I've had some great news today! I'm not sure if I can talk about it yet. I think I probably can but just in case all I'll say is that I've had a pattern accepted for publication by a well known online knitting mag. And I'm so excited.

I promised I'd share some pics of my Ally Pally haul. I'm so keen to start knitting with some of it but I've got lace and another secret project to finish first, then there are the Sockamania pattern for November. I've decided on the pattern for Sockamania November socks and have done a swatch. Still not sure about yarn colour for the PLUS club but I've got some ideas. I'm really keen to cast on but my lace project needs to be finished before I start anything else. I'm hoping ot finish the main panel of the lace project tonight or tomorrow then it's just the border to go but borders seem to take forever sometimes.

And here are the promised pics:

4 mini skeins of silk laceweight, 2 different weights, 2 skeins of each, from 21st Century yarns:

Natural Dye Studio BFL sock yarn - just couldn't resist:
Hip Knits Silk/bamboo:
Bamboo lace:
Knitwitches Silk Camel:
Panda Soy sock yarn - have wanted to try this yarn for ages:
Touch Yarns Lace - just had to have this colour:
Handmaiden Camelspin:

Any guesses what my favorite colours are and my favorite fiber blends? LOL. Not a difficult guess is it.

These are so beautiful! Yeah, I can see what your favorite colour is. :-) Mine is green, by the way, in case you are wondering what colour you would choose for the sock club plus. This is no hint at all.
