Just realized as I was logging in that this is my 100th post. (Why does that make me feel some kind of pressure to make it an extra good one?) Expectations be damned and full speed ahead! Yesterday, I spent some time with Zigzag, a tapestry needle and scissors, and ended up with this:

That's all the ends trimmed after being diligently woven in; so that's one monkey off my back!

I also finished sock #1 for the DH. The yarn is Meilenweit Magico; and I must admit I was failing to see where the "magico" was revealing itself until...

Yes, let's take a closer look at that.

In a yarn that in the skein appeared to be yellow green and turquoise, there is a tiny stripe of wine that matches the DH's sweater in progress almost exactly. Truly magic; I'm sorry I doubted you, Meilenweit Magico!

I finished knitting my felted clogs.

I did not finish weaving ends on said clogs, nor did I felt them. Just wanted to share how ginormous they are pre-felting. (For reference, I wear an 8 1/2 to 9 shoe.)

I swatched for the Union Square Market Pullover in this:

Not only is this a) not alpaca, but it is also b) a super-cheap yarn sub yet again! (I think I spent under $15 for the yarn) I think, however, that it will do just dandy!

I swatched using the new Knitpicks needles. I think I like them. I know I like the cord, and the needles are nice and pointy and slick. I've never even touched an Addi Turbo, so I can't pretend to make comparisons there, but they are great for the price and that's my cheap-o 2 cents!

Speaking of things I've never had, I got my first ever set of fancy beaded stitch markers for my (very limited) participation in the Mock Croc Sock a Long! Thanks, Amanda!

Just to make this more scattered, I'll leave you with this:

Anyone care to hazard a guess? What is this growing up to be?

I'm so glad you got your stitch markers. Apprently the Post Office was out to lunch on those--Katrina's (who is local to me) came back wtih postage due, but my mom's and sis's (2,000 miles away) got there just fine. So, I slapped an extra stamp on yours for good measure. :)

I am loving the matching stripe on the socks, by the way! How magical.

No guess on the mystery object--lacey, but nothing specific is coming to mind. :)
