How cute is this!

 

Isn't this little scarf from Knitty just adorable! 150 yards each in two colors of Rowan Wool Cotton (or any sport or dk weight yarn you like), and one ball Kidsilk Haze. I love the pink, but you could do it in whatever colors you like. Great gift too.

Coffee for Ewe

We had fun Friday - Becky and Shawn stopped by for coffee on their way to the Knitter's Review Retreat. Duffy's making good progress on the "floofy" cardigan for her granddaughter, and Heather learned to bind off. A successful morning, I'd say.

Bunny hat


Jamie loved the little bunny hat in Rowan's wool cotton from Stitch 'n Bitch Nation. Baby Michael will be so adorable. We just got pink wool cotton. Anyone have a baby girl to knit for in the near future?

Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride


Ordered this stuff last Summer (2004!!) and it's finally here. Worth the wait, I'd say. Single ply - touch of mohair, and a joy to work with. And it felts like a dream. Try it in felted clogs - there's still a couple of openings in that class.

Viking lust

This isn't a new book, but it's new in the shop Best of Knitters Arans & Celtics. Oh, boy do I love this book. Fell in love with Viking Turid by Elsebeth Lavold. Just ordered her Silky Wool and Angora for the shop. I know a bag of rose Silky Wool destined for Viking Turid!

If only I could decide what to do with the 6 balls of cherry Kidsilk Haze.

Jeweled tank from Knitty - two strands, size 8 needles, 6 skeins
Lace overblouse - my design - one strand, size 6 needles 6 skeins

hmmm.
