Bitten Off More Than I Can Chew?

Hi everyone!  I am sorry I am a day late in posting.....It has been a crazy week.  This past weekend we went to Rockport and I did not take my laptop and very rarely checked my phones!  It was great!

I have quite a few stash enhancements.  After Finishing Celeste's sweater last week, I decided I wanted to make her and Cataleya matching coats/jackets.....I want to make it look like Elsa's Coronation dress (from the movie Frozen).  I picked the Three Tier Coat/Jacket pattern.....I want to do it 3 colors like this one:

My Colors (that pink has a bit more purple in it)

I also got in some yarn for the Reine Cardigan for Paige:

I ordered some fiber to practice spinning:

And, I had a friend on Ravelry contact me that she has some Miss Babs in an orange that is like a Texas Orange.....and she was right.....It is perfect Longhorn Orange!  Thank you Debbie for the yarn and the cute little Eiffel Tower Keychain!  You are the greatest!

My Miss Babs Destination 1 yarn came in....we are going to Sri Lanka.....I forgot to take a picture of my extras (candy, elephant stitch marker, tea)....but I do love this yarn.  The pattern (called Ves) shows two colors....I really liked the red/pink better (and I got the blueish/turquoise)....so I ordered the red pink and I think Darlene will want to buy my blue/teal/turquoise one!

I finally got the District 12 colorway of yarn from Brazen Stitchery....one is mine and one is Darlene's

I also got some yarn to make a hat for Paige...it is Blue Sky Alpaca Suri Merino.

And, I got some new pajama pants....I love these (I got Darlene a pair too)....I love them so much, I ordered myself a second pair because I know I am going to wear these out.  I saw them posted on Instagram and had to buy them!

Lastly, I got a YarnIt....I have not started using it yet, but I am anxious to try it.

I think that might be it for the enhancements.....well, I may have one or two more...but will save them till next week.

Now....what did I knit on?  Well, do you remember that Weigh It Shawl where I ran out of yarn and used black?  I super sweet person on Ravelry had some left over Volcanic Eruption and sent it to me...so I tinked the picot bind off (yes, it was a pain) and re-bound off with the correct yarn and I am soooooo happy with it!

 I started a "secret" project....I will show you a picture of the yarn I am using and the beginning....I cannot wait to show you the whole thing...but it will be a few weeks.

You know that yarn I posted above to make a hat for Paige.....well, I finished it!  It was a complete surprise for her and she was not wild about the color....so I am making a 2nd one in red....she went to Tinsmith's wife to get the red yarn for me (Blue Sky Alpaca) and I need to finish it by Friday because she leaves for Colorado on Saturday...and she wants the hat for Colorado.....the picture of the hat on my head shows the color the best.

While Paige was at Tinsmith's Wife, she found some bed socks she wants me to make her and she picked up Madeline Tosh Dandelion Yarn for me to make them for her.

I worked on my rainbow socks a little

And, I started some new socks with Dragonfly Fibers Djinni Sock yarn.....these are for a Hiya Hiya KAL

That about does it......Yes, I know....I got lots of yarn this week....that is why I feel like I have bitten off more than I can chew with everything I want to make....and I want to make it NOW!

Anyway, my little Antonio has been sick, so I wanted to share a couple of pictures of him yesterday with the new legos Ga-Ma got him...I know he does not look 'sick', but it is a stomach bug...

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
