Can't wait to see your new yarn!

Hey Monica, when you check in I just wanted to say, Bear's scrappies are TDF!!!!!! he looks so adorable in them, and the fit is perfect. You absolutely cannot sell them!

I finished the brim of the hat last night and picked up the stitches to start the crown, did my increase round and fell asleep with knitting needles in hand!

Has anyone noticed that handspun kind of gives off an almost tweed-like appearance?

Re: Sunday Wooly Sunday ...

Good morning,
Lauren, I can't wait to see what you dyed up! And Aimee, I agree on the handspun. And I it.

I'm trying to decide what to get started on today. I might start the Confection Shrug but I don't yet have an image in my mind of how I want it to look. We'll probably head downtown for lunch, so off to the LYS I go unless I use the Hummingbird Beauty.

In the meantime, can I admit that I can see my Selah Fruitful becoming a pair of longies for my DD or a So Called Scarf?

So I'm pretty sure I'll win this sweater (how gorgeous!!) And I'm thinking I'll make some interlock pants for L to match, I was thinking the mustard color, or should I do lavender? She can wear it for her b-day

I'll get pix of the yarn in a bit, the kids are too crazy for me to try it right now. Lily had a red permanent marker and just drew ALLLLL over my wall

.. she's in her room now.

Re: Sunday Wooly Sunday ...

I have been busy lately and haven't been able to come on here and follow the threads. I have been finishing up customs and dyeing yarn all week. My drop spindle came last week! Here's a pic of my first handspun yarn it's super bulky. I think I have a hang of it now and the next one is going to be much better, maybe even usable .


Here are some of the yarns I have been dyeing. This is my first time dyeing on Marr Haven, I didn't like it at first but it is starting to grow on me.

Those are very nice mama!!

You could do a cowl (maybe ) with the bulky handspun, it looks great!

I just ordered some marr haven the other day, can't wait to try my hand at that

Yeah Lauren! I hope you win it. I think I'd do a color other than mustard b/c the trim of the sweater is mustard. If that's peach or orange in it, I might pick that color or the lavendar.

Maddy, the yarn is gorgeous! I love the blues and browns and how nubby it looks. ETA: I see green in that colorway too. So now I must stalk you.

Does anyone remember who wanted to buy some knit-up mama socks? Baby Be Blessed is stocking a pair on the Lemon Tree Lane stocking today (as a guest).
