New Acquisitions...

As I am acquiring new skills, it is only natural that I'd acquire new items.. (Just keep telling yourself that your stash is under control and there is no reason why you shouldn't add to it..) First, I got my shipment of yarn from Argosy Yarns. I got 1 hank each of their 'Lotus Blossom' yarn in Summer Romance and in Sienna to use for my Mastering DPNs class that I am taking. I only needed one hank, but truth be told, I was so excited that I may someday master DPNs, that I bought a second hank to make more of whatever I make in class with the first skein. Argosy Yarns was generous enough to include a complimentary hank of their 'Bonsai Bamboo' yarn in Old Rose. It is also a sport weight yarn. I do not know what I'll do with it yet, but I'm sure with the help of Ravelry, I'll figure it out!

Also, My 16 pair of Addis came in the mail yesterday. I won them on an Ebay auction!! I got them in 32 inch length so that I can do more Magic Loop projects! (Now if only I could get the hang of Magic Loop!) They are so beautiful.. I stared at them for 10 minutes. I can't wait to use them!

I also got some Bernat Satin Sport Weight in Meadow. I got this yarn to again practice DPNs.. once I learn them. I thought it was a pretty color for socks. I have used Bernat Satin before. It does have a nice sheen and makes your projects look very beautiful and new.

I also purchased some Magic Loop Sock patterns from iKnitiative.com. I ordered: Basic Magical Socks, Polka Dot Socks, and Bamboo Rib Socks via digital download. It was $7/pattern, but I received the digital link almost immediately and I know I will use and reuse these patterns. I hope I get good at this magic loop thing soon!
