For Christmas, my daughter gave me this lovely skein of wool and the pretty needles with wooden ends.
Not sure yet what this will become, but I think I will look through my books, and start something today.
Also, Donna gave me this amazing skein of 100% Merino superwash that her daughter Janine hand painted. Be still my heart :) I know exactly what this is going to be. My daughter wants a skein of this, and my Mother thought it was lovely too. Hmmmmm, I may be giving Donna a call.
While floating around Ravelry, I saw this awesome scarf and knew I needed to make it. It uses several different stitches to give it lots of texture. It's long enough to double up on those really cold days so I can stay warm.
Won't it be lovely done up in the hand painted wool? It would look great in the brown too so I think I will start both today. Idle hands ya know.......
Lastly, I did another farmers wife block yesterday. Slow and steady is my motto for this quilt. I saw one person who turned the blocks she had done so far into a baby quilt and it looked wonderful. I guess I could do that if I get tired of this, but I am hoping to persevere.
Anyway, I have about 400 stitches to cast on, so if you'll excuse me I am going to melt into the couch for a while. Have a fantastic New Years!
