WIP Wednesday

Hello Knitters.

This past weekend we spent up in MN with family. My husband's cousin and her family are simply awesome! We love hanging out there, just being ourselves. No agenda, no worries, just laughs. Of course we make one outing to her LYS. It is an adorable shop called Amazing Threads. Sweet M treated me to this yarn I found. It is this delicious sock yarn and I fell in love with it. The color screams summer, beach, ocean and everything warm.

 I am not sure what pattern to choose yet... Any suggestions? I love patterns with a simple repeat, like the monkey socks or tadpoles pattern.
This weekend was so much fun. We ate amazing food, relaxed, laughed, knitted.... Speaking of which, N was spoiled with a new pair of socks. Now, he will not take them off. To see the socks and read about that story click here
On the way out of town we stopped at kids hair. This place is great for getting your kids hair cut (with reasonable prices). The bear wanted to add a bit of green as well. Finally, we said hi to my brother and M. Nolan played for hours with my brother's classic starwars toys.
Here is the project I started over the weekend. I love it. It gives me some hope spring is on its way and will always remind me of this prefect relaxing weekend. This is 4 different colors of sock yarn, by CoBaSi. (The chemist in me loves the name!)

How was your weekend? Busy week? Tonight, I am hosting a potluck for my knitting group. I am a bit nervous about hosting but it should be a great time. Happy WIP Wednesday.
I linked up with the Yarn Along on Ginny and Tami Amis. Check it out.


  1. Lovely colours! I think I need socks like these too. :-)

  2. That's the best kind of family to hang out with. Stress free. I love the yarn you picked up! I would go with a fairly simple pattern. They variegated won't need much else.

  3. Beautiful yarn and I love the stripy socks, fab colours. X

  4. That yarn definitely says "ocean". It is gorgeous. How about Hermione's Everyday Socks?
