Another addiction . . .

Being in Connecticut has its perks.  I'm two hours from Boston, and I'm two hours from NYC.  Well, last week, I met a friend in the city for the day, but before his flight came in, I took myself to Purl Soho.  I was there at least an  hour coveting all their gorgeous yarn.  And their selection of Liberty of London fabrics was A-mazing.  If you have a chance to go, you should.

I was good and only bought two skeins of yarn.  In my signature color, of course.

But I'll be back for more.  Don't you worry about that.  ;)

Before I can break into those beautiful balls of yarn, I should really finish this lovely.  Alpaca -- so soft.

And I should finish these socks.  I actually am doing toe-up two-at-a-time socks for the first time.  I have already taken one pair of partials off of this circular needle.  I know once I get the hang of it, I'll be glad I learned how, but right now, I am less than motivated to work with these, because the cables on the circular needles flip all over the place and are in the way.
Luckily, it's summer right now, so it's too hot for these socks.  I have some time to get over my frustration and soldier on.

Anybody knitting anything this summer?  No?  Just me?

I tried really hard to knit. I was really bad at it and decided I didn't have the patience for it. But I kept the needles just in case. ;)

I crocheted 20 fish washcloths last summer. I am still on hiatus from that.
