i finally finished the scarf at friday night knitting.
and started this:
and finished it:
look familiar? the green is my self-striping experiment yarn! see this post.
it was awesome to knit up- the handspun was so light and slippery. i didn’t want the gold to overpower the green so i only purled one row of it. it needs to be felted down a little since it doesn’t fit even me. i have a small head, but i think celia’s is probably even smaller – she’s teeny.
i hung out with stephanie last night and today. we went to far north yarn co. to further deplete my christmas credit and give sydney a little taste of the yarn store.
i have a few things cookin’. excited about starting a hat for buku – i never make him anything and always feel bad! i picked out some manly colors and will do a hat like the one above. the blue is for though.
one of my first posts was of this cardigan for sydney:
she was a big baby at birth and grew out of it so fast! she is 3 and a half months old.
on the bobbins:
i took all of my yarn off today, except the unfinished one. i got 220 yards from the baby alpaca/bombyx. it’s gorgeous. i also unwound 165 yards of worsted superwash mixed with exotic sparkly angora. i have one more bobbin full that i will unwind tomorrow. i will post pictures when they are both dry.
i’m going to crochet this into a scarf today. it is the yarn that i dyed with koolaid a while back. it is so pretty and sparkly. i’m making it for my cousins daughter who is super cute and hopefully girly. this is really girly yarn!
