Danger, danger...


And this is why I don't let myself buy even one skein of yarn online... because this is what happens.

My First Plucky, Awww.

Yep, my first order of Plucky was waiting in my mailbox for me when I got home!!!
(I also think this means I have pink laceweight coming on Monday!)


Isn't it to-die-for?

800 yards of Fingering Superwash Merino. Mmmm.

Now to figure out what to knit!


I got some shoulders!

I still can't get an accurate photo of this colour (sealing wax), but man is it nice to knit with malabrigo lace!

Here's what I've got of my Featherweight Cardigan so far:




So I'm now finished all the raglan increases, and onto the back section. I have to work even for 9"... so I'm enjoying doing stockinette and having some mindless knitting on the needles.

However, I've got the lace bug again. I seem to have started a KAL (starting June 1) for some Beaded Snobby Knitting (ravelry link), so I'm really looking forward to my first beaded lace!!!

I spoiled myself with some Plucky yarn, so once it's arrived I'll decide what pattern I'm doing and go BEAD SHOPPING!

Oh noes, a craft that's sparkly. Beading is going to be dangerous!
