Picture Time Again!

Just pictures today!
This grab bag of yarn will be a lion scarf for Fry. While posting to the Sit, Sip, and Knit group, I had the idea to freeform a small lion with bead eyes into the scarf. Fry will love it!

This is the first Koigu yarn I've ever bought. Can you believe it? I'm thinking of ways to combine these into a pair of socks. Not good now, but you'll see. It'll be great, or interesting at least.

Here is a bunch of scrumbles (swatches in various sizes) sewn together. There's a few more out there for me to assemble.

And a lot more to knit up.

If I run out of what I bought or brought to the retreat, there's a whole bunch more waiting downstairs.

A whole lot more.

Here's the yarn, or some of it, I'm using in Jane Thornley's current knitalong. Yes, I had to get a grab bag of yarn at the retreat. You know, just in case.

So here's the current work in progress. The sun came out and flooded the item with a bit too much light for the camera to handle.

I also had to pick up what was left of the Indian yarn from Himalaya. No one wanted these, so I had to take them home. Fry loves the colors already, which is good, because I'm making a sweater or vest for her out of this.

Here's a group photo of the yarns I brought back.

On my to-do list, I still have the stained glass socks in Cascade Fixation to finish, my purple cardigan, a Sirdar Snowflake blanket or sweater (it's a do-over), the grey sweater do-over, Goopa's legwarmers, Knit Your Cabin Cove project, the final entrelac sock, finish swatch of sweater for my Dad, Claude's bed, and a list of other projects planned but not started. I have the yarn and patterns, but can't knit fast enough. :)

Nice blog color! I took the color test and found that I am purple.

Thanks for sharing all the pictures. I love pictures of yarn. Hahaha! You are the provider of YarnPorn. Hope that doesn't offend...

I read your posts yesterday but was so in awe of all the yarn that I was unable to type! You've really got a lot of great yarn there and I look forward to seeing it grow up *G*

LOL! Oh no! I just now changed it to something less bright. Sorry, Camie. I do love a creamy yellow color and may change it back at a moment's notice.

Sadly, yes, I seem to be a pusher of yarn. Sometimes, I feel almost bad teaching classes and then telling them where to get the good stuff. :D

Thanks, Susan! Me too! I just don't knit fast enough to suit myself.
