Teal and Rainbow Brite

I still cannot post about an FO although there is a progress bar on the right side of my blog that says 100%! It's coming...

Last night, I went to Effiloché to knit. Usually, I go knit at Effiloché when I need some yarn. Now, at the moment, I have a few projects aligned and I have all the necessary material. I'm probably the only proud knitter without a stash ;-) But I know I love sock yarn and tiny needles, so I can definitely see myself knitting many many pairs of socks in the future!

So here is my new acquisition:

What will it become? Probably socks. It is Tanis Fiber Arts Blue Label Fingering Weight yarn. Blue is my favorite color so when I saw this skein in teal, I knew it had to be mine!

I have to confess that I sort of wonder if it's normal to be filled with joy just by looking at it? ;-)

Now, I may not have any FO to show, but Kara sure do (see previous post)! I can't believe how fast Kara knit this beautiful hat! Isn't it the perfect hat for this time of the year? That reminds me that I better get back to knitting my own hat for our knitting group exchange that's coming soon...

Have a great weekend everyone!

It's Tanis, sweetie. Getting a happy when looking at it is perfectly normal. I'd fear you were dead inside if you didn't ;)
