Sunday!I am so excited today because I have a finished object to show off....I finished my Annie sweater for sweet little Grandy, Millie. I could not be happier with how it turned out and am dying to give it to her. But alas, she lives 3 hours away and I did decide to make this a Christmas present. Georgie, (aka Tikki, on Ravelry) has done it again with a gorgeously written pattern.
(I apologize in advance for the loads of photos--what can I say? I am in love with this sweater!)
In other knitting news, I have some new goodies to show you. I started another Christmas present-this time for my son's sweet little girlfriend. I think this mitt pattern, Barista Mitts, is so cute, and this yarn, which I purchased from a clearance bin is so, so soft.
The other excitement is the beautiful gray Quince and Company Finch (fingering) which arrived the mail yesterday. This lovleyness is destined to become the baby hat I am making for my friend to give to her first grandchild. So far, based just on touching and squeezing this yarn, I just may have found my new go-to yarn! And the price is so reasonable too.
The third beautiful thing I have to share is this yarn I purchased while knitting at my local yarn store on Friday.
Schoppel Leinen Los--I think it is 70% wool and 30% linen-- and is the same color as the sheep it came off of. The main body of the scarf will be in the gray and the off-white will be the border section--the name it will officially have on Ravelry is Barnyard Scarf-
In other news.....some of you may remember my posts last January,documenting the terrible ice storm which held us in its grip...I posted several photos of our ice encased trees, this Italian Prune Plum tree being one of them.
And in case you missed my announcement last week, I am going to be a Mimi again!! My daughter is due with #3 in early May and I am dying to find out what gender so I know what to start knitting!
Have a super week everyone~~~
