Second Mystery, or, May 1st came Early

So, I guess I'll come right out and say what the second Mystery Project was/is. I was test knitting again!

The pattern I was test knitting this time is Nebula (Rav link). We test knitters were originally given May 1st as it's release date, but we were just told that Nebula was a pattern for the Loopy Ewe Spring Fling! Cookie A mentioned that she'll be getting this pattern available online in May. While I don't have both socks completed as of now, I do have the Right sock finished and I'm a couple inches into the Left sock. This pattern is a lot of fun to knit, but it made me VERY, VERY happy that I know how to cable without a cable needle.

I have another mystery....

...however, this one I'll be able to tell you about on May 1st. If you LOVE knitting socks, I promise, you are going to LOVE this :) What I can go ahead and tell you about? Well, I can tell you about the yarn I choose to use for it. A few months ago, I bought some Dragon Feet yarn from Cables & Lace in the Goth Girl Violet colorway, and OMG I fucking LOVE it. It is *the* perfect shade of purple for me, and the silk content adds that sheen I love and drool worthy softness. Yum yum yum yum yum :)

Mystery Finished!

The Mystery sample knitting project is FINISHED!!!! I still can't tell more about that project, but I had a lot of fun knitting it. I'll be shipping it off to the designer tomorrow (Monday).

Now I get to work on Vivian again. :) Plus, I'm planning on knitting a small case for my laptop. Any ideas or favorite pattern suggestions? Anything goes :D
