Spring is coming!

It's getting warmer outside and the snow is melting. I am so glad. It really feels as if Spring is around the corner. I am even hearing the birds singing.

I have been knitting on the spiral cowl. I am close to finishing that, but did start on a new pair of socks called Dancing Bamboo socks. I am using Madelinetosh sock in the ginger colorway with size 1.5 needles. I am really liking the pattern and will have pictures on the next blog post.

I caved in and bought some more sock yarn from the Loopy Ewe. Honestly, that online store is my downfall. I was able to get some Numma Numma toasty, which I have really wanted. From left to right is: Olive Oil with Peppercorns, Fluffernutter and Jam, Grape Jam and olive Oil. The colors are really better in person.

I also caved in and bought two skeins of Huckleberry yarns in the colorway Eight Bells and Queen of Hearts as well as more Madelinetosh dk in the colorway Logwood and Cherry.

I really need to reorganize my yarn stash. Maybe once tax season is over I will be able to do that.

Oh, and I couldn't resist getting two alpacas and a sheep from the Knitter's Edge. Aren't they cute?

Alpacas and Sheep

They are much easier to take care of than real live animals.
