Fiberlicious Friday and other stuff


Guess what I found?


Well, honestly it was
Auntie Carol's super sleuthing skills that tracked it down but look what I got!

It's the much coveted Kureyon #91!! Friday Fiber, yarn pr0n and a happy FKDeb all in one shot! YAY!

Thanks for doing such great PI work Carol!



I started a new sock.....


This is the beginning of the Go With The Flow socks by Evelyn Clark from IK's Favorite Socks.

I'm using some well marinated Elann Sock it to Me Colori because it's so PINK :)

This is a gift for a professional colleague who's been very kind to me, especially when I lost my Dad last December. She of course knows I knit and I told her I'd really love to knit her some socks. She loved the idea so when I asked her what color, after much thought she came up with BLACK. Um, no way! Ok then how about navy? Um, PASS!

I told her she must expand her color horizions and where better to do it than on one's feet (that don't even have to been seen in public if that's your choice!) So she chose pink....little did she know she was getting PINK!! But they are really cute and it's a cool pattern so I think she won't freak out too much, I hope! :)

I finished Bonita and she's gorgeous! She's blocked and drying as I write this (boy do I *hate* blocking, but I *love* the result) and when she's dry I'll just need to do a bit of finishing and she'll be ready for her debut.

Here's a little teaser showing some Bonita knitting and knails.....


That's another OPI color, called You Red My Mind! Doesn't it look great with Bonita?

Lastly but never least, I leave you with another gorgeous pic of the P-Man sitting on his throw rug "throne".


Enjoy your weekend!

Ooo! What nice socks! If anyone can infuse color into someone's life , it's you! Your knails look maaavelous! And I really can't wait for Bonita's debut! When you were looking for the Noro, I went straight to the stash thinking I had it, but I had 92, and what a world of difference in colors! Anyhoo, I'm left just dreaming of petting the P-Man. He looks prety deep in thought there :)

AmyP said...

That is PINK sock yarn, isn't it?!
Looking forward to seeing Bonita finished.

Leslie said...

Boy are you one lucky woman to have your own private detective on yarn alert!

Looking forward to seeing Bonita and the knext knail color.

Margene said...

Ooo, LOVE that red!

Carole Knits said...

That's great that you hooked up with the Noro! Love that new OPI red.

Agnes said...

You found it! Great! I have some "well marinated" Elann sock yarns in my stash too. Always want to use them ...
I love the royal highness look of P-man's photo today. :)

Kristi aka Fiber Fool said...

Yeah, I'm so glad you got your Noro!

Nice nails!

La Cabeza Grande said...

Outstanding, all: the hard-to-find Noro, re-knit but worth it Bonita and those Red, Red Nails!

Snuggles to the P-Man, too.

Kim said...

The socks are so pretty, but the P-man steals the show. He is one of the prettiest cats I have ever seen.

KnitNana said...

I think I have that sock yarn! LOL! It's THAT pink! ;)
And the OPI color is close to the Orly Monroe's Red I'm wearing...
(Sistahs under the skin?)
lolol
P-Man is gorgeous (of course...)
Happy Friday!
(((hugs)))

Cookie said...

Love the pink and the knails!

And the P-Man of course.

Happy Weekend!

Opal said...

So glad you found the Noro! The sock looks really promising, as does Bonita. Your knails are divine, girl!

Nose kisses to the P-Man!

Beth said...

I knit most of a Go With the Flow sock once. How much do you want to bet it's still laying around here somewhere? (with needles still in it!) LOL

alt.ayu said...

Ooooh! I love the OPI~! they have such great colors!~ :)

hooray for the Noro find! :)

Batty said...

Pretty yarn! And that OPI looks gorgeous. I absolutely love their colors. Now I have to let my nails grow again.

Dame Wendy said...

Now that is PINK. Love it!

I'm so glad you got the needed noro you were looking for. :) I can't wait to see Bonita and the nails are just fabulous.

My co-worker thinks P-Man is the cutest cat ever. I agree but shhhh Dickens would be so jealous! ;)

La said...

Blue is definitely P-man's color!

Donna said...

I knew I had some Kureyon in the stash, and 91 sounded familiar, but when I finally found it, it was #90. I'm glad you found some :)

Rhonda the Stitchingnut said...

Happy you got your Noro K #91. And I think those are going to be some very pretty socks there. I also believe in lots of color on the feet ... wait, I probably wear it all over, but feet first. ;-)

kimberly said...

Oh how I love red nails!! My toes are red right now but they don't look that good. :) I too can't wait to see Bonita.
