I am (not) so patiently waiting for a delivery of 19 skeins of Purewool! This was a co-op order, and i placed the order so long ago that i have since forgotten what i ordered! It will be like Christmas morning all over again when it arrives.
Add that to some yummy yarns i have been scoring here and there, and you have the makings of a spring and summer full of to-die-for shorties!
Be on the look out for some stash pictures coming soon!

As seen in The Twilight Saga: New Moon...
I used worsted and a size 7 11' circular. You can do magic loop, two circs or DPNs as you would like!
Cast on in multiples of 6... 30, 36, or 42 stitches.
place a marker and join in a round
Work 15 rounds of 3x3 rib.
Work 20 rounds of stockinette
Starting on stitch one, turn and purl back to the last stitch before the marker.
Turn and knit back to the first stitch.
Work back and forth knitting one row and purling the next for 10 or so more rows, ending with a purl row (make sure you slip the first stitch in each row for a neater look.)
Join back in the round (i k2tog to get a tighter join... if you do this you will need to increase one stitch anywhere in the next round.)
knit one or two rounds.
Work 12 rows of 3x3 rib
BO in 3x3 rib
