What madness is this?

For some reason, my rapidly approaching return to work has caused me to undertake some crazy stash enhancement. Below are the most recent acquisitions.

Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in Fall Foliage bought from Bec (Becboo on Ravelry)

Bruised Bloodwood 100% Baby Alpaca by Yarn Cakes

Merino Chubby Sock Yarn in Smoke from The Knittery's closing down sale - alas.

And a group shot including two yarns from Wired for Fibre in Hero and Baroque. My crappy camera cant capture the beauty of the dark purple of Hero and the plummy shade of Baroque.

Now the fun begins - what to make with all these lovelies?

Best foot forward

There has been some knitting progress in Casa Joy and Widower. I've managed a whole Escher sock from the amazing Knitting Socks With Handpainted Yarn. Its a cornucopia of fabulousness and I havent been able to get the Escher off my needles quick enough. There are so many wonderful socks to make!

The amazing case of the vanishing Bijou

Here is my Bijou, coming along very nicely thank you very much.

Here is my Bijou with the three needle bind off completed for the shoulder seams.

Decency laws prevented me from putting up a snap of me trying it on. (OK and my vanity too).

Current state of my Bijou, ready for round two in the next size up.

(Just so you know, the top photo has the truest colour.)
