Eye Candy, er, what day is it today?

This is the big poster on the front of the Portland Opera Center. Please click for big, the guy in the picture is Chris! This is from Return of Ulysses last year, with Kendra Herrington.

Here is E's hoodie, before buttons--I forgot to photo it after we got the buttons on.


And now, the shopping.

From Knit Purl:

and one that got knitted while I was in Portland:

It might be a little harder to shop when the yarn is organized by color, but it's certainly fun to look at.

oooh hurry and knit up that Noro sock yarn, i want to hear what you think about it. i like mine, but ive only washed the socks about 3 times so far. i knit them on a 1/2 size larger needle than i usually do, because it's not superwash. im thinking about another skein, but at either $19 or $21 each (depending on which store you get it at) i have other things i want to buy.

Blogger put me on 'time out' when I tried to comment. I guess I've been in the corner long enough and get to post now! I *said* I loved all your new acquisitions! I *said* I loved that Kureyon lesson-and I totally *get* it now--Ku-RAy-on! Yeah!-doh!

I love the Shibui socks! I did some research on your blog looking for more information about your book, but didn't find it. I hope you will tell us more about it. Interesting title! I helped a community group restore an ancient graveyard once, and since then I have been facinated by them.
