Last week the mailman brought me a small package. I have been wanting to try this yarn. The colors are more green than the yellow I was expecting, you know that whole monitor thing, but it is soft and I have heard good things about it. I think I am going to knit the Cross Hatch Lace pattern from More SKS with this. I have a ton of things to knit before I knit this, but I went ahead and wound it. I knew I would be pressing my luck if I saved a bunch of yarn to take to Karen's for the next visit. I think my winding faerie may be on strike after the last visit.
I finished the little baby dress too. I finished it yesterday morning, the shower was yesterday evening. I was worried about it getting dry before I had to put it in the gift bag. I left it out for the hour drive up and put it in with the rest of the goodies before I went in, finally dry. It was oooed and awed over. I had a hard time letting that one go. It was an easy knit, I have no need for a baby dress, but there is just something so darn cute about all things baby sized. She loved the socks and the baby blanket too. I had a great time. I don't often go out with friends without the rest of the family, and the girls I work with are crazy. Get them all together and away from work, give a few of them a little wine, and it is a riot. I have not laughed so much in a long time.
Well I think that is it for today. I am going to sit and fondle the Alpaca. Happy Knitting!
