New Yarn!

Good morning.  Remember the scarves I made for the gals in my eye doctor’s office? Well look at what I received in the mail yesterday from those sweet ladies.

Yarn Gift

They sent me these beautiful yarns!  Beautiful colors. I can’t wait to make a scarf with each of these.  Just look at those luscious colors!

I can’t even pick a favorite.  They are all beautiful and I know they will all knit up nicely.  Thanks ladies!  I Love it!


Switching Stitches

Since finishing August Fairy I have been undecided as to what cross stitch project  to start next.  I have several ideas in my head, just haven’t landed on any particular one yet.  So, I am switching over to  a knitting project.  Yep, Started a scarf for a Christmas gift the other night.  I am using one of those fun, scarf yarns.

scarf yarnI picked this up at Joanne’s the other night as it will go perfectly with the recipient’s coat. Here is the start:

Red Starbella Scarf in progressDon’t you just love all the bouncy, flowy, lacey,  layers?  It looks heavenly.  It is a bit of a pain to have to stop and pull apart the yarn in order to knit in the loops, but it goes pretty quickly.  here is the finished scarf:

Finished Red scarf

I love how it turned out.  It will match my coat perfectly too, hmmmm….No, it is a gift.  Here is the one I am making for myself now:

black and white scarf

This one uses a yarn I picked up at a yarn shop last year, called Marina by Rozzetti.  Same concept as the Red yarn above, just a little different feel.  This will look stunning with my red coat.  Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to.  What are you up to?
