KC Stuff

(Okay, I can't get Blogger to put the pictures where I want them to go - shocker - so the first picture is the swag and the other one
is what I bought.....)

This is my swag bag from KC. So much fun stuff! Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light and Pure Merino Heather, both in purple, Kraemer Yarns brushed mohair (with some sparkly stuff in it - not too sure about it), Lang Yarns West wool/acrylic blend, Claudia Hand Painted merino wool in Strawberry Latte, and Univeral Summer Linen in a green apple color. Awesome.

Next up is what I bought at the yarn market, where I brought the little girl, who did not exactly enjoy herself. Although, it may have been a good thing because I probably would have spent WAY too much money. Anyway, this is Blue Ridge Yarns, and the colorway is Mossy Hollow. Gor-gee-ous! Don't know what I'll make with it - maybe socks, maybe not. What else can you knit with sock weight merino? I don't really know, and feel like a dork because I don't, but I just don't. Any suggestions from the like, four of you who read this? I'd appreciate it.

You can make scarves, shawls and I have even made hats from sock weight merino. Recently made ipod bags (knitted bag from front cover of Knitted Gifts)
