I-Cord Crazy Cast Ons

Hello everyone....I hope you had a fabulous week!  I did!

Last week I told you that i had some more hedgehog fiber yarn on the way.....well, I may have a "Small Hedgehog Fibers Problem":

So, this is what I had BEFORE:

Then I had this delivered:

 Another Graphite (I already had one)
 2 more Film Noir (I already had 2)
 Another Typewriter (I already had one):
 Boom Box (New to me)
 Another Crystal (I already had one)
 Cinder (new to me)
 Teacup (new to me)

So now I have all of this and I have no clue what I am going to make but I know I love them all:

I got some of the Hedgehog yarn from a yarn shop called The Knitting Bee....they packaged the yarn very nicely with some gummy bears....Yum!

I got some cookie press is a sheep, one is a yarn ball and one is a button....they are really cute and also came packaged very nicely!

So, I made some yarn ball cookies :)

I also ordered some natural colored Wollmeise Worsted Weight yarn....I had never seen this yarn for sale before (ravelry says it is discontinued)....I got approx 1,300 yards....I am not sure what I will make with it....but I was thinking of possibly trying to dye it or seeing if a friend can....and then maybe making a cardigan with it....or maybe holding two strands together and making Superbulky Grandpa sweater...they were only about $5 a if I can make a sweater with it, that is like a  $30.00 sweater :)

My roommate, Carol, did a bunch of crawling during the Hill Country Yarn Crawl this past week.  Well, she got me 2 skeins of yarn from Yarn Carnival.....this yarn screams Carrie and I love it.  Thank you so much Carol....Now I need to find the perfect pattern for them!

My last stash Apple Watch.  I have wanted one since they came out....and now I got the version 2....I got the black stainless steel....if they would have had black in aluminum, I would have gotten that one, but they only had space grey (the darkest) and I really wanted black...I cannot decide if I love it as much as it costs....LOL!  I am trying to get used to it...but I just do not know how it all works yet so I may need to watch a tutorial. for the knitting.:

I FINISHED MY CELESTARIUM!  I finished this in 29 days (WOW)!  I am pretty stinking proud of it!  I really, really, really loved knitting on this....that is probably why I finished it in 29 days!

I worked on my socks too....they are almost done...just a little more on one sock and then cuffs for both socks and I am done....shouldn't take too much longer!

Then I must have been in an i-cord mood....because I did 3 of them.  I cast on for that sweater that Paige wants....I am trying to design it as I go....which is proving more difficult than I thought....I have started both front panels...they start with some i-cord casting on.

Then I decided to start a brioche the Stephen West Mystery KAL (called Building blocks) they are doing brioche during this week's a couple of my friends are talking about I wanted to join in, but not sure I am ready to cast on the Mystery KAL I started Briochevron by Stephen West with Biscotte yarn in Charbon (black) and my lips sock blank from far I am loving it....and it is part of the KAL in the Bags By Awesomegrannie forum where you can do any Stephen West Pattern.  #bagkal2016-4  This one starts with an i-cord and then you pick up stitches.....

Well, I think that is all I have.....I leave you with....

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!!!
