SEX-less Birthday–NOT!

You didn’t really think I’d miss out on SEX (stash enhancement expedition) on my birthday did you?Remember last post I said I watch GnomeAcres podcast and Gnome Girl reminded me that I had some yarn I could use for monsters? She also showed some lace weight yarn in The Burrow (as in Harry Potter) colorway that I just had to have to make a sweater.I didn’t mention it in my post because that yarn was MINE MINE MINE!!Her update was at 10 am EDT on Friday and I was stalking. My boss came in the office for something at 9:58 and I hurried him out.  The Burrow is MINE MINE MINE and I might have thrown a skein of worsted weight Witches’ Brew into my cart to make a monster.

I cast on the Trapeze KAL from Nelkin Designs using size 4 US needles and Three Ewes Twisted in Fiber Lamb Silk Lace yarn in Sangria. I worked about 10 rows and have put this piece back into hibernation. I should be able to finish Rockefeller and clue 1 before clue 2 is released on August 24.I thought the yarn for the Trapeze was red but once wound it is actually a cherry pink so the red beads won’t work.I usually order beads but will probably take the project to local supplier and see if I can match this yarn.

I also worked 5 pattern repeats of the Rockefeller.

The mail carrier delivered the Moonshine Fiber Co Crazy Mary fingering weight in Neon Funfetti. When I took the envelope from the box, I noticed that it felt like two skeins of yarn. When I opened it, I learned that I was their 100th sale so I got a free skein of Crunk Sock in That’s What She Said colorway on right in picture. What a nice birthday surprise!I’ve queued shawlettes to be made from both yarns.

Till next time, no frogs, no tinks, just knits.
