This blog is dedicated to my search for the perfect shoes and the perfect yarn.

I finished the knitting on one of my secret xmas projects. Yeah! Those of you on Ravelry can see it. Other than that, I have been knitting on the Harry Potter Scarf I'm knitting for a friend.
It seems like I knit and I knit and I knit and the only way I can tell I'm making any progress is by changing stripes.

Oh, the disappointment...

Got my mail, opened it up...

Oh look, It's a flyer for the New Spinoff. Wonder when it arrives... Oh, wait a second... That's not a flyer. That's the front cover... OMG WHere is the rest of my magazin. I want to read about the "Great Spinning Wheel Roundup." I want to see Handspun Baby Surprise Jackets in honor of the 40th anniversary of the patttern...

I want my Spin-off...

Soooo, I finished a project this weekend, the toomanyrpm socks and you'd think I could go and work on one of my other projects already in process. The special xmas gifts for my niece and nephew, the Nashua Surplice top (too cold already), Lady Eleanor, Cozy, the Clapotis, Tangled Yoke cardigan. Any of the above listed, but not, what do I do???

Cast on new socks in the Opal Harry Potter Yarn. Dumbledore!!!
I totally love these. They don't look like much, but the subtle pattern looks awesome on your foot. I'm love, loving these. Yeah!!

Finally a Finished Object! The Too Many RPM socks are finished.
The socks are two slightly different colors. The one on the left is darker and the one on the right is a lot lighter. But, I still love them. I've been working on them hard core since last weekend...and why you ask???

Because I ordered these and needed the sock needles...
Yes, the Harry Potter sock yarn. I love, love, love it!!! I thought my favorite would be Tonks and Ron would be my favorite when I bought them, but I actually like the Dumbledore best and am going to cast those on immediately. Hurrah!!!
