End of January 2013 Post

It's the end of January, you know what that means....time for the tally!  Just before the end of Jan I finished my socks out of Poste Yarn from Simply Socks Yarn Company.  Pretty nice stuff! I was in love with the colorway. It's got these great thick stripes in brown, turquoise, and light blue.  Below is a close-up of the yarn, but first the stats:
January 2013 reconing:
  • 1 pair of socks (for me)
  • 1 skien of yarn in pink and brown
  • 1 huge blanket 
Selfish index: 100%


Here's my most recent acquisition, courtesy of  It's 4 cones of yarn (LB 18somethingorother), a book called Amigurumi Knits, and a new ball-winder. The ball-winder is to replace the one that I have that doesn't work so well anymore.
And, of course, what end of month post would be complete without showing my new projects. I couldn't help it, I had a little startitis.

To the right is my new project out of Bernat Mosaic, two different colorways, which looks a lot like if you do the same thing with Noro. The yarn is a lot like Noro, I suspect on purpose.
And here is my last new project, another daybreak. This will be my 3rd. It's done in a dark red (sorry for the bad color in the picture) and navy blue variegated yarn and a plain navy yarn, both are cascade heritage.

I love the daybreak, it's such a quick knit - probably because you can plan to do just 1 more stripe before you put it down and suddenly, you have a ton of stripes.
