I finished these socks in the Noro Sock Yarn...yes they went fast! I guess I could have made them as a matched pair but that didn't seem to be in the cards. I like how they look though...they are certainly matched enough for me.
I spent much of this morning digging into the yarn/guest room, and did a good job of getting a lot of stuff thrown out and a lot of yarn organized. I'm pretty pleased with myself. I've also written two pieces for my professional project, the site www.grabbinggreen.com which is an advertising and marketing site for small business.
And finally...look what I won! During BSG weekend, the local alpaca ranches sponsor an alpaca show. We always visit it since I love the alpaca (and am formulating an evil plan to get my own...more on that later). There is generally a raffle, which I generally enter, and generally lose. Well, not this year! I won 875 yards of Suri Alpaca laceweight and a pattern. The laceweight is, not surprisingly, incredibly soft, and is plenty for a lovely scarf or maybe even a shawl...maybe with beads? Love me the beads.
