The Good and the Annoying

Well the good thing that happened today is that the mailman/FedEx delivered my new yarn and knitting books today. What makes it even better is the fact that there were two different orders, one from knitpicks and one from webs and they both came today!

This is the yarn from webs. It is fibranatura and the colorway is wild lime. I got because I plan on making the Gemini  short-sleeved sweater from Jane Richmond this may and the yarn was on sale so I couldn’t help myself.

This is the yarn I got from Knitpicks. It is from there city tweed collection and the colorway colbalt

I got this yarn because I really liked and wanted to make the Emily Raglan by Lacie Lynnae,, this was the yarn it called for, and they also had sales on books so I got free shipping that way.

Now on to the annoying part I decided to be a good little knitter and block all of my most recent finished objects that were for myself. I am really bad about blocking. Like I never do it, unless there is seaming involved or the shape came out really wonky. But I have been reading a lot of blogs and I have been hearing about all of the benefits of blocking which has started me thinking so I decided I would turn over a new leaf with the new year and block all of my projects. So here is what my dinning room looks like since I decided to block tonight. And yes I have worn at least all of these projects at least once already, and some of these are clear from September.

In this picture starting from the top you can see my rae, my raglan, my welted cowl, my holden shawlette, my bohemian hat, and my lovely leaves slouch hat.

Here's my boyfriend cardigan and a shot of the eucalan soap and t-pins I used.

All in all today has been a great day in the world of yarn and knitting for me! I really hope that my raglan dries fast though because it is cold out and I would love to wear it to work tomorrow.
