Last weekend Michael and I went to a Knit in Public event at a local winery, where we met up with friends, drank wine, and worked on our respective socks. This weekend I had the opportunity to go with my mom to her LYS, Laughing Sheep! We spent a while looking through this glorious stack of yarns, as well as all the other cubbies and shelves.

Mom goes to a weekly knitting group at the shop, and some of the local folks were there yesterday. It was nice to meet her group and show them what I've been working on, and I know she enjoyed showing *me* off to them! They're getting ready to do a knitalong for this amazing shawl, Butterfly/Papillon. I might have to borrow the pattern from her after she knits it... isn't this just beautiful?

This tonal turquoise yarn (Classic Elite Yuri, in colourway 5046) came home with me and is destined to be a part of the Twisted Stitches Sock Trilogy, which is still nameless. I'm a few pattern repeats into the second sock of the first pair, and really happy with the way it's coming out. It's been going quickly, so it shouldn't be long before I get to start this new yarn for the second design! (Hopefully I didn't jinx it by saying so...)

P.S. Apparently turquoise is a very difficult colour for a camera. My phone wouldn't accurately capture it so I got out the point-and-shoot, which also had troubles. The yarn showed up as far more blue than it actually is, and I had to do a lot of fiddling with the settings to get a good representation of the colour. Any advice on this subject is definitely welcome!
