Sock yarn: STR Spring Fling, Lorna’s Laces Embers (2 skeins, 1 not pictured), Nature’s Palette Lupine (2 skeins etc), Mountain Colors Bearfoot Larkspur (actually very manly, planning for Dave), and Oak Grove Desert Shade (2 skeins etc) (love this colorway, may end up ordering different yarns in the same).

Marilyn cardi pattern and 1 skein (of 8) of Black Water Abbey yarn in Jacob.

1 skein/ 250 yds of 60/40 Merino/Angora fingering weight in fawn from Toots LeBlanc & Co on the left; 1 skein/ 4 oz/ 170 yds of prime 100% Suri Alpaca (blend of mom & son/cria) from Long Hollow Alpacas: both incredibly soft and luscious!

Circular needle tags, Chibi (added in the set of 3 small needles, 5 needles total, should be set for a long time (assuming occasional loss)), and an Offhand Designs circular needle bag (which is now officially my sock knitting bag, holding my sock DPNs (there’re pockets for them, too), small gage circulars, small crochet hook, and a few notions in the zipped accessory pocket).

: Sexy knitting from White Lies! I’d been eyeing this pattern for awhile. It was great to see the knitted sample in person. I don’t know when I’ll get to it….
