I got to open a gift early from Dan…
Dude! That’s cashmere!! I am so so so excited!! And, there’s a gift certificate to my favorite yarn store, Yarns Down Under. I’m thinking that I want to make a scarf and fingerless gloves for me.
I had been looking at Dee-Luxe or the Woven Cable Scarf or maybe even the irish hiking scarf…. ideas?? Help!
I finished up the knitting project gifts for those who (I hope) will appreciate it:
A scarf for my brother (Harlot’s pattern), a scarf for my cousin, and flower facecloths for my cousin and aunt. I had planned to make a few more items, but they didn’t pan out and / or I changed my mind about the recipient actually liking getting something handmade…
The mail came and brought goodies from The Loopy Ewe:
Carbon Dioxide – Interlacements Tiny Toes sock yarn.
Berry Sweet Georgia Yarn & Rainforest Fleece Artist Yarn
She also included a little sample card and a DPN inventory card – excellent. Everything was packed so lovely – will use them again!
We went out with my folks last night to see The Santaland Diaries – excellent! It’s going to be a busy weekend – party tonight, working then going to RI on Sunday, going to Long Island on Monday – but that is part of the fun!
