...yup, that pretty much sums it up.
I made a trip down to Salem, MA a few weeks ago and stopped at the local yarn/crack den, Seed Stitch Fine Yarn. Seriously - you cannot leave this place without at least an armful of something.
My mom, whom I'd dragged along for the ride, fell in love with the shop sample of the Soft Drawstring Pouch from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts, done up in festive sparkly things, so of course I loaded up my basket (yarn specifics on rav).
And just like that, despite the onset of a raging case of new year startitis a lone project actually managed to complete itself:
This was a treat to knit - it's a little hard to photograph as the Holo Hoops yarn is pretty ba-blingy, but trust me, it is ever so cute. Those ladies at SSFY are so darn clever.
Also picked up a Pretty Cheep Bag. Tempting as it was to buy all three, I managed to restrain myself. This time, anyway.
Other items on the needles: (hope I'm not jinxing myself by posting them - a pattern seems to be developing whereby the moment I announce that I'm working on such-and-such a project, I immediately lose all interest in it...)
Transitions Yoke Cardigan in its infancy:
Also jumped on the utterly irresistible Thermis Neckwarmer bandwagon:
I found some cute natural-colored wood buttons for the top. This really should be done by now - hopefully I'll be wearing it next week.
And now, for the obligatory Frisky gallery. Here, he models his new "Heart breaker" t-shirt:
And here is proof that here is nothing smaller than a chihuahua on a very cold day. Hope you're staying warm, too ;)
