Finally a few FO's

Since startitis set in around mid-February, I have very few FO's to show for myself (not surprising).  Strangely, this did not keep me from some serious shopping at Stitches West.

 First the FO's: a beanie in San Jose Sharks colors, a scarf in San Francisco 49ers colors  (sense a theme here?), and as of this morning, a Clockwork Shawlette.  The first two were knit from Lorna's Laces Worsted in special Bay Area Pro Team colorways (they also have the Golden State Warriors, the SF Giants, Oakland A's, and Oakland Raiders) and were just a fun break from more serious knitting.
Zino, Silk Garden Sock
 The Clockwork was knit from Plymouth Zino in browns and Noro Silk Garden (dominant colors were fuschia, violet, and mustard).  This came out more rustic looking than I anticipated, but it was a pleasant surprise.  The fit is great, by the way.

As for shopping, I managed to buy fewer sweaters-to-be than last year (2 fewer) and half as many accesssories-to-be.

My guard must have been down due to feeling smug because I have since bought 2 more sweaters-to-be.
