When LaVerna sent the birthday package I showed yesterday, she included a small sample of Merino Bamboo roving that Funky Carolina had included in her order. I spun it yesterday. I'm hooked. This yarn is lusciously soft with a subtle sheen. I must get more, but I must resist. The roving stash is starting to take over in the same way the yarn has.
There are only about 10 yards here. The big question is do I want to knit something with this or just enjoy it for what it is?
I've got another FO. These were so close to being done for a long time. I finally decided to finish them off while we watched Planet Earth the other night.
The thing about Socks That Rock is that if you get bored with the cables and only make the legs of your socks 4" long, you end up with enough yarn for another pair. So much for stash busting.

I've added a new pattern to my sidebar. It's the scarf I made for my blogless friend Susan back in February. I blogged about it here. I'm calling it the Rickenbacker Scarf, since that's the bass that I posed the scarf with for the photo shoot. The juxtaposition of the sugary sweet scarf with this classic rocker bass just works for me.
Tomorrow I drive with my parents to NC, where they will be re-locating. It's going to be a difficult time for me. I'm so spoiled by having lived so close to them for so many years. I'll really miss them. The move should be for the best for them. My sister lives there, she has lots of connections in the medical field in the area where they will live. She knows how to get the kind of care that my father needs.
