Progress, purchases & a favorite bag

After a fair amount of tinking (for some reason I kept dropping YOs), I have finished Clue 3. I am enjoying this KAL so much that I ordered Hanami and Spring Tootsies from Melanie.

Even though my Sidewinder wasn't in Time Out long enough for me to truly forgive it, I bit the bullet and finished it. This time, there was no unpleasant surprise.

Sangeeta, sadly blogless these days, had a Yarn Swap and Sale party at her house this past Saturday. I took three grocery bags full of yarn and only came home with one. That one was mostly yarn no one wanted plus enough for two pairs of socks that I got from Mary. With the money I made, I bought two books that have been on my wish list.

Knitting for Peace combines history, contact information and patterns in a well written and designed format. There is a great sweater pattern that uses odds and ends of yarn in an interesting and clever way.

So far there are two sweaters and a scarf from Knitting Nature on my Want To Knit list.

This bag from Obey The Pure Breed makes me laugh every time I use it. Check out the extensive list of breed, mutt, baby, cat and peace items available from this hilarious site. My only gripe, nothing with Deerhounds.

The stole and the sidewinder are lovely! Good book choices, too! I've been eyeing that Knitting For Peace at Barnes & Noble, but haven't bought it yet. Looks good, though.

MS3 looks beautiful! Great sock, too.
Good score on the books, I like the way Nora Gaughan's mind works. There are a couple of things in there I would like to make and wear for myself. Deerhounds certainly deserve their own bag!
