Major enhancement occurred this weekend, no not my boobs; yarn, needles and patterns. I think I'm out of my knitting blahs. I've noticed when I'm not into knitting, I'm not into stashing either. But the feelings, the love is back. I made a trip to my new favorite yarn store, Unraveled, and picked up this On-line clip mercerized cotton, grey cotton classic, and four skeins of Koigu.
The On-line is for the new ballet camisole from Magknits, cotton classic will become CeCe and the Koigu is for shawl.

I picked up these patterns and trekking sock yarn from my local yarn store. I have the yarn in my stash for the sweaters. I plan to knit these once the weather cools down.

I also received the knit pick needles on Saturday. I plan to test them out on the camisole. They look and feel great and the cord is very thin and flexible.

I'm off to work. I decided not to take today off because I'm off for a 2 week vacation as of Friday.

Great minds think alike! I have yarn lined up for the Ballet Camisole and CeCe, and I have both of those KPS patterns ready for fall!! I'm anxious to hear what you think about the KnitPicks needles.

Oh boy! Can't wait to see what you think of the needles. The KR article was pretty positive.

Great stash enhancement! Since you said it's your favorite new LYS, I'm taking it the visit went well? I'm so glad you got turned on to this nice store.

I am tempted to get some of those needles...but I'm waiting to get more feedback from blogworld :)
