More yarn investments (=sales)

I feel that it is almost impossible not buy books at the yearly large book sale in February. I have found that it's as difficult to not buy yarn at any yarn sale.
Here is my increased stash from Marias yarn sale:
- Doredo wool yarn, intended to be a coat to N
- Eco cotton, for a spring sweater/cardigan to N
- Kid mohair, a tube shawl for me (pattern from Nysta)

Mosaic Yoke Jacket - almost there

It's getting closer! "Only" the neckline left.

I've started on a sock!!!

The yarn was intended for the January sock (in Stickameras sockklubb 2009)but I think I wait a bit more with those. Instead I started on the February socks (with the "January yarn") and I'm passed the heel on the first sock. Who knows, maybe I'll even finish it.

Last buy at Nysta (IRL)

at least in the store on Luntmakargatan.

Nina is closing her store (but will be around in other forms). Today was the last day and I made it to the store 5 minutes to closing. Being the last customer out this is what I carried home:
  • 22+2 Eskimo with the intension to crochet a jacket. I have looked at it before and now Maria and Marika has started working and discussing about the same idea.

  • 7 skeins of Malabrigo lace, I just couldn't leave them in the store, green and orange and sooo soft!!!!!

Good luck to Nina and see you around!

Chevalier mittens and 4.7m

The mittens are completed, very soft and warm, with 4.7 meters of yarn remaining.
Time for a new "subway project", maybe now I should knit socks?
