Thanks, tax return!

Today we went out to MacDonalds. They have chips, a playground and lots of kids. What else could a one and two-year-old want? Jasmine is brave enough to climb the steps and slide down the slide now, which is fun (she's pretty proud of herself, too). I sat there knitting the black toe of a second sock. I didn't get much done!

I picked this up at the post office on the way there:

Sunspun sent me a bag full of stash enhancement. This is Jitterbug number 128, which looks mostly brown on the website, but in real life is all sorts of pink/purple and green. Very nice. Can't believe I originally wanted something else that wasn't in stock.

And some Noro sock yarn, numbers S150 and S236.

And then some Noro Taiyo (number 2), which is cotton and wool, and is apparently Jasmine's favorite

And more sock needles (a pair of 2.5mm, 4ocm circulars) so that I can cast on new ones, even if I haven't yet finished the old ones Ü

I think I have enough sock wool to last me until my kids are all in school, including the unborn one! Does anyone think that's too much? hehe.

There is no such thing as too much sock yarn :)

Sock yarn doesn't count as stash, didn't you know that?

Sock yarn is comepletely different to regular stash. Also, due to its versatility (uses such as shawls, baby knits etc) it is even more necessary to have in your stash in case of "emergencies".
No guilt to be had there!

He he he. Wonderful! So exciting to have craft stock just waiting to reach some wonderful potential. Gets me excited at the possiblities. I must come and see your gorgeous 1 and 2 yo. I keep meaning to but end up needing to do other things.

That's your fault, Kel, for having four jobs. Take another job and we'll never see you again! Lucky the kids have blogs... hehe
