It is Possum lace yarn!!! It is made from 60% merino wool, 30% Possum and 10% silk! Cool huh?

So it has been very cold here. Well, cold for the middle of august which has made my asthma pretty bad so i haven't been blogging. But i have been knitting.
Here is Hermione's cable and bobble hat from Charmed Knits i started the cables but not the bobbles.

I also started a new sock (photos coming soon) with soxx appeal. I got the yarn at Yarn Gallery. And i just cast on STR Spring fling which i love.
I going to knit a diagonal scarf with this

cool, right?
I got the yarn at the soxy lady and I forget what it was but this was the only one left.
I also read A Secret Rage by Charlaine Harris which was great. I love her books and if you haven't read any of hers please do.
And now i will show pics of my little baby Asta

Isn't she adorable?

I named her after Dashiell Hamment's Asta in The Thin Man (the book not the movie, although I LOVE the thin man movies ) but when I tell people her name they say oh, what a odd ( weird, different) name.

Look at the little tongue! And yes, she does have hand knit sweaters.

And this is my other baby, Sherlock ( named after Sherlock Holmes)
You can't tell, but she is wearing a Harley Davidson collar. I think she likes it, she has yet to get out of it.
Also, I have six ( yes, six)boxes of yarn coming to me in the mail. So when I get them I'll post photo's for you to drool over.

What yarn?

I found my camera.

dream in color, lunamoth by woolly bully. tomato salad by Urban Gypsy

This sock yarn was hand-dyed in Lancaster, Pa

Here's all my sock yarn

Still sock yarn

In case you were wondering, you are looking at 93 skeins (well, socks)
This is almost ALL my yarn.
I went to my first S&B (which was great, i loved it and we were really freaking the muggles out) and took pics but my camera didn't like them.
Not much in knitting to report, it's very very very very humid here.

over the weekend

Over the weekend, my friend had a beautiful baby girl. Her name is Ruby Mae.
And here is the hat that I knit her (please excuse the blurry. I put my camera somewhere so that I wouldn't lose it, hence I can't find it.)

Over the weekend I went to Reading Fair. And my cousin, who is from Seattle
saw a cow close up for the first time. EVER.

It's hard to tell in this photo, but the cow kept trying to eat her shirt.
Let's see what else did I do? Oh yes, that's right!! I felted a purse!!

It's purples and blues (again bad photos) The pattern is the Quick felted bag out of the 101 one-skein wonders.

Also over the weekend (boy, I was busy) I started a hat.
Hermione's cable and bobble hat from Charmed Knits
I started a little bit ago so there's not much there.
I did finish a sock but the camera doesn't like it. So when i find my camera you can see it. Which should be very soon. I hope.

here is the stage at musikfest where meatloaf was playing(this photo was taken a few minutes before he started)

See that little white blobby thing? Guess who that is? MEATLOAF!!!!!!!!

The concert was great. Though very very very hot. And that is the reason i have not been knitting and crocheting as obsessively as i usually do.
Today the heat index was 99 degrees, so needless to say, i really don't feel like doing anything except sitting in front of the a.c. and listening to my ipod.
I'm hoping to have a sock done tomorrow, so keep your fingers crossed.

The picture didn't get my Urban GypZ in Tomato Salad which is so cool. I cant wait to knit it.

what i'm up to

I've been busy visiting my cousin. Shes here for 2 weeks and I'm trying to get her to knit and crochet. I think I'm winning.
So anyway, I have not finished anything which is very, very rare for me (i blame the heat it was 98 today) i have on the other hand bought yarn. And books.
I have been looking over the interweave knits fall 07 and went to Yarn Gallery and bought the yarn to make both of the hats and scarfs (though i might wait a little to knit them up with them being wool and all)
I'm waiting for my package from the loopy ewe with antici----pation(rocky horror reference)
Also I'm designing a hat for my dad (he says he wants a jaunty hat) so if you have any ideas id be happy to here them.
