Free Your Fade is growing. I need to do four sections in the last colour and I'm half way through the second one. There could be a bit of knitting tomorrow - I'm spending time with Trish. It's hair day.
I'm knitting with Rockshelter Sock and highly recommend the yarn.

A box of Rockshelter Sock (25 colours) arrived in Myrtle Beach yesterday. Dad will bring it home with him and we should see it just before Beth and I go away on November 22.

Meet Humus - a brand new colour.
Humus is variegated with the colors of a forest floor: cinnabar, rust and red wine, bittersweet yellow-oranges, apple and olive greens, jewel-like spruce greens, caramel and chocolatey browns.
Raku Glaze

He is also bringing home a box from Cocoknits. These are perfect stocking stuffers.
  • Keep your metal bits and tools close at hand with the Maker's Keep.The silicone slap bracelet sports a brushed steel-plated magnet, has measuring lines for inches and centimeters on the underside, and fits any size wrist. 
    Originally designed to hold our row counter, stitch markers, and yarn snips — any steel accessories will cling to the magnet, so it is perfect for makers of all kinds. Knitters, sewists, hair and clothing stylists, fly fishers, or weekend warriors will all find it handy to keep nails, screws, pins and endless small items close at hand while creating.

    • Our new Limited Edition Triangle Stitch Markers are designed with an angled shape to stand out from your knitting. They slide easily along your needle, and the bold black & white colors are visible against any yarn color. 

       Each set of markers comes in an adorable logo-stamped steel tin with hinged lid - includes 6 of each size and color (36 total) and accommodates needle sizes up to US6/4mm, US9/5.5mm, and US11/8mm. 

       Tin and markers all cling to the Cocoknits Maker’s Keep or any magnet. The tin is sized to fit on our Maker’s Keep. Throw in a few of your other Cocoknits markers in for a perfect on-the-go knitting travel container!

    • Beth and I decided to start watching New Amsterdam. We just finished the second episode and so far I would highly recommend it. Now I need to turn the TV off or we will end up doing 'just one more episode' until it's one in the morning.
