Updates with New Stuff

Since the never ending socks are making my whole body itch (figuratively not literally, it's beautiful yarn and I am not having an allergic reaction to it.)
and the Tiger Eyes are too difficult to take along anywhere because the pattern is too complex.

So, I started another pair
They are Sockotta Socks. It's just the Basic Sock Recipe from this book: Knitting Rules But the yarn makes them interesting so I am calling them my Vanilla Swirl socks. Vanilla because the pattern is plain and Swirl because the colors kinda swirl.

This picture is not even close to accurate for color but it will have to do for now.

I also picked up this yarn a few weeks ago
It's Patons SWS (Soy Wool Stripes) yarn in Natural Pink. The ball on the left is pretty accurate as far as colors go. At least as good as I can get my crappy camera to take. I want to use it to make a cute scarf. Maybe something with drop stitches again but I haven't decided on a pattern yet.
I also got out this yarn from the stash

I have already swatched it for this:
It's the Lotus Blossom Tank from Interweave Knits Summer 06 (I believe) I've got gauge so I think I will get going on it soon. I've been wanting to knit a new sweater for myself for awhile.
Other than all this project planning, I've just been busy with the play but I thought it was time you got an update with pictures.
