Work work work...

That's been what it's all about lately. People think that summer is the busy real estate time but it's really late winter, early spring. So, right now, I'm just trying to keep it all together. And, to top it off, I leave today for another two-day class which I really can't afford right now time-wise.

I have new yarn, but no photo cord here to show you. It's Tofutsies from South West Trading Company. Sock yarn...superwash wool, soysilk, cotton, and Chitin. It's supposed to be naturally antibacterial. I thought they would be great socks for Colin. Chitin is fiber from shrimp and crab shells! It's made in China and it feels wonderful. Check it out somewhere... Maybe here... my LYS.

I also got new Skacel needles for my lace project. Hopefully they will be pointy enough. I was having trouble with that. What I'd really like is a super pointy circular for that. The Denise needles are pointy enough but the lace weight yarn gets hung up in the connection.

Photos the end of the week. I promise! Knit on.

I'll be interested to hear your reviews of both the sock yarn and the needles. I have been tempted to try both but have been saving my money until I hear more opinions.

Holly, I have been a bad bad commentor! I am glad you love the Pedicure colors! I have 3 colors of Tofutsies here and can't decide which to start on yet! We miss you at Group and hope you can come next month but we also understand you have been really busy. It was great seeing you at Carla's on Sunday!
Big Hugs!

I kept readin Chitlin instead of Chitin...
and was thinking how in the H do they make yarn out of chitlins?? I know they are making it out of corn and soy and stuff, but chitlins?? ick.
