I finished crocheting the Hexagon afghan, but had a bit of an incident after washing. Repairs will need to be made but not right now and I don't want to talk about it, so there.
The 52 PairPlunge II started today. The challenge is to make 52 pairs of sock in the next 12 months. I won't make it unless I do lots of kid-sized socks for CIC. My first sock of the challenge year is almost finished--picture to follow later today. Sign-ups are now closed, but you can still play along for fun. This isn't a race, but a personal challenge thing.
I haven'te posted before, but I've been ordering yarn from Eat.Sleep.Knit for several months. I found this online shop from an ad on Ravelry and things haven't been the same for my bank account since. Erin is holding a very clever promotion called the Yarnathon. Yards of yarn purchase are racked up and special little incentives and discounts doled out at set intervals. Erin give great customer service and ships in record time. You can also earn free yarn by linking to her site--but, I would link to Eat.Sleep.Knit even if extra yardage for the marathon wasn't involved.
