Another pair of socks & a LOT of yarn.

 Some more Jaywalkers.  This time in Noro Kureyon Sock.  I rewound the ball as per usual for sockie #2 so the "pattern" would go the other way.  For some unknown reason the blue decided to land in the same spot for both socks.  I quite like it though ...

I've had a couple of small "accidents" with my credit card and Bendigo Woollen Mills' sale.  Third time's the charm - I really fell off the wagon this time!  That's one of my dining chairs the package is leaning on for scale.

And inside:

Some light silver 5ply Classic for a cardi I have in mind (the short sleeved version).
And a few more balls of some Rustic in colour Damson.  No definite plans, I'm making a Tappan Zee & was worried I'd run out.  I'm loving the colour (it has slightly different hues to it - it's a purple with reddy tinges).  When I rang to ask if they had any more balls in the same dyelot the words "I'll have 10 balls of that please" were out of my mouth almost before I knew what had happened.  Can yarn fumes affect you over the phone?!
And yes, they are 200 gram balls!
