Answer to comment question about toddler socks I am using Knitting Pure and Simple Basic lightweight infant/toddler Sock from Simply Sock Yarn. Once I have finished the second of the ankle pair in Tofutsies I will post those shots.

Almost all set for the hogwarts SockSwap, have the yarn, the markers, the needles, now I have to decide on a pattern. Have it narrowed down to 3.

Picked up a kitchen scale. A nice Salter from Bed Bath and Beyond. I will definetly have enough to finish my Sock it to Me socks with about 10gms to spare, YEAH!!

I am on a yarn diet. It's official. No yarn until Stitches in October. Small caveat, unless I absolutely do not have anything that will work for a specific project, involving a swap or a gift for someone else. No new KALs if I don't have it in stock. Put the savings into PayPal and I should have a nice chunk for Market.
