No Harm in Yarn

Can't we all just knit along?

2.03.2008

So, anyways...

I've been so busy that I haven't had much knitting to blog about. I did, however, get a great package in the mail from Knittin' Pretty. I won a random prize drawing from the Holiday KAL-CAL, and this was it!

How lucky am I? The gorgeous yarn is hand spun 100% Falkland Wool in "Happy Holidays". I think I might knit a Swiss Cheese Scarf with it. It's too pretty to be stuck on my feet! I'm assuming she made the adorable stitch markers too. Wasn't that the sweetest thing?

I've been knitting one of three future baby blankets. This one is The Basketweave Blanket in a cotton chenille I found on eBay. It's really very nice.

Also, I finished the SWS Seed Stitch Baby Sweater. I only have mediocre photos, but I'll post them anyhow!

I've spun a 2-ply yarn from a wool/mohair roving I purchased at the Berks County Heritage Festival 2 years ago( It came from the Aboundingful Farms booth). I really love the colors.
