Pure Bliss!


I have 8 balls of this. I'm thinking a vest maybe. Unless anyone out there has 5 more balls in color 11, dye lot 62597. I'd love to make the Lara sweater from the Alpaca Silk book. But I need 13 skeins. I'm looking to come close to the dyelot.
This color is so rich and the yarn is about the softest thing I have ever knit with. I cannot have it languish in the stash for too long!

We Have Hats…

Bubble Wrap Cap in SWS
Bubble Wrap Cap in Patons Soy Wool Stripes. Nice pattern, Lark's Heart !

Favorite Scarf Hat
Favorite Scarf Hat - needs a bit of elastic thread around the rim. It's a little baggy after blocking. But it's warm and comfy and it matches my favorite scarf.

Be an m-and-m

I'm back walking after a week of migraine headache. 3.796 miles and "baby it's cold outside!" Here's some inspiration! Go be an m and m!

And I just got back from Tuesday Morning with a haul of yarn I didn't need. Photos to come!

Why do cats do this?

My Favorite Scarf

My favorite scarf

I made this one 3 years ago and it's my favorite. Lion Woolspun,(now discontinued :() Candy FX, Caron jewel box, lazer FX, Splash, and a linen/flax blend.

I had just enough left for a hat. Which I will photograph soon. Just have to get through this headache. Day 4. This has really screwed with my walking. I have a grand total of 0 miles walked this week. ZERO. Ah well, I'll get back on track next week. In spite of the headache We managed to get all the college apps in, and finish the Eagle requirements, and file the FAFSA (required for any type of financial aid for college) and finish the taxes. Oh, and my son turned 18 yesterday! Whoopeeee!
