delayed yarn pictures

This is the yarn that I purchased at The Yarn Shop in Columbus, Ohio. Yes, it was awhile ago. Top picture is Plymouth Yarns Boku. It's a varigated yarn with long color changes, similiar to Noro, but not quite as vivid colors. I want to play with it and see. Middle is the Manos Silk blend, from manos del Uruguay. It's only 150 yds, but oh so nice. I've been pondering what to make of it, and I think it's going to be a pair of wristwarmers for me. Maybe Fetching (I haven't tried that pattern) or maybe Voodoo. Bottom is Arucania Ranco Multi, a fingering wt sock yarn. I'm getting tired of my current socks, and I'm looking forward to starting one of Cat Bordhi's patterns with this.

And also here, is a picture of Little G playing with one of the skeins of Boku. Future Knitter in training!

On the current knitting projects, the Big Grey Blob is getting bigger and blobbier (I am so afraid the shoulder decreases aren't going to work, and I'll have to rip this section out. If I do, it's going back into hibernation for awhile.) I'm 3 inches away from finishing the current pair of socks, and I won a blue ribbon at the county fair for Little J's Jaker sweater!
