Black Friday At The LYS.

We're back from the wilds of NJ, full of tryptophan and apple pie and mucho knitty goodness. Like what, you ask? Well...

I made Baby A.K another pair of socks.
I started a pair of socks for Mother of A.K. No picture yet, but they look just like my Koigu beauties, except in another color.

I went nuts at my LYS. How nuts?
Two skeins of Katia Nordic Print yarn for holiday gifts. Shoulda got another skein for a gift to myself. Oh wait, I kinda did that, but with......three balls of Filatura di Crosa Superior, for my first foray into lace knitting. Can I just say right now, that this yarn is absolutely the softest, most luxurious yarn I've had the pleasure of just touching? I can't wait to knit with this stuff.

And yarn for a baby blanket for Baby A.K. Remember that fit she threw a week or so ago when she realized the blanket I was making was for her teacher and not for her? Well, she's been "reminding" me every so often about that: "Knit blankie for me?" "Cozy blankie... knit now?" I've got to get this done quick, so I'm going to stick to the pattern I'm using for Baby A.K.'s teacher, since it's easy. I know I haven't posted a picture of this blanket yet, but you hold 3 strands of yarn at once for the whole thing to create a really colorful and interestingly-textured piece. What colors to use for my girl? After careful consideration, and a consult with Dori and Leslie, I decided on these colors:
Bonus points to whoever can guess what the "theme" for this blanket is just by looking at the colors. Hint: watch a few hours of Nick Jr.

Time to settle down with a piece of pie and my sock knitting, although I really ought to start one of those Katia scarves...
