Much Dreaming, Not Much Knitting

We had friends over for dinner last night so I didn't get any knitting completed. We had a couple over who just moved to our small town in Texas from Germany and before that Copenhagen, Denmark. Let's just say that they are having some culture shock...

What did happen yesterday is a nice package in the post! I received two copies of a knitting book for Christmas, so I returned one to Amazon and ordered a few more things:

And of course I needed some yarn to get those socks started:

I am very excited about the self patterning sock yarn. I think it will be nice for the simple sock pattern in Folk Socks book.

After I finish the poncho this weekend, I'm going back to the Shawl. I think I will use a lifeline ever increase or two--probably the dental floss that Maureen suggests. I also need to recheck my gauge--I think the lace might be a little too holey, suggesting my gauge is off. If I can do both the lifeline and the gauge check, I might have something to show on Monday! I keep reminding myself that once I make one full lace project, the next will be a little easier~!
