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
Here's my most recent acquisition, courtesy of Overstock.com. 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.
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.
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.
