New WIP...

Here is one of the new WIP. I went to the library the other day and checked out Last Minute Knitted Gifts and yesterday I received my Rockin' Sock Club sock yarn in "Flower Power". So I decided to jump on the Chevron Scarf Band Wagon. I went Stash diving to see if I could find a yarn that would work well with "Flower Power". I came up with this...What do you think? Its Yarntini sock yarn in "Pure Fall", I won this skein in her Halloween contest last October. That's about all on the knitting front.
I also receive my Yarn Pirate Booty Club package yesterday are some pictures. Enjoy and Happy Knitting!

Coming along...

Well My Penllyn sock is coming along. I am knitting this pattern for the Sock a Month Knitalong 4 as well as for my Yarn Pirate Booty Club. This is such a great knit. I am trying to get it done on "down" time but for some reason I start to fall asleep when I am knitting. I guess we can chalk that up to Cierra's crazy sleeping schedule. :) Here are pictures hope you all enjoy. I will update these again in the near future. I should be done with sock #1 within the next couple days.

Happy Knitting!
