What's funny (and telling) about this experience is that I dipped into my long-neglected stash of perle cotton that I'd bought for hand-quilting years ago, thinking "hooray! A use for this stuff that's been languishing!" Then, after finishing the first one and using about 80% of a ball, I got online and ordered about 15 more balls! (Hey, Joann.com had them on sale for $1.60!) And I didn't even enjoy making the darn things. They're beautiful and DD wants one, and I'll probably make a couple more, but I already have about 20 balls! There is something wrong with me. (In my defense, the ones I had already were mostly boring solids, most of the ones I ordered were cool variegated ones that make awesome bookmarks. [I saw some on ravelry.])

It's been very grey here for the past few days, so I have no pictures yet of the Travel Shawl.
Madelinetosh Tosh Worsted in Turquoise - not quite as turquoise as I'd expected, but I think I still like it.
I also have some Yarn Chef goodies that should be here tomorrow. Two skeins of Mulligatawny and one of Souffle.
I've started a wishlist of Yarn I Want -
Tanis Green Label in Olive, Moss, Garnet, Sand, Amber (I'm not sure she's doing Olive anymore though...)
Dream in Color Classy/Smooshy in Shiny Moss, Purple Rain, Chinatown Apple, Cocoa Kiss, Gothic Rose, November Muse, Strange Harvest
MadTosh Worsted in Dahlia, Fjord, Kale, Logwood, Moss, Norway Spruce, Olivia, Oxblood, Rose, Sequoia, Silver Fox, Wash
Yarn Chef Chiffon
Sundara Worsted or Sport in sweater quantity
Apparently I only want to knit with hand-dyed yarn anymore.
Here's another attempt at predicting what I will be knitting this month (I don't know why I'm bothering with this!)
1. Continue to work on Apres Surf. Finishing would be nice. But lace on 3's is slow going. Plus there's a hood.
2. Finish the Blackberries scarf already! Geez.
3. Pull out my mostly finished top-down raglan in Seafoam Comfy. Work on it.
4. I really should finish up the afghan that's supposed to go to college with DD.
5. Start Amelia.
