Oh Great

On a night when I really, really wanted to get to bed early, the across the street neighbors are having one of their blast-the-music-until-it-rattles-the-windows parties.

And I can't even sleep in tomorrow, because I've got library duty at the church. Sigh...

This is my life.

I guess I should look on the bright side. At least they play good music, not that old rap crap.

On the other bright side, I got new yarn in the mail yesterday! This is Aloft, Knit Picks version of Kidsilk Haze.

It's basically the same fiber content, at about half the price.  The green is called Tranquil, and the pink is called Blush.   

The other yarn I got is this Imagination, in Wild West. I'm not that thrilled with this yarn for socks, but it does make good scarves and hats and things. And I loved this colorway.

I was good this time. I only got these few yarns. I'm really trying to knit from my stash, as it's beginning to take over the house. The other things I got were some new needle tips, and look! A darning egg.

Now I don't have to use an old lightbulb to darn my socks any more.

As a bonus, here is Onyx doing his best Midgard Serpent impression.  

Now, since it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to get to sleep anytime soon, I think I'll go look through my lace books, and see if I can come up with something to knit with my new yarn.

Oooh, Aloft looks very yummy. I have ideas in the back of my mind for just that kind of yarn, but I have so many other things to do first!! Can't wait to see what lacy goodness you come up with!

Oh, it is! Very soft and fuzzy. It passed the cheek test with flying colors. I'm still debating on what to do with it, though. Like you, I have so many other things I need to finish first.
