Cutest Habs fan

Ok so that shawl? It's not gonna happen. I keep messing it up and I haven't knit a stitch in days because I'm no longer motivated. I guess I could try again and hope to have it for the second wedding I have to go to at the end of August, but I don't even want to. So it'll be put in time out and maybe in 6 months I'll want to try again.

And my mom is getting married in two years, so maybe I'll get to wear it at HER wedding! :)

Now to make this post less boring, I'll give you pics of my cutie in his new Habs diaper! :)

Ooops I did it again...

Ok so you all know I have a Knit Picks addiction, right? I know some people don't like their yarn, but I love them and I love their prices. And their needles too.

I'm usually pretty reasonnable though and I order from them maybe twice a year. You may remember I ordered some of their Palette yarn recently, just before the price increased. Well, I did it again and made another order a couple of weeks ago.

See, I got this code in my emails for 10 $ off a set of Zephyr interchangeables. I already have the nickel plated set, but I wanted to buy a second set and I like the Zephyr tips sooo... I just couldn't say no to 10 $ off. And of course, if I'm going to order, I'm going to add some yarn.


I got some Wool of the Andes in Pumpkin and Forrest Heather for a Pumpkin Hat. Some Wool of the Andes in Cloud and Cobblestone Heather to make Christmas Gnomes (I'll also use some WOTA in Cranberry that I already have). I bought a few skeins of Stroll Sport (in Mink Heather, Wave Heather and Winter Night) for hats. And a skein of Stroll Tonal in Gypsy, just because.

Can I say just how much I love (LOVE) the Stroll Tonal? I have three colours so far, but Gypsy is definitely my favourite. It's beautiful!

I got socks!

I finally got a FO to share! It's actually my first post-baby FO and no, it is NOT a shawl! After frogging to the lifeline a stupid number of times (*coughFIVEcough*), I decided I needed a break from the shawl. And I'm glad I did, because now I have socks!

**ETA: Sorry if the pics are huge, I'm not sure how to fix it**


PatternEunice, by Cookie A.
Yarn: Knit Picks Essential Tweed in Plum
Needles: US 1 (2.25 mm) and US 2 (2.75 mm) DPNs

I love that pattern! It was a fun knit and it would have been quick if I didn't have a baby to take care of ;)

Also, I wanted to share my latest Etsy purchase. When I bought my set of interchangeables from Knit Picks, it came with a binder to store them. Well I never liked that binder, so I finally bought an interchangeable needles case from Southern Woolies and I absolutely love it! You can fit more than one set in it (which is good since I *may* have ordered a second set recently ;) ).
