Some Yarn, 1 FO and a WIP

Here is a picture of the yarn that I promised from last week. I love how you can see the sparkles in the yarn. The yarn color are (from left to right) Juliette, Aqua and Sapphire all are in her Lisa-Marie Sock yarn, 75% Superwash Merino/20% Nylon/5% Stellina. The yarn has good yardage 438 yds.  If you want great customer service and beautiful yarn check out Evermore Studios on Etsy. 

Now for what I've been working on  finished the Mitts that I made to match my Rustling Leaves Beret. The first one took over a week to do but I figure that's not to bad since I wanted it to match.  The second one I finished in no time at all. I love how this turned out and I hope that Alana Dakos would approve.
I still working on my socks the BFF by Cookie A. I'm on the second one and am on the leg. So i should have them done soon. I want to start a shawl the Whirlpool Scarf by Anna SudoI have purchased yarn to knit the Rocky Coast Cardigan by Hannah Fetting. So my to do list is growing, I need more hours in the day to knit.

Here is some more yarn that I bought from Evermore Studios, I also got on a later shipment, Teal Gradient, Lemon Ice4, Aqua in lace and Pale Twilight in lace. LOVE LOVE her yarn.
I received some books in the mail: "My Grandmother's Knitting" family stories and inspired knits from top designers  Larissa Brown. "Socktopus" by Alice Yu, 17 pairs of sock a great looking book and can't wait to knit out of it. The last book is "The Knitter's Book of Socks" By Clara Parkes. The yarn lover's ultimate guide to creating socks that fit well, feel great, and last a lifetime. This book is filled with great information on wool and yarns, with patterns compiled from great designers a true must have for any library.
Work is going good and keeping me busy, so keep warm and those pointy sticks aclickn'.
Happily knitting, Bye.
