Stitch Along Week 11

Good morning!  I am actually doing this on Wednesday morning!  Late Wednesday morning...as we have a snow day today!
That's the snow plow guy...we don't do our driveway....

So I stayed up reading until 2 in the morning and slept in this morning.....I do need to apologize for last week....I did apologize on my Friday post.....just wasn't happening on Wednesday......

So onto projects...I have been having a bit of ADD when it comes to projects...just not happy with things....

I ripped out the beginning of these socks and will be making the Abide Shawl from Drop Dead Easy Knits.  I bought the book at Rhinebeck and it is signed by the three authors!  My husband said the colors were too pretty to hide in shoes...awww......

Next up...
P_ssyhat for a friend...almost to the second ribbing section.....

Next up....
The cowl of the crochet poncho, Cowl Neck Poncho

See this?  It was going to be a red, white and blue p_ssyhat...I was going to felt it...yeah I didn't read the tag well enough it was superwash BFL....so no felting happened...
It's a mess!  Not sure what I can do with it.....but I had a small ball left so....
With some left over white Valley Yarns...this will be another one.....

So how about you?  What have you got going lately?  Please share and link up...thanks!

Tea on Tuesday

So on Saturday I tried a new one and renewed an older one....

The Tea of Life is a black tea...this was gifted to me when I was unwell....It is an "energy" blend....the flavors are black tea, Moringa leaves, ginseng pieces, Guarana pieces, Linden blossom, lemon balm and ginger pieces.  I do not have a discerning tongue...so I can't pick out individual flavors....and I've never heard of Moringa or Guarana before...it was a mellow tea, but there was a bit of an aftertaste...it wasn't unpleasant...wanting to be bitter, but not quite there....definitely a tea I'll drink again....

and I revisited Twinings Irish Breakfast....which is a good substitute for my regular Red Rose black tea...

Stash Acquistion Saturday

So I apologize for not posting a Wednesday WIP link up....no excuses...I thought about it....I was just too tired to bother....I am finding with this disease that I have days of pure exhaustion.....I came home this previous Monday and ate some dinner and then slept for 11 hours!!!!!  I was still exhausted when I woke up...by Wednesday I was feeling okay, not quite as tired.....but it's tough...by 12:30...all I want to do is nap...and I have to teach math at that time...not my best subject...:(

So on to the stashes (my precious!)....I just checked Ravelry and haven't updated my stash since December!!!!  Will be doing that too......

Abi Grasso yarn.....I've admired her yarn for ages.....this one is simple...bacon and eggs!!!!  I do have bacon yarn from another dyer that I have used....so can't wait to try this one....

She also had this beautiful "Grainbow" yarn I had to try....

She also included an egg full of little surprises...I must admit I love when indie dyers/LYS send you little surprises with your order...
So see that little sheep stitch marker?  I had earrings made out of those same charms and promptly lost one!  I am having another set made, as I really love the charm!

Nerd Girl Random Fandom...Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde....what a throwback!

MadColor...Not My Daughter, You B*tch! (Molly Weasley) for BAFM club!  I'm not "in love" with it, but it is Molly Weasley...speaking of which, yesterday was Professor Lupin's birthday.....so I was on the search for Lupin yarn...I did order some...along with some Neville.....and Heather (MadColor) and I discussed her making a Lupin yarn in a tweed!  so that might be coming out!.....

I think this might be all.....right now I have yarn everywhere.....and I am trying to be good....as I have CT Sheep and Wool AND Stitches United coming up in April and then Mass Sheep and Wool in May.....I think NH Sheep and Wool is coming up too.....yep, that's also in May!!!!

then it's smaller events until the fall......

Do you have stash to share?
