Long time, no post!

My camera took a foot to the LCD screen (not my fault!), so no pictures yet. However, in the year that I've been knitting, I've moved up from garter-stitch scarves to Norberta, Shelly, the column of leaves scarf, and the multi-directional scarf for just Christmas presents. Hooray!

Knitting resolutions for this year: Knit a sweater, knit at least one sock.

Today, Mom and I drove down to Skippack, PA to hit up Yarnings. It's a 2-hour drive or so, but well worth it. Unfortunately I couldn't find anything to gauge for a sweater, so that'll have to wait. Ah well. BUT, that didn't keep me from getting yarn, especially since the parentals gave me $50 to yarn for Christmas. So, what did I get?

With that $50, I got 2 skeins of Noro Iro in a black/white/pink colorway that I can't identify because when the clerk wound them for me, she took the tags; 3 balls of Schoeller + Stahl Limbo Color in 2539, which is a pretty rainbow-y yarn; 1 ball of Laines du Nord Kiddy Print in color 512 (baby blue); and a $10 grab-bag with a ball of Idéna Kos, one of Wendy/Peter Pan DK, one of Louise Harding Kashmir DK, one of Knit One Crochet Too's PJ's in pink and green, two of Schachenmayr Nomotta Nordica in mint, two of Marks & Kattens' Peluche, and two of Berroco Hush in Paddy Whack.

So, pretty good deal for a $10 bag, and less than $90 spent overall.

I need to wait until I get home to make arm warmers with the Noro, and I have to find something else to make with all the rest of it. Also, socks.

knit so i don't kill people

Once I get past garter-stitch knitting, I think I'm gonna eventually start making socks. Because everyone needs socks.

Also? so much yarn. D:

Also, I saw a flyer for a big knitting and crochet craft fair thingy in Pittsburgh in February, partially sponsored by JoAnn's. You should check it out!
