Strike One!

I have to apologize for the pic - it is not the best light (maybe click on it to get a better view) today.

What you see on the left is 10 balls of hunter green Lana Gato that Cindy generously gave away! When is green part of PS2? Hmmmm....lots of time to come up with the perfect pattern.
It's a very soft wool-acrylic blend.

In the very front you can see the 2 skeins of hand-dyed sock yarn that I won at KnitPastis' contest last month. Beautiful wool just right for making some much needed ankle socks.

On the right there are 4 balls of dk. blue and 2 silver/grey Merino Superwash that are destined to become a Ravenclaw House Scarf over at the Countdown To Harry KAL. They also just happen to fit right in with the PS2 colour theme. The only thing is I will have to take a strike at Stashalong - 'cause I bought these ones.

In lieu of a project pic -- Darling is coming along; I should finish the body tonight and hopefully do the collar while I 'get my Lost on' tomorrow night -- I will leave you with a few links to some great blogs I found through PS2.

Fat Chick Crafts - some gorgeous Kool-Aid dyed yarn

FrickKnits - Knitting and books: a winning combo

The Knitting Philistine - come on, that title alone is worth the visit!

The Stitchin' Wench - check out her Peapod set

Thee Handworks - incredibly beautiful quilting

Tiennie Knits - stranded colour work

Turtlegirl's Bloggy Thing - Yarn Pron Fridays!

Velma's World - Scrumbling - I would love to try that.
