Today seemed to be broken up into thirds.  This morning, I got up early and rode the exercise bike since it was cold.  Then I went to work and dealt with the chaos that is the day after returning from vacation.  Finally, I came home and just crashed.  I had every intention of knitting more than three rounds on a sock.  I also had every intention to take pictures of the in progress knitting.  Finally, I had intended to make soup for dinner, but instead put some cream cheese on a piece of bread and sacked out on the couch until finally heading to bed with the kindle.  Three phases of the day.  Three intentions.  I think now it is time for three dreams.

Knit on...

Yarn Aquisitions

While in Florida, I visited a yarn store called Knit! The store was worth the exclamation point as the selection was good and the staff was very friendly. If you are in the Longwood area, check it out. While there, my mom bought me some stitch markers (which you will see soon when I do a WIP update) and a ball of Zauberball in a purple colorway:This will become some sort of a shawl as I find I want the colors of the yarn to be very visible and not hidden on my feet.

For my birthday, I was given a gift certificate to ReBelle, so I headed there today on a mission for new sock yarn. I was organizing my stash to see what I had and was shocked to find just a single skein of Malabrigo sock yarn. In the past year, I have knit through my rather massive stash of sock yarns, which shocked me. So, I picked up three skeins:And last, but not least, my friend went with me to the yarn store and she picked out two skeins of Lamb's Pride Bulky for a hat that I will be knitting for her:So new year, new yarn!
