I got some scholarship money in and, after paying all the necessary stuff, put some aside for Stitches South in April. I knew that there were a few patterns that I wanted to buy, so shopped a little yesterday with some of that fiber money.
I just found out that I'm going to be an aunt this fall... my SIL (Shawn's brother's wife) is pregnant with their first and is due in September. Baby knitting! I ordered the Baby Surprise Jacket pattern, which I plan on making in some superwash handspun I get at Stitches.
I also got two Morehouse Merino patterns... that Alligator Scarf and the RatRace Scarf.
The Knit Picks Interchangeable Circular set! My circular needle collection was seriously lacking (and I prefer circs to straights) and I went ahead and ordered this set. It was a tough buy since it's a little pricey (though definitely cheaper then purchasing the circs separately), but I had set this money aside for fiber goods and I think that this is the smartest purchase I could make. I'm so excited! I also ordered bamboo dpns in US 3, 5, 6 and 10. I wanted 7 as well, but they were out. Everything was shipped today and should arrive in a week or two. Yipee!
