Creating a stash

I was not happy with how Orangina was knitting up with the Shine Sport. It was looking "fuzzy", so I frogged it and ordered some Sonata from Elann. I loved the way this was knitting up with my Lelah-Penny top, so I ordered 3 colors. I am SO not a pack rat and have trouble keeping things I am not using, so this was a big step for me. I plan to keep all this yarn and hopefully knit up some surprises with it, since I am sure I ordered way more than I need for Orangina. Ms Marigold is planned next with the red, and perhaps a Ms Marigold for a friend (or two).

Here are the 21 balls I ordered.

Orangina was started and 4" completed using the dark purple (Victorian Grape).

In other knitting news, I made great progress on the Pea Pod Baby Set over the weekend. Only 1 sleeve left to go! Which is good, since the baby is coming very soon. We drove to Ohio for Katie (who taught me how to purl)'s wedding, so the drive gave me good knitting time. We stopped at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
