Yarn Porn and FOs and....it's FRIDAY!

Since it's Friday (and I actually remembered that it is!) I'm going to have to do some Feastin'...

Friday's Feast #117

Appetizer
Create a new candle scent.
Fresh Lemon Rain

Soup
Name one way you show affection to others.
Hug

Salad
What is your favorite writing instrument?
Fine Tipped Ball Point Pen

Main Course
If you were given $25 to spend anywhere online, from which site would you buy?
DivaKnitting.com, of course

Dessert
Are you dressing up for Halloween? Nope
If so, what are you going to be? If I were I think that I would have to be a Spoiled Knitter...no, no, that's my everyday appearance!

Okay, we are done with the Feastin', now onto the Knittin'
Well, I've been keeping you informed about the Almost Life and Times of WIP Sock. I am now HAPPY to let you know that WIP Sock is all grown up! He and his Brother have been having a blast today! I snuck up on them today and got a couple of photos... I caught them tree climbing, you see the younger Sock Brother is behind a bit, but Older Sock would stop and wait for the Younger, so sweet to watch! Then, after they played and played I found them sleeping......side by side!

I'm also happy to inform you that I've finished Rusted Root for my sister. This was a very fun knit, I will definitely be knitting another. The girls at Zephyr Style did a fabulous job on this pattern, too...very, very well written!

I also cast on the beginnings of "A Touch of Whimsy" fingerless gloves. I hope that these will be a fast knit because I want to knit the socks, I think they will be very cute! Then, I will be done with the "A Touch of Whimsy" designs. I won't be done knitting them, though...I still have to knit my scarf! Since there's lace in these designs they will be included as part of my Lacevember projects. I do hope that I will have time to at least begin the Vogue shawl during Lacevember! I don't know, though, I seem to keep decided that I want another project in this Whimsy series!

OH, BABY!! I almost forgot the yarn porn!! I can't very well be doing that, now can I?! Today I received the yummy Cash Iroha (fiber Content: 40% Silk, 30% Lambswool, 20% Cashmere, 10% Nylon...gotta love that!) that I ordered from Little Knits (I must say, there's sure nothing little about a bag of Cash Iroha!) I do believe that it wants to be the cape from Vogue Knitty Holiday (under Grace, the white cape!). I'm not 100% sure, but I do love this yarn and I do love that cape! Now, where I would actually wear a cape I don't know...but doesn't it sound great! You know, the Spoiled Knitter needs a cape!!

Rusted root is gorgeous! Is the lace pattern really open? I've been wanting to make this, but I'm assuming that you have to wear something underneath, right?

Your new yarn is yummy, yummy. As are the socks.

I really enjoy your Friday feast posts...thanks for sharing!

The re-incarnation of Rusted roots is great! Looks wonderful.

Love the sock color! They look lovely and comfy!

spoiled knitter. *laugsh* that's priceless, I'll have to tell my Mom that's what I'm as, since she thinks I should dress up.

Rusted Root is beautiful! Perfect - well done. I CO for mine but was put off by the K3tog/P3tog - especially when they caused a hole in my finger! x
