We Came, We Saw, We Grabbed

Yeah, so last night was a big SnB yarn swap. It had started out with Ann and me wanting to trade wool for cotton, but it turned out to be a huge event. Want some idea of scope? Here ya go:And this was after several of us had started grabbing and trading already! It was a giant table of yarny and crafty goodness, and some of it spilled over onto another table. I came out pretty good:From left to right: Kauni in fall colorway(Jessi got the other hank of this stuff. I think we both have similar shawl ideas floating around in our heads right now), unknown sock yarns, cottons, lace weight something or another, and some crochet thread.

I was pretty happy needless to say. I also worked on the monkey socks and I'm at the heel flap. I should be turning the heel at lunch SnB today and then I'll be rolling right on down the foot.I'm still trying to debate on what yarn to take with me to ****secret destination**** on Friday too. I'm thinking about a skein of the OnLine sock yarn that DF's mom gave me for Christmas. We'll see what I'm thinking on Thursday night when I pack.

Knit on...

PS: Don't forget, leave a comment during the month of March and you'll be entered up to once per day for some insubordiknit hand-dyed, hand-spun by me yarn!

SB, you were missed! Quite a few people were wondering if you were going to get to come!

Dana, you should organize a swap with your new SnB!

i think we must, with the shawls, that is. i spent like two hours that night pouring over kauni projects in ravelry. i'm thinking something that does a jaywalker-esque zig-zag, after my research.

Jessi, I did the same thing! I'm going to make Kiri out of it, but I'm also leaning towards the falling leaves shawl since I grabbed the autumn colors one.

Kiri is easier though and faster to knit up :oP

Dude, is that the same color of Kauni that *I* have?

BTW, I think figured out what to knit for you guys for your wedding (is that gutsy, to knit for a knitter?):

- a Willie Warmer
- a pair of knitted pasties
- a pair of wrist cuffs
- a vibrator cozy

JUST KIDDING, GRANDMA! ;-D We California folks (NO ONE in California calls it "Cali", just like only New Yorkers call San Francisco "Frisco") are pretty weird....
