Yarn Fairy & Olympics Knitting

I got some more yarn yesterday. There is 8 skeins of Wool of the Andes, 5 skeins of Palette, 3 skeins of Gloss lace (this is for SOTS3), 1 skein of CotLin, set of Harmony size 3 24" Circulars (also for SOTS 3), and a set of size 13 Options tips. The size 13 tips are to knit a bag with. I was surprised I didn't have this size but had the size 15 tips.

Here is A Little Slip of a Thing that I finished up this morning. I added the grommets and tied on the strap. I will be making 2 more of these during the Ravelry Olympics. I hope to get both done before the closing ceremonies.

Stole Time

After seeing the last 2 secret of the stoles, I decided it was time to get over my fear of knitting lace with lace weight yarn. Charts don't scare me its knitting lacy delicate lace that gets me. I have no clue why I have issues. Maybe its because I have a 3 yr old and have concentration issues.

I picked out Knit Picks Gloss after originally picking out Knit Picks Shadow. The more I looked at Pink Posy Heather the more I thought it was WAY too pink for my tastes. With Brian's Help we picked out Gloss in Celery. Along with the yarn I got a set of Knit Picks Harmony needles. I have a set of their 32" needles in nickel but they felt too long when I was knitting my sample.
