I had planned on casting this on today, while still high off finishing my first pair of 2-at-a-time/magic loops socks this weekend....
 Short row scarf from

I'm going to make it with this yarn I picked up my new favorite yarn store Smiley's in Queens.
It's about an hour away and it's only open on Fridays and Saturdays, but dang if it wasn't worth the trip!!

  ... this is a great looking and feeling yarn that was 2.99 a skein... I got the whole bag of about 450+ yards  for 10 bucks!!  Anywhere else, each skein would have been anywhere from 5-8$ a piece, right?

Unfortunately, I realized I don't have the right size needle.  Looks like I need to make a quick trip to P&S Fabrics tomorrow to pick up some circular 11's.

Then, score of all scores... I picked up these beauties...

 ..... 2.99 a skein!.... 50/50 Merino and Silk!!....I <3 Smiley's.... seriously!!

I plan on making this lovely piece of knitted... loveliness... with my score.

It's the #11 Feather Stole by Irina Shabayeva that was featured in the Fall'10 issue of Vogue Knitting....Loovveee. It......... now, I'm not saying I will be able to make it anytime soon, but it's in my queue!

Your Smiley's purchases look awesome. Great Deals!!! Woohoo!

I must say, I started stranded knitting with that hat I started when you visited my house, and I am hooked. I am almost finished with that hat, it's going so fast. I will suggest getting a yarn guide to put on your finger if you knit continental. It keeps the tension even, and prevents tangles. I got mine from KnitPicks, but you never know, maybe P&S has one. I can't wait to see it once you start.
