Yarny Christmas

I asked for yarn for Christmas this year, and yarn I got!

I never buy expensive yarn for myself, so this was a treat. I'm still thinking up options for this, I'm thinking some gloves with the orange Rowan felted tweed, and either Odessa or Esther Williams for the the red or green yarn. I'm still out on the Noro - any suggestions?

I made it safely to New Mexico, where it has been disappointingly cold. I've been staying inside, but not really knitting due to a particularly horrific case of the stomach flu. I haven't had this since I was a kid! I'm slowly working myself up to eating real meals again. The only knitting going on is this sock:

Its Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, left over from ReMango's gorgeous stole. Since I have pretty small feet, I think I'll be able to eek out a decently tall pair of socks from this. Thanks! Although right after I took that picture . . .

The cat that hates everything discovers yarn. Having lived in a previously yarn-free household, I saw her eyes brighten at something else she could attack. A vicious fight ensued, the yarn and me ultimately winning. But its on now cat, its on.

uh oh, does this mean there is some disharmony with the new kitten?

Nice haul! I made some fingerless mitts out of Noro, and they're warm and tough, but it's definitely too scratchy for a scarf. Can't wait to see what you do with it! The socks are coming out great - love that patterning!

P.S. I made a yarn decoy for my kitty... her very own ball of wool, with the end secured so it'll never unravel past a certain point. Safety first, you know :) Keeps her happy and out of my WIPs!

What fun to get some new yarn, especially yarn you didn't have to buy yourself! I think my two kitties need some toys. I tried putting my most recent project in a cute basket, but they've decided it's a game now. So, looks like that's another project!
