Just so Tired.

I don't know if it was the trip away from home, or my med changes. I have been sooooo tired. Yesterday I took a 3 hour nap. Today I slept in 4 hours. Sigh and I am still tired. I hope this passes soon. So have not been getting much done because of the tired. Today I did just a couple of things, and then layed on the couch watching a movie (The Doors) and knitting. Here is what I am working on:

It is a pair of ankle socks made with Autumn House Farms sock yarn in Hattie's Zinnias colorway. I love the colors. They are so bright and pretty. My other socks in progress are also Autumn House Farms. They are heavy weight. Ok now on to Maryland Sheep and Wool. I had such a wonderful time. I left Friday and came home on Sunday. I went with a group of friends. Heather, Betsy, Leslie, Cheryl, and Yvonne. Unfortunately Cheryl had to go home early because of some health problems. We missed you Cheryl. I had such a good time with these ladies. Ok now on to the pics of the purchases:

First up from the Fold my Socks That Rock purchases. Let me tell you we got there at 8:20 on Saturday, and the line was already formed. I think we were maybe 20 or 25 in line! Just to get in and look at the yarn! Anyway Saturday I bought two skeins of Socks that Rock in medium weight. Fire on the Mountain and Cracked Canyon. Fire was a skien I had admired from online and just fell in love with in person. Cracked Canyon's colors were just so lovely I had to buy it. I stopped back at the Fold on Sunday which was kind of empty from the frenzy of Saturday. I spotted two skeins of Sock Candy. I had heard about this yarn, but never seen it or found how to order it. So yep I had to buy them both. I forget the colorways. So check it out!

Next up is some sock yarn and some lace weight from another of my favorited MDSW booths. Tess' Designer Yarns. I loved both of these colorways, so got one in sock weight and one in lace weight. The lace weight is also machine washable!

Some very pretty yarn from Brooks Farm is next. This is sock yarn in a silk/wool/viscose blend. I really liked this color. I think it is destined to be lacy knee or thigh high stockings.

A couple of "different" sock yarns to try. The new tofutsies with soy silk and chitin and some Regia Bamboo. I can't wait to try these out.

I had another picture from Sheep and Wool but it somehow dissapeared. I bought some lace weight Zepher Silk/wool blend in purple and some dpns in size 0000! Yep going to try some very tiny stitch socks.

Last but not least the newest books I bought. I got these last week at Barnes and Noble. I really like them both and hope to use some of the patterns in the near future.
