Still with a dodgy pc :(

My main pc is still awaiting pick up, I guess there is always a down side to getting away for a few days! Dublin was fabulous! Cold but sunny, dry and wonderful! I even got into see Lisa and Jacquie at This is Knit. They had lots of scrummy new yarns!!! "I'll be back" However I was on a mission to pick up some DB Cashmerino DK to do another Rib and Cable Cardigan since my little sis ran off with the last one!!! I got this lovely blood red (it looks blood red to me!).

I also picked up some Noro Cash Iroho to complete my Sursa, which has been waiting patiently for this :)


I also got in a little knitting! Some more socks..........

My Karenina Socks by Jane Lithglow:Socktopus Club socks.
The yarn is Knittery Merino cashmere sock yarn.


Another pair of No Purl monkeys in Posh Emily: colour Pomegranate.

That's all folks, for now, there will more later in the week, computer permitting!! :)

ooh, that Noro looks nice. I haven't seen it before. Is it less scratchy than the usual Noro? Nice socks btw!

Gorgeous Noro, I am envious of you having that! I love blood red, and your socks too!

Aaaaah, what a treat! There is nothing like a city break!!! Particularly not when it involves wool shops sunshine!

Blood red is a very good description of that yarn, what a beautiful colour. I look forward to seeing it in the making!

The socks are looking ace, lovely yarn and sounds like you had a top time in Dublin.

Maggan said...

Oh such lovely yarns!! Love the colors on both of them. And your socks looks great too. I´m going away to the north for a week and I´ll be knitting Firestarter as well as my lacy project ;)

Sorry your PC is still poorly, fingers crossed it is back up to par very soon! Love the colours of your new stash and the socks are in fab colours too!

Having the exact same problem with my main PC hence no Finished Projects page on website yet to include your gorgeous No Purl Monkeys! Think all the PCs have the Noro virus (boom, boom)?!
