I have now recovered

nicely from that nasty case of Romantica and I am now listening to books by James Rollins where the men are manly and the women are deadly. This is the author that wrote the story/script for the fourth Indiana Jones movie.
While recovering I managed to buy a lot of Posh Yarn that is seriously addictive and I also completed the first 10 kilometers in the Eat.Sleep.Knit yarn marathon. This marathon is just my kind of sport so no wonder I am currently in first place and I even got a badge to prove it!

Between shopping sprees I have managed to knit Laminaria from Knitty, and it looks wonderful even unblocked. I knit it with Baby Lucia from Posh Yarn and this yarn is turning out to be one of my absolute favorites.

I am now knitting Mrs. Lamberts stole from Victorian Lace Today while waiting for David I NZ to get his yarn so we can start our mini KAL, knitting the Knitted Veil from VLT.
I am also going to do the Swallowtail KAL with my Posh Yarn group on Ravelry and I have the yarn and the beads picked out.

To enable all this yarn buying I have been destashing like mad on Ravelry, purging my stash of everything that I am never going to use and turn the money from that into yarn I will love and it has been a great success so far.
