Lots of Boxes

We unpacked many, many boxes today.

A shipment came in from Knitter's Pride. The individual, interchangeable Marblz tips are in stock.

We have a new sock yarn. Regia Stripemania 6ply. This is a thicker sock yarn that will also work great for hats and scarves.
75% wool
25% polyamide

375m on a 150gram ball

22 stitches=4" on 4mm needles

Download the free pattern for the socks - 1 ball on 3mm-4mm needles - depending on how tight you want the knitting to be.

For more free patterns with Stripemania....

Of course I took a look on Ravelry. Here is a pattern for an awesome pair of fingerless gloves...

Fluormania Color is back in stock. Want to knit bright socks that your kids can't lose??

One ball will make a pair on 2.5mm-2.75mm needles.

Lynda needs a project. She lives up north where they are getting a lot more snow than we are getting in Ancaster. She needs knitting to keep her busy. I've had my eye on a cowl for a while but there hasn't been time so Lynda gets this too.
Pattern: Pine Bough Cowl (free on Ravelry)
Yarn: Rowan Tweed

I hope she knits fast. I can't wait to see it finished. No pressure Lynda :)

My knitting is progressing. Clue #2 is finished and I'm going to start #3 tonight. Grey's Anatomy and How to Get Away with Murder. Who actually committed the murder? I'm not sure where the show will/can go for season 2.

Our house is finally ready to be put on the market. Our agent is listing it on Monday. Walls have been painted. It's surprising how much slobber Roko and Melo can get on the walls. It has been cleaned from top to bottom. Really, really cleaned. Today the tile floors in the kitchen and laundry room were professionally cleaned. For some reason the builder used white grout. It doesn't matter what you do, short of scrubbing with a tooth brush, the grout won't come back to white. It's almost there but it took a special machine. The new house has dark grout everywhere. We won't make that mistake again.

Now it's time to put the fireplace on, make a cup of peppermint tea and knit! Stay warm.
