Okay...there's a reason I haven't been blogging...

...and that reason is this:

I've been working on the beaded fringe for my stole. I have less than two weeks until Phantom of the Opera (at which I wish to wear said stole) and I am madly trying to finish this. I have not been able to vacuum my apartment for fear of sucking up the many beads that I have scattered on the floor (not intentionally), so I really hope I finish this soon.

I figure I should probably post a pic of my Campanula WIP:

I have finished turning the heel and am now making my way up the leg. I am hoping to have them finished by the end of the week.

This morning my boyfriend left me his bank card and told me to go spoil myself. I didn't really think too much about his reasons why, I just ran with it...

...straight to Yarn Forward:

I bought:
Sock yarn: (from top to bottom): Lana Grossa Meilenweit Colortweed #1009, Super Soxx Color #630.0067, Lana Grossa Meilenweit Tweed #135; a 3.5mm 80 cm circular needle for the Fall Turtleneck I'm designing; a mini sweater key chain; and the latest issue of Knitter's Magazine.

Then I bought a few more things (but these we can both enjoy):

The second seasons of The Muppet Show (I love Kermit!), and CSI: New York. The Tinker Toys are for me to attempt to make my own swift. ($17.99 vs. $65+) We will see how that goes.

Last but not least I received my latest order from The Loopy Ewe:

Happy Anniversary to Ewe from J Knits (sorry guys it was a limited edition yarn); a pattern specially made for the yarn; and Sheri added a row marker (you can kind of see it on the page).
I am really excited because my next order gives me Loopy Groupy status. I can't wait!

Well that's the update. Now it's back to beading.

That fringe looks terribly difficult. I can understand why it takes up so much time.

The socks are looking great and it looks like lots of lovely treats for you.

Have fun at Phantom! :) That's a beautiful stole!
