some strange music draws me in makes me come on like some heroin/e

No update pictures today - I can't seem to devote enough time to one project long enough to show any progress - that of course did not stop me from adding to my overflowing stash of yarn and patterns. After meeting with the new account manager, I walked over to Purl and spent the last of my Amex gift check and the money I earned doing a massage treatment last week.

Behold the fruits of my labors:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hostingthe KSH for my likker'd up granny cardigan - I am having a really hard time not spending all day fondling this yarn - it is addictive, my preciousssss.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting I also picked up 2 patterns the Rockstar Cardigan from Alchemy and a silk alpaca babushka from macandme that I think will look beautiful in the Brooks Farm yarn I picked up at Rhinebeck last year, and 2 skeins lorna's laces for a neck wrap.

I have made a deal with myself that as soon as I finish the black stole for my co-worker, I can start swatching the KSH, that should motivate me to finish the stole quickly

Love the idea of a licker'd up granny! (maybe it reminds me of family parties as a child:))The yarn is a great choice. I'm looking forward to seeing the boobalicious tank as it's high on my list of things to make from BGK.

Does the mohair in KSH shed? I used some brooks farm mohair for a scarf once and it shed so much i can hardly wear it now. since then i've stayed away from mohair. but this project and the yarn sound great.

I love the Rock Star Cardigan. I think I have to go pick up that pattern.

you have no idea how darn addictive the KSH really is. Just wait until you start working with it! For awhile, all my proposed sweater designs were using KSH. I knew I had to stop.

This is my first visit to your blog. I love the color of the KSH for you likker'd up granny cardigan. I have never worked with it before. What color name/number is that in your picture? It is really beautiful.
