So you want some knitting content eh?
Ok…no more bats and slippers.
I have a FO! The Pinwheel Blankie is done.
Up close and personal.
The cotton is SO soft and I really like how the colors knit together. The colors are a bit brighter in real life…damn this camera. But the gentle mottled effect reminds me of a Monet painting. It’s about 44″ from side to side. Not sure who it’s destined for yet.

And I went shopping over the weekend. I couldn’t help it! LittleKnits had a sale!!! Fulay Sue is the sweetest woman. Despite the horrendous heat, a downed internet connection and crazy random patrons, she managed to be funny and helpful. I came with a list and left with a few extra things…of course.
8 skeins of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock (I can’t help myself. I need help, I know.)
4 skeins of Schaefer Laurel (100% Mercerized Pima Cotton). This was the unplanned buy. I was shocked at how silky soft and smooth this fiber is. And the colors are…are…amazing. My pics don’t show them off properly. Damn this camera!!! Considering I saved like 30% off retail on all of this stuff, I’m managing to control my shopper’s guilt.
Finally – I stopped at Barnes and Noble and found an AWESOME surprise for my soon-to-be Secret Pal. I can’t show you…but it’s really really neat. And it’s pink. That’s all I’m gonna say.
