OK Karen, the yarn from The Loopy Ewe. From The Knittery in the Grace colorway. A very yummy, Merino / Cashmere blend. I love it! I can't wait until they get more in! It is very soft and the colors are beautiful. I haven't decided on a pattern for this one yet. And the yarn from Stone Barn Fibers in the Lamurple colorway. I love that name. 100% Superwash Merino, they still have a few colors left in this yarn, but not this color... sorry. My two girls are fighting over this. Silly, silly, girls, this is for me, me , me. And, I have never knit with OnLine sock yarn before, so I thought I would give it a try. This is one of the Highlander colorways. I started this one before the others because I was sick all weekend, and didn't have the energy to stand up let alone wind any yarn. I spent Mother's Day/ my Birthday in bed, coughing and aching, and running a fever of 102. I am still coughing and aching but no more fever and chills. The school year can't end soon enough for me, then my kids will stop bringing home every bug that is going around.
I have also knit another baby hat for The Loopy Ewe Quarterly Challenge. It is knit in a 100% merino yarn, nice and soft for a baby head. After I get a few more of these finished I will mail them in. I wish I had a baby head to put it on, it is a pill box style with a flat top. None of DD2 dolls have big enough heads to model it properly. Those AG dolls and bitty babies have small heads.And, I finally finished the hat and mittens for SWTC. Kat says it is OK to show them and advertise. They are knit in Gianna, in the Falling Rain colorway. These were fun to knit. I just need to finish typing up the pattern, and mail them in. It is taking awhile for them to dry since they are so thick, but this yarn is so soft, esp after it is washed.
Well that is all I have to show today. It is so nice here today, cool and breezy. I am glad to be able to wear my handknit socks. I even got to wear the ones Karen made for me yesterday. Soon it will be way too warm for that. Happy knitting everyone.
