Ham, I am

Gearing up for Easter!! If you're not ready, call Oscar's Smokehouse.

You're only three days away from the ham of a lifetime.

Socks knit using MagicLoop. Loving it.

You can learn too. Thanks, Tiennie, for the tip!

The socks pictured are for Hugo, big bro to Baby Ares whose finished socks have been delivered. Hopefully his Mama will email me a pic of him wearing them b/c in my BBQ induced fog I forgot to document.

Basically they look like these, finished, smaller.

This yarn is the KnitPicks Dancing which, apparently, is discontinued. Why?!?!? It's such a great consistency and wears beautifully. Get it while you can, folks.

Another finished beret. Thank God...

...because the Koigu berets are causing me some grief. Need some more yarn (and yes, I did swatch this! and yes, I'm knitting to gauge!) The pattern called for one skein. Humpf.

While in Austin, visited Hill Country Weavers.

SO much yarn!!! I took a couple things off their hands (I'm a giver that way) ;-)

Colinette Yarns Jitterbug 100% merino easy care in Toscana.

Might make a good toque for 10%! Anyone have pattern advice?

Be Sweet Extra Fine Mohair. A great yarn supporting a great job creation program. Check it out!

And yes, this will become a beret. I just can't help myself.

Stay tuned for a KAL announcement. You know you want to.
Because you just don't have enough to do! :-)

I'm just knitting a tiny weeny red balnket for Gwenny's dolls house. I only know basic knit stich, and then I'm continously dropping stiches. Unfortunately those little dollies will have to put up with 100% acrylic !!!

Great yarns! I'm on a yarn diet and yours looks so yummy.
