Late night purchases...

Isn't incredible that we can go shopping after the "real" stores close? I love it! I have been wanting yarn for the stockings in the "Handknit Holidays" book. Here's a picture of them. I could only find them in someones blog photos so here's to her, Barbara! Over-the-Knee-Socks Aren't they great? I wear long dresses and skirts so I won't mind a bit wearing those. I wear knee highs anyway. Haven't worn pantyhose in several years! This is what I will knit them with, Rowan Cashsoft in the color Papyrus. Yes, I bought the last 4 skeins!!! I did opt for the color Walnut if my first choice had been taken. I rarely buy yarn for something I don't intend to start immediately but the price was right you know!
I am currently finishing up a red and brown felted bag. Hopefully the weekend. I also keep plugging along on my Alice Starmore, Kinsale, row by tedious row but I still love it!

Those socks will feel so luxurious in the cashsoft! I love when JBW has sales with great prices on Rowan. Can't wait to see your socks!
