What a taxing week!

Whew, am I glad that this past week is over. What a busy week at work. I am not looking forward to this week either. At least by the end of this week we should be slowing down. I was exhausted on Friday.

What really made me happy was that I was able to get more Madelinetosh tosh sock from the Loopy Ewe. There went my plan about buying more yarn, but I couldn't resist it. I really love that yarn and I am a sockoholic too. From left to right: Tart, Peony, Bungalow, and Plum tree. Next sock I make will be from this yarn.

I also got two skeins of Online Supersocke 100 Savanne in colors 1033 and 1032. I saw 1032 (bottom color) being knit up by one of my knitting friends and loved it. I found it at Little Knits for half price and couldn't resist that bargain.

I did finish one sock using Mackintosh Iona fingering weight yarn in Misty Highlands. I love this yarn. It is nice and soft and I like how it striped. I plan to cast on for the second sock today.

When I'm done with the second sock, I plan on casting on for another cowl and then after that a sock using the Madelinetosh sock. Maybe I'll do a patterned sock in the tart for Valentines day. It will be late, but I will be ready for next year.

I've heard that sock yarn is not supposed to count! Beautiful yarns.
