Today’s loot! My order from Get Knitted arrived: the brand-new British knitting magazine Yarn Forward, Evelyn Clark’s Flower Basket Shawl and Clover Takumi Bamboo 80 cm circulars, 4 mm and 4.5 mm respectively. The 4.5 mm needles already hold a pattern swatch of the shawl in some leftover cotton from my dishcloth escapades. I’m using my brand new stitch markers to keep my place in the pattern, and it’s making it a lot easier to keep my place in the pattern. I’m really looking forward to starting this pattern for real, but it will have to wait until I can get the right yarn for it.

The Kool-Aid and the Pony DPNs were impulse buys on the way back from town. The DPNs are very heavy!
