stash and sample sale!

8/365 - tuesday

One of the things I’d like to do this year as part of my 365 project is to document some of my outfits – I wear multiple knitted items every day (at least in the winter) and I want you to do it too! There’s no point in knitting things and not wearing them, right?

Top and skirt – Anthropologie
Leggings – Garage (I love their leggings, despite not being of their demographic)
Sweater – Darjeeling
Oh, and I got new glasses before Christmas that I’m really enjoying.

Also! My stash and sample sale is now up on Flickr (and the stash portion on Ravelry as well). Email me or leave a comment with your email address to let me know if you want anything! There’s some awfully pretty stuff up there.

Yikes, I didn’t realize it was SO close until I counted! Rhiiiiiiinebeck!

I’ve made pretty good progress on that second Rhinebeck sweater, though –

I’m past the yoke divide and I’m about halfway through the waist decreases. I’m pretty happy with how it’s turning out – the yarn is so pretty, and it knits up fast because it’s aran weight! The other one, well, it’s still quite a blob. We shall see how much knitting I get in the next 2 weeks…there’s so much else I have to do!

I’m also working on a pair of Rhinebeck socks, not for me but for my fella – they’re out of Dream in Color Classy, so they’ll be cozy and warm for wearing while hanging out at the house we’re renting.

They’re really, really long too. How long?

how much sock?

13″ from the top of the cuff to the bottom of the heel flap. It’s a good thing these are worsted weight, they’re still going pretty quickly! I might need to use a bit of a second skein of yarn though, because they’re so long.

Also! I’m having a destash sale to make room for Rhinebeck purchases, so if you’re in the market for some awesome yarn, take a look and email me at cosmicpluto at cosmicpluto dot com if you’re interested in taking anything off my hands.

I’m moving house! I was given notice a few weeks ago by my new landlords (they’re doing renovations, blah) and I managed to find a pretty awesome apartment pretty quickly – I’m moving August 1. So you know what that means?
