Stitch Markers…and Shopping

Sorry for the delay in getting this post done – blame Hershey!  I received my two sets of stitch markers from the stitch marker swap:

I do not know who these are from, they didn’t put their name in the package.  Aren’t they pretty?

These are from Katie – I like these a lot :o)  Thanks Katie!

The other day I went to my LYS to take photos and Abi met me there.  Doesn’t she look ready to do some serious yarn buying?

I guess I’m getting picky because I couldn’t find anything that seriously ‘called’ to me but I did manage to pick out a few skeins.  I’ll be making a couple more OSW’s out of these:

In the meantime, I’ll be starting this:

That is laceweight lambswool in a burgundy-ish color and is the softest thing I have ever touched (okay I’m not the only one to touch it, it was fondled by my entire knitting group).  I picked it up in Saratoga – part of my birthday haul thanks to my SO ;o) and it will become Madli’s Shawl…eventually…
