And a picture says more than a thousand words...


Nalamienea requested a photo in the comments, and of course I will accomodate that wish! So here is some yarn p0rn for those of you who are so inclined...

Top from the left is the Viking of Norway 30 % milk fiber/70 % cotton, that will probably turn into some kind of socks (I have one more ball), next is the green Drops Eskimo 100 % wool (not superwash) that will become the felted yarn storage unit together with the two other balls of eskimo in the middle row (the pink and the burgundy/purple/red). Next to the green eskimo is the Viking of Norway 100 % milk fiber that might turn into another pair of socks (I now have three balls of this). However, I'm not sure that the socks are very durable, since this yarn is super-soft, so I might have to come up with something else for this yarn. A lacey scarf, perhaps?

On the second row to the left is one ball of Marks&Kattens 100 % Superwash Safir wool, and on the bottom of the picture is the other ball that is allready turning into a pair of fingerless mittens for my husband. I have started on the cuff, as you can see, and the needle shown is also sporting the brand new stitch marker I recieved in the RAK a couple of days ago. Next to the M&K are the two balls of Eskimo, and furthest to the right is the Hjerte Sock yarn in 100 % superwash wool. I am very pleased with all my purchases, and hopefully there won't be too many more this weekend, at the knitting festival in town... Yeah, right...
