Recent FO's

First up is socks! I'm doing my own mystery KAL for this year since I didn't have the money to sign up for Cookie A's sock club. I picked 16 yarns and 16 patterns that were either free or that I already owned and matched them all up in a google doc. When I am ready to start a new pair I use an online number generator or ask someone to pick a random number for me.

This is the first pair I've finished, the pattern in Business Casual and the yarn is The Dandy Doctor from Nerd Girl Yarns. I LOVED knitting this pattern, it was quick and easy but interesting so I just zoomed through and finished them in 12 days!

Next up is a hat! I knit one about a year ago in the same yarn but purple and I LOVED that hat so much, but I lost it :( So here is my replacement. Pattern is Kami Hat and the yarn in Turtle Purl Yarns.

Finally is yet another shawl :) This one was a pain in the butt to knit but the finished product is SO worth it, it's lovely. Pattern is Spring Kerchief and the yarn is Malabrigo Lace.

Going to Montreal!

I'm leaving for a nice romantic getaway with J this weekend in Montreal! So I'm packing and trying to be efficient in my packing so I can bring back some YARN and hopefully a new pair of 'Vogs! I'm bringing a suitcase and an empty backpack. Here's my suitcase :P :

I had to use flash otherwise it looked like a black hole! Those socks are from sock dreams Heavy Metal socks and are my favourite knee highs evar! 

I can't wait to visit the Fluevog store, La Maison Tricotée and some good restaurants! I'll try to take some pictures while I'm there, I always forget.
