1st yarn of 2009

I made my 1st yarn purchase for 2009. As we all know sock yarn does not count as stash. Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Sock - '09 Jan. - New Years Lights. I would start a sock for the Knitting on the Lake retreat.So I wound it up and then pulled out the under the bed (really it is under the couch) storage container to see what other sock yarn I needed to wind up. This was just in case I did not use the Lorna Laces. It is a fingering weight and I have never used that light a weight before.
So here it all is. I ended up taking the Lorna Laces with me and Misty Mountain Farm Jubilee- Crimson Tide. Next post will be about the KOTL 09, I promise.

It's lucky that sock yarn doesn't count as stash ;)

Hope you have / had a great time at your Knitting on the Lake retreat!

Aha! It seems that I really wasn't the last person to post about Knittin' at the Lake. I just did my post a few days ago. It was a lot of fun and next year I hope things work out that I can go for the whole weekend instead of just one night. It was great meeting you and I hope I'll see you again next year.
