I received my shipment from Little Knits yesterday. After I oooohhhh'ed and aahhhhhh'ed over the Noro, I decided I *had* to knit something with it. I checked out Ravelry for some quick patterns. About three hours later I had this! It fits my husband perfectly (but my 5 year old is modeling it.) I have 3 more balls of it. I may make more of this hat, but I have a few other patterns I'd like to try.
I've also been working on these super bright socks. I saw this Astra yarn in the isle at Joann's and I bought it on a whim. I figured I make socks. I mean, you can never have too many socks, right? I cast on on Saturday and I just couldn't stop smiling. I just love how the colors are working up. So darn cute!
And I'm nearing completion of my second Mr Greenjeans sweater. I only have one sleeve and the button band to complete, but I've run out of steam. I should know better then to make the same sweater twice in the span of a month. I do love it, but I'm just a wee bit sick of it. I'm hoping that by taking the breaks to knit the hat and socks I can recharge and finish it soon.
