On wonderful husbands and current projects...

This is the gift my husband surprised me with recently... aren't they beautiful? They are the new Knit Picks Harmony wood straits set. I was so excited. :-) He is certainly worth all the trouble... sometimes!

















Here is a whole mess of chinese waves dishcloths I have been making. Nice to have the instant gratification of a quick project





















This is my current pair of socks. I did (amazingly) finish the Dublin bay socks in time for my Mother in law's birthday. She really seemed to love them. I did, however forget to get a picture. Darn it. Just imagine an absolutely prefect pair of hand knit socks. Most beautiful you have ever seen. Trust me, they look just like that.


















These next few yarns I picked up at I Knit Day in Lodon at the beginning of this month. (where I got to hear Stephanie Pearl-McPhee speak. (SOO much fun- she is hilarious!)
This first one will be my next pair of socks.....














This next one is going to be My-So-Called-Scarf. I would be further along, but oh-so-sadly, Elena jumped on my really-pretty-and-nearly-brand-new-harmony wood- needle and broke it in half. Sigh. So, when my replacement pair come in I will knit like mad on this wonderful silk blend wool.
ps- I didn't kill her. Pretty good restraint, huh?

Those needles are *so* pretty! I can't believe one got broken so quickly! That must have been frustrating! But, I'm glad you didn't hurt anyone :) I love the My So Called scarf. I've thought many times about starting one, but haven't. I'm really interested to see it goes for you.

Cool Tina!! Love all the pictures and I can just imagine the perfect sock. I'll *love* opening it on Christmas this year.

What beautiful yarn for your new scarf! I think your needles are very pretty, isn't it nice to have husbands who get you really useful and much desired things?! Can't wait to see your pictures of your socks and scarf!
