Not Destashing

Still not getting much knitting done. Puppies are a handful, especially this one! Here is a picture of the dishcloth I am knitting. Its a pattern from the Yahoo Monthly Dishcloth KAL group.

I am also knitting a scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. It's called the Chevron Scarf and you use two different color yarns. I am using Socks that Rock Farmhouse and Watermelon Tourmaline. This is the first time I am knitting with two different colors at the same time.
What I am really excited about was being able to purchase yarn from the Yarn Pirate. I had signed up for her mailing list for any notifications. She was stocking her Etsy shop this past Saturday. The yarn went fast and I didn't think I was going to get any, but much to my surprise I was able to buy the following skeins below:
1 skein of Paris:
Yarn Pirate - Paris
2 skeins of Dogwood:
Yarn Pirate - Dogwood
3 skeins of Cannon Beach:
Yarn Pirate -Cannon Beach
I had to be really quick on getting them into my cart and making sure they were all mine. Now, I can't wait until they get here so I can figure out what I will make with them. I am still dreaming of getting the following two colors:
Yarn Pirate - crocus
Yarn Pirate - Sonoma
I'll either have to be quick to get them or see if I can special order them. Glad I'm not destashing. I am a Yarn slut!

Frogging Away - Rip it, Rip it, Rip it

Well, Maggie May is a ball of fire. She sure keeps me hopping! She's not quite three months old and already she has attempted going down steps. We had three other dogs and I had to teach them how to go down steps! I don't think she fears anything, although the other day she got her head stuck between the back of the desk and the wall and started screaming. I did get her out and the good news is that she doesn't go under the desk and chew on any wires that are there anymore. Hmmm, now if I could just get her to stop chewing my bedroom slippers.

I have been knitting more. I am currently working on the February mid-month dishcloth KAL (I know, I'm a little behind) from my monthly dishcloth group. I really like the pattern, but I keep messing up one row and having to frog it. I come up one stitch short and I know it's the yarn over's. You would think that I would get it by now.

I got my Socks that Rock yarn and started the chevron scarf. This is the first time I am knitting something where you change yarn colors. I also got the first installment of the Socks that Rock Club for this year. Really nice notebook and yarn came this time. I will post pictures next time I write.

I am also working on the Candle Flame Shawl from knitpicks. I had to frog that all the way back because I messed up and didn't know where. At least it was towards the begginning and not further along. There seems to be a pattern here with having to frog so much.
