I ordered a bunch of yarn...then I ordered a few more skeins...then I knit a couple of pairs of socks with the new yarn and started looking at some stuff that was already in my stash... And now I pretty much want to knit all of the yarn I own right now.
That's about seven evenings of knitting. The blue and brown pair is Taffy Sock-Ease and the multi-colored pair pair is Summer Night, part of the Arne and Carlos line from Regia.
One of the things I'm enjoying about the Potting Shed Mysteries by Marty Wingate is that I haven't had to wait an entire year for the next book in the series. The Bluebonnet Betrayal has Pru working with the Austin Rock Garden Society to build a garden at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show. Pru is looking forward to the delayed arrival of Twyla Woodford, the president of the society, but shortly after the woman finally reaches the garden show her body is discovered in the partially built exhibit. It was enjoyable to see Pru get a chance to work with plants from her native Texas and I love how, in addition to solving the mystery, she deals with the repeated setbacks that threaten their display.
