! I will be joining in knitting a purse for my daughter. Pink, her name in purple, and a clasp with a special button. I can not wait to get started!
