Because if it doesn’t, I only added one skein of lace weight to my stash yesterday… otherwise….
Saturday night was a Halloween party with friends down Niagara way. I was a pirate and discovered that there are advantages to costume parties with re-enactors, my well used polyester pirate costume was accessorized with C.’s tricorn and gorgeous (but much to large) frock coat – it was pretty cool- though I have no pictures.
Sunday was L’s birthday party, so I drove straight downtown and made a stop at the Purple Purl before going to her place. I needed to pick up some yarn as L is getting a pair of these for her birthday (I even got them started last night…).
And of course while I was there I picked up a couple of other things…
* 2 skeins of Kureyon Sock yarn in brand-spankin’-new colour ways 233 and 240.
* yarn for L’s socks (including two options for CC)
* yarn for these socks for A, for Christmas
* 1 skien of really really pretty and really really soft lace-weight (40%silk, 60% SeaCell – 655m)
* The Knitting Workshop (EZ)
The colourway is Tapestry and the yarn is from Dye-Version, which is nice and local being based in Mississauga
I finished the Fanshaw Socks (*yeah*) -and am even wearing them now…

Notes: This is my go to pattern and yarn for everyday socks. Chalk up another pair. I usually do them with a turned heel because it requires less concentration (and hence can be done while watching tv, in a movie theatre, or when pulled in and out of my purse and requires no counting etc) and I like them…
