Stash Acquisition Saturday

Ha, another one! Two weeks in a row!  This one I blame on a gift.  I had to buy some yarn for a gift, so bought some for myself.....BUT......I was given the wrong information....and had to buy different yarn...sigh.....but I have more coming in the mailllll

the wrong yarn...
Kauni...here's a picture from the website, the Loopy Ewe


The yarn is a gradient....however the recipient likes purple, not pink.....it's okay, I can use this....but...sigh.....

So I poked around on the site and ordered a few things for myself....
Not sure I can handle the opposite stripes....I want to be able to....but I'm a matchy-matchy person and these might make me nuts....we'll see......the colors are Peacock Blue and Chartreuse

I've been dying for an oxblood red and saw this Dream in Color Fierce Scarlet...yum!

Think I'm going to pair it with this....
YUM!  Tumbleweed Yarn in Glo Worm....this yarn is super soft!!!!!

And my husband bought me a gift....

Because my yarn goes into bags before being packed away......such a sweetie....

So how about you? Any latest stash acquisition? Please link up....

Stitch Along Wednesday: Week 37

Good Tuesday evening!

I have projects I have worked on, but forgot to take update pictures and it's too dark now and I'm too tired to try to move lights around, etc...

Been having some health issues....the upswing is that I've been diagnosed with the beginnings of rheumatoid arthritis....it could be many years before I have it full blown...or I may never develop it full blown, but it is nice to have a plan, and the pain is now being managed.  For the past year, I have been in almost constant pain.  Last summer I climbed a mountain in Norway, this summer I couldn't climb stairs...that is how fast it came on....I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis several years ago, so I've always had some flare-ups, but this year it got very bad....so I go back for a re-eval in three months to see how I'm doing and to run some more tests....and oh, yeah...today I went to my primary doctor and I have a sinus infection.....I had a double ear infection 4 weeks ago, and an injured toe that needed to be dealt with...so I'm ready to try being healthy now....

I have knitted off and on...and a box of yarn came in the mail today.....but I'm just too tired and feeling crappy right now...so hopefully by the weekend....

oh...and it's 25 years with this goofball....

Stash Acquisition Saturday

Oh my...the other day, I was having a "poor me" day and I really wanted to yarn shop...I did not, but the next day, low and behold, I had a mailbox full!

LB Art Yarn is pulling her Walking Dead inspired yarns for awhile, so I had to order some...and I'd forgotten that I had!

So the top is Maggie, then Terminus, then Mutha-Effing Carol and I Heart Dirty Daryl.....yeah...Mutha-Effing Carol and I Heart Dirty Daryl will be a big ole shawl....
Then I received my Random Fandom from Nerd Girl....it is now that Knit Night hat...
My two MadColor clubs.....BAMF is Arya this month...
An Elegant Weapon from A Galaxy Far, Far Away
And I bought a Socktober yarn..(I have another version coming from a different dyer)
This is Ghost World from MarigoldJen
My friend Maureen came back from London with some gifts for me!!!!!
She got the same Wollmeise....but she is a much faster knitter than I am!

Cornbread and Honey's August Yarn of the month...

EatKnitDye...It's Not Easy Eating Greens!

This morning I got up to order some yarn for a wedding gift and ordered a few more things for me....;/....so those will be coming in soon....

So, I believe those are the only ones that have been hanging around....who knows though?

So if you'd like to play, please link up...thanks!

Wrap-Up Friday

Hi ho!  So I have not done one of these in two weeks...so sorry..I wasn't getting a ton of links, so I think I'll do one every other week...we'll see how it goes...if I don't get links, I'll just drop that feature...I know lots of people post when they finish a project, so they may not link up...

I did finish a project this week...I finished a Knit Night Hat...
I love the brim of this hat!  The yarn was a Nerd Girl Random Fandom I received this week....it is inspired by Stranger Things...I just liked the blues in it...never seen the show....will, just haven't as I don't have Netflix....

So what about you?  What have you finished lately? Please link back, thanks!

Stitch Along Wednesday: Week 36

Hello my friends!

So over the long weekend, I started and completed a project.....I'll post it on Friday....I haven't posted a Wrap-up Friday in two weeks....1. Because I haven't had anything...and 2. because haven't gotten many linkups....so I may only do them every two weeks....

I was so happy to be able to sit and craft this weekend....I got out and did some other things, but I really wanted to craft and the Hubs was painting all weekend...He has two friends selling their house, so he's helping out.....

I also read...I just finished this tonight (Tuesday)....
It was good....her first book.....although it dragged a bit in the middle, good concept...liked the character.....

And those are my Glenn Lives socks...finished sock 1, cast on sock 2...sorry so dark....it's late and I didn't feel like getting the big light plugged in....I also put in a couple rows of my Reyna and a couple rows here and there on a few other projects....

How about you?  What did you do over the long holiday if you are in the US?  What about elsewhere?  As always, please link back...thanks!
