Knit Picks and - OMG!

First of all, I have to mention that my Knit Picks order arrived on Friday. Because of my B&K commitment, however, I did not spend as much time drooling over my beautiful haul as I would have liked. I will have to save that for later. But I must mention that the Iris Alpaca Cloud I ordered is TO DIE FOR!!! Oh. My. GOD! It is absolutely drool-inspiring! Once I have some headspace, I will put a pic together of the whole shipment, with heavy emphasis on this gorgeous fiber so you can see for yourself. I am beside myself with excitement over it!

And speaking of excitement! I spent part of the afternoon and evening working on the basement (the Pit), another one of those "deadline" deals, as the landlord wants to do some work down there. I think I've got things at least tidied up enough so I won't be majorly embarrassed for him to see the mess down there. But in the process, I discovered a bag of long-lost WIPs! My Bernat Sweety has been resurrected, along with something else I'd completely forgotten about!

I was shocked, SHOCKED I tell you, to discover that I had made 5 complete motifs for the afghan the Sweety was for! I hadn't remembered getting this much done. My only difficulty now will be in figuring out how to eliminate the awful basement smell from my yarn.

The other item was a thread fashion doll blouse I had been in the process of making, no doubt for one of Isis's dolls. I found a whole skein of purple variegated #10 thread with the blouse, as well as my #5 steel hook, one of the 3 or 4 I was missing out of the set I have. I am still missing #4, and possibly up to two others (how high do the numbers go on these hooks? I have up to #12, is there a 13 and 14? There's two slots in the case indicating two more hooks belong in it...). Also in the bag was a booklet of fashion doll crochet outfits.

Now, the only item still missing (that I know of) is the afghan kit that had yarn to be woven through a lattice piece of cloth. Sooner or later, I'll trip over that too.

I'll post pics of these as well as my Knit Picks yarn as soon as I get a chance!
