Ultracool.

I found a new favorite seller on Etsy today. She was featured on the front page and she makes these fabulous shoes. I've ordered them in Ultramarine and am so thrilled about them (and as always I owe my ability to finally make a color choice to Andrew.) Being able to clothe myself through Etsy is a good thing.And while at the Philadelphia Craft Show, I picked up this Lily Yung necklace which is my New Favorite Thing. Little felt circles sewn up with red thread. It has me thinking about using more fabric in my jewelry...

I also fell in love with Anna Torma's embroidery there. Stunning. I need to let it sink in and them maybe I'll be able to write about it.

I'm waiting on an order from Knitpicks that will allow me to start on some Christmas presents. I'm excited to start knitting for Christmas, but it REALLY irks me that stores already are doing the Christmas thing. Hawking Christmas before Thanksgiving should be illegal. Yesterday, in two separate stores, I had to listen to CHRISTMAS CAROLS. Ugh. I am a huge Christmas fan, but I hate Christmas when it's not Christmas. Don't even get me started on holiday special reruns in the summer.
Anyway, while I'm waiting for that yarn and since I finished Andrew's sweater, I'm starting a sweater for myself. This sweater involves size 5, 2, and 0 needles. Any bets on whether I'm going to finish it? I'm seriously worried that as soon as my holiday yarn comes in, this sweater will be dropped never to be seen again. The one thing it has going for it is that I'm knitting it up in a superwash wool. I've never used it before, but it's so soft and I'm enjoying puzzling over the magic that allows it to be machine washed and dried. That's reason enough to knit the whole thing up. Anyway, here I am humbly starting the bottom trim. Wish me luck.
