Eye Candy Friday!

It's that time, yes sharing all the eye candy I have for the week, or rather the eye candy I have yet to share. 

So, in quick fashion, he we go...

First up, Zitron Trekking Hand Art Color Sock yarn in "Columbo" for the Zitron Trekking KAL in May 2011.

Zitron Trekking Hand Art Color Sock Yarn "Columbo" KAL May 2011

Is it not superb?  Very colorful, but in a refreshing sort of way.  I'm excited to see how these socks turn out.  It's nice to knit a color out of my comfort zone sometimes. 

Next are these adorable, versatile, and portable Lantern Moon clamshell purses.

I had previously used a small tin box, the kind you get at fabric stores that when you first purchase them only has a few small spindles of thread.  That kinda worked, but it was super loud with all my notions banging around in it.  And it wasn't very friendly to some of my special stitch markers.  When I saw these little purses, I was sold!  I love that they fit into each other, oh, and again I picked them up at the LYS (Green Planet Yarn),  that I work at.  Like I said before, such great notions there. 

Now to my circular needle storage, this baby I picked up awhile ago, have yet to use (because I just haven't found the time to organize), but I love it!  It is a black Namaste Circular case.

It's got tabs and everything for storing circs, and let me tell you, I have circs, too many.

Last, but certainly not least is "Hither" my recent shipment of Hello Yarn Fiber and quickly becoming my fave colorway.

That's it for sweets, enjoy your weekend, relax, knit, do what you enjoy best.
