Twenty-Six of Fifty-Two

Halfway there finally! I can see that I won't make the whole thing, but I at least hoped to make it halfway, so mission accomplished. Any more than this will be gravy. These pair of Quill Lace socks are for me, made with On Your Toes Bamboo. I did them the same as the other ones except I did ten rows of rib at the top and a few more pattern repeats. Started February 13, finished the 20th.
Our sock yarn order finally arrived. I e-mailed the company in the morning shortly after I got to work. Then about two hours later it arrived by courier. We now have three different On Your Toes sock pattern books, On Your Toes DK, more striping On Your Toes 4ply, On Your Toes Bamboo, and some more Austermann Step. It looks nice to look in the yarn room and see the sock yarn cubbies all topped up. To be honest, I hope it sells fast so I can keep ordering more!


This one followed me home. What can I say?

I keep forgetting to post this, but we have a bunch of yarns marked way down. Here's a list and the prices per skein:

There are a few other yarns that we only have a couple of skeins left that are marked way down as well, plus there's always the bin with 25-50% off of odd dye lots and on-ofs. (Any out-of-towners, we can ship! Send me an e-mail to darganknits at hotmail dot com if you want to find out colors/quantities.)

See Jewel's shaved belly? I can tell you, being spayed didn't slow her down any. She came home the next morning as hyper and high-strung as ever. She goes in 10-14 days to get the stitches out. I only see three.
Mmmmmmm, doggie treat! She looks at her dog biscuits the way I look at yarn. She's off to obedience classes starting the 21st with Marti's Hank. They haven't met yet, and I hope they get along since we're taking Marti's vehicle. (Guess they'll have no choice!)
Anyone see the full lunar eclipse last night? We watched it. Well, the start to the peak, then it was bedtime. Past bedtime, actually. I didn't watch the second half. My camera isn't set up for this kinda thing, no tripod or anything. This was taken at the start.

Happy knitting!

Jewel is such a pretty girl! I think they got along well! Hopefully Hank will come out of his shell a little bit as the weeks go by.
