I have two FO's to show off this morning! First, I finished my Shiatsu legwarmers - they are blocking as I type! I'm pretty happy with how they turned out - They should be great to wear with skirts in the next few weeks. I have to say, I'm very impressed with the yarn I used from Knit Picks - it knit up quite nicely and now that it's blocked, it's even softer and squishier! I'll definitely be using this yarn again.

Yarn: Knit Picks Gloss DK in Robot (3 skeins) - a lovely (and affordable) merino/silk blend!
Nina to snag one more skein of Twist. Of course, I had two stripes to go on the last arm and ran out of Rios. Noooooo! Why must the yarn gods be punishing me? After some initial panic, I thought I remembered seeing a tiny little bit of Rios somewhere in the house. A fruitless 30-minute search ensued, and then an impassioned plea for someone to send a few leftover bits my way via snail mail. And then, as I was digging through my Malabrigo bin to start another monster using leftover skeins (do I ever learn??), that tiny bit of Rios came tumbling out!
