Vaction Knitting & Yarn Shopping

As always, I brought way more yarn than I could possibly work on in the car on vacation. But better too much than not have anyting to do right? I didn't get all that much done because I was too busy bs'ing with Curt, checking out Braun's trucks on 81 (sad yes, very sad.... I need help) Actually saw 2 Walmart trucks that were not sleeper cabs (sadder) only saw 1 Estees truck that was a sleeper, seriously wondered what Stevens Transport hauled, they have such nice looking trucks. Trying to decide which trucks looked like they'd be fun to unload. ( I have issues). Curt was laughing at me for most of that.

But I worked on my next afghan for the Victory Junction Afghan Competition. VJ AFGHAN

Also on Carribean Dream - the StormCloud Shawlette, in Malabrigo sock in Caribeno. stormcloud shawlette

I only got halfway through the heel flap on Dragon's bruises.

I finished the caloriekerchief I was almost done with so I could wear it in Nashville. caloriekerchief2

Curt bought me some MMMalabrigo worsted at Bliss Yarns outside of Nashville. ( I couldn't get a good color shot, the parts that look brown are more of a dark brick red) mmmalabrigo worsted

I got some Happy Feet sock yarn.

Curt thinks I should make another kerchief with the number 14 knit in it, so he got some Tahiki cotton for me to work with. <3 him!

  2. neat yarns, and your knitting looks great, glad you got to do some!!!
