When there's a smile in your heart There's no better time to start..wool searching!

I have been thinking Peter Pan all week!! I am so jetlagged than a 4 am wakeup is becoming normal for me and I can't stand it especially as it is Monday and I have to work and so much planned for today.

Atleast i am almost finished the project I started yesterday from a 5 year old stash yarn. I am not sure I like the way the soaker is far longer than the skirtie though but that remains to be seen when my lo tries it on. I just have one more leg cuff to go and oh, I especially made a short I-cord since the item is so busy already!

What do you all think? And please be honest, I can take it. It needs blocking too!

morning guys!! not sure about yarn dyers for cotton, but you can try these:

http://www.elmore-pisgah.com/store-pc.htm The yarn is pretty cheap and has some great colors. Michael's, AC Moore, Hobby Lobby.......places like that usually have it and have TONS of the colors. I made a hat with it a few years ago and it was really easy to work with.

I have woodland tale all finished up except for the cuffs. I am waiting to hear back about what cuff style she wants before I get them finished. In the mean time, while waiting, I cast on another hat.

My computer kicked the bucket yesterday, so I'm borrowing the hubby's computer to say good morning! I'll not be around much until I can get to radio shack to get the stuff I need to fix my computer. In the mean time, I have a lot of sewing to do, so there won't be many FOs in the house this week. However, I am nearly done with my very first sock, and I'm so excited. Even though I don't wear socks, I suddenly feel the urge to knit more of them. we'll see.

Well, the twins are awake, so I had best get going. I'll catch up with you all once I fix my computer!
