Wooly Goodness

Far be it for me to keep a no-more-yarn promise, especially when Fabric.com sends me tantalizing sale emails daily. I could not resist the sale price of these top notch quality Rowan dk 100% merino and merino-cashmere blends. My new favorite color is pear green and I added a few sweet warms to put next to my face since pear isn't good there. Then why not add these other shades in the Cashsoft brand? Both groups are dk so I think they are interchangable. I'm thinking I have enough for me and a baby named Violet on my knit-for list.

Speaking of the knit-for list, I have a few finished pieces to show before I send them off. Elaine requested this scarf, a repeat of one I did last year for a Christmas gift. This one is a bit longer, 6"x88" and I used the Multidirectional Scarf pattern.

Then I have two more pairs of socks finished, which I confess had been a long time waiting for a reason to add the toes and weave in the ends. I was looking for other sock needles  and realized they were still in use in the ufo's in the closet. Why not wrap these up and send them to the sock-wanting folks on the list? This second pair, started out matching and suddenly decided matching was overrated and did their own thing.
And I am late in showing this pair, which went out on Saturday to Elizabeth in GA.
 Please don't imagine me to be a fast knitter. The weather was just too wonderful so I sat on the deck under the umbrella and knit all day, with puppy antics to entertain me. Better than TV.

In other news, we are selling Dave's car. We've had a few calls, but plan on listing it in Craig's list

Sleepy boy Chumley right before he went down for a nap. Notice the totally still tail.


  1. I hope you know I expect a photo of Chum every single time. :-)

    Beautiful knitting, beautiful yarn! Never say never when it comes to more yarn!

    Love that pup! Every post from now on must have a line or two at least about the cutey pie and a photo. Too cute!

    Gosh I never knew that pug's tails could be straight or be still and not a blur! Learn something new every day! Loved the knit projects too.

    I have to tell you that my favorite dog was our gorgeous English setter named Chumlea. She died almost 30 years ago and I still think of her nearly every day. I wish you love and delight with your Chum...
