I am breathing a sigh of relief. The Jaywalker is back on the needles, and I'm back in the knitting groove. Phew! Thanks for all of your moral support during my trying time. I still ended up with an extra stitch, but as I told Romi, I just knit two together and all is well! Notice she also experienced a knitting crisis yesterday. Here's my proof that everything is ok.

Now for the yarn porn. Remember my visit to see Sheri at The Loopy Ewe last Saturday? (I have to admit, she posted yesterday that she has gotten in even more yarn, and I was tempted to visit again!) Anyway, Sheri is wonderful; super sweet, very kind, and has the best yarn ever! I drooled as I walked down her basement steps and began to see all of the gorgeous yarn in her shop. She actually said she feels she's lucky because whenever she needs a yarn fix, she just goes to her basement. How cool is that? So, here's what I was able to obtain:

From the left: 1 skein Seacoast Handpainted in Kelp, 2 skeins Apple Laine in Strawberry Jam, 2 skeins Claudia Handpainted in Butter Pecan, and a 150g skein of Handmaiden Sea Silk. I will definitely be visiting her again!

I'm glad the crisis is over! I've done the same thing and had to resort to a friendly lys owner.

The new yarn is gorgous! I will definitly have to make a stop there sometime soon.

Looks great~ Love that sock yarn

Romi said...

Those look gorgeous! I'm glad you decided to just ignore that extra stitch! :)

Now I know I have to go visit Sheri! I can't wait!

By the way, I meant to email your the response to your question about what yarn I'm using but sense I'm on your blog I will mention it now. I'm using Zephyr 50% merino wool 50% silk.

I'm sorry if I missed it - I can't seem to find. Your jaywalkers, what colorway of Scout's Swag is that? It's a little hard to tell. It's gorgeous though!

holy smokes...I love the pecan one! I've been eyeing sea silk for a while day I'll give in. ;)

Have you used Seacoast before? I've seen it before, but I don't know too much about it.

I had the same exact problem with a sock I'm working on! I had an extra stitch and have no idea why, but like you k2tog and went on my happy way. :)
