On the needles

 New yarn (upper right)for clogs arrived and you know if you order a bunch you get free shipping so I had to order a bunch. Lower left is yarn left over from the over felted slippers but there is enough there for one pair if  I blend the yarn since the patterns calls for a double strand of yarn. There is enough yarn for 4 pairs of slipper clogs.
I found yarn for a top down cable sweater and more sock yarn at my favorite shop.  I'm ready for the super bowl and Olympic knitting.
Hubby and I prepped for the Olympics by watching Miracle I never get tired of that movie and made lots of progress on the socks while watching, finally when I start the gusset the colors start pooling. If the leg of the sock is as boring as the foot for color changes I think I will try a cable just to get the gist of how it is done before I start the sweater.
And these are finished so all the socks started in 2013 are done. January has been a finish it month now February begins with new projects.  Check out On the Needles at Judy's. Happy knitting--Ann--

Your clog yarn colors are just lovely. And your socks are great! I am not excited about the Olympics... yet. Hopefully once they start, I'll be ready. Happy knitting!

Nothing like new yarn to get motivated on a new project. Such pretty combinations you have there.

Looks like you're going to be very busy with some fun projects.

Plenty of yarn there to keep you busy for a while I'd say! The red and grey socks are looking good, I really like that yarn.
