Waiting on the Wool to Change -- Tuesday

Good morning ladies.

I cast on this scarf last night with a skein of Plumknits incredible cashmere: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...ere-neckwarmer and I'm almost done. Now the dilemma is: do I gift it as I was planning, or do I keep it for myself and buy another skein for a gift.

I love that scarf pattern, Dev! Can't wait to see your FO.

Here are some pics I wanted to share with you guys.

I found DS wool diving in my Cestari box yesterday.





And here are the WIP pics of the MCZ longies.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to keep them and have a baby boy to go in them.

Oh no. Try some claritin.

Dev, that pattern is real cool. How was your visit with the twins yesterday?
And Molly love those shots and the WIP is sweet.
I cast on a pair of shorties yesterday afternoon. Here they are:

I had really wanted to do a ruffle cuff and make them a bot longer but I didnt have enough wool. Not even for an I-cord or a drawstring. I found an old purple (which isnt the best match) which I doubled and then used one strand of my colorway and braided. I still plan to do something to the tails of the drawstring to shorten them!! But I love the colorway, crushed grapes by UberKnits!
They look great!

Selah "Sweet" on Bulky BFL:



They're not washed or blocked yet & no drawstring yet either.
So pretty

Here is today's WIP. MM Pixie Dust (which looks sooooo much darker than others I've seen. Strange.)

Interesting yours is very dark compared to others I have seen. I like it better.

Here's my gallery...
I like the HK or the artemis.

I would if I could find a better price anywhere else. Plus I need to order needles anyhow.

me stating that you will not be making prefolds for sale with it.

If I do not get the email, I will not process your orders.


How can they tell someone what NOT to make w/ the fabric? It just seems SO odd and kind of rude IMO.
I wouldn't buy then. Thats completly none of their business
