Holy Mother of Tasty Yarn Cakes!

A present from my Mom. A dreamy drop spindle kit from Louet.
Can't wait to give it a spin (sorry - couldn't resist). Thanks Mama!!!


A thrifted sewing book...

Gift for Littlest Sis, mother of Moonpie (soon-to-be-two-years-old).
God knows, Mama's deserve gifts! Happy Almost Birthday, Moonpie!



WIP for aforementioned Moonpie b-day. As soon as this is posted I'm heading off to knit. I'm guessing another 2 days.

You'll be please to know that this is the Blue Sky Alpaca Cotton discovered via the Yarn of the Month club.
I had sworn an oath of utility and am following through.

This yarn is the stuff of dreams.


Lastly - Ordered some yarn for a KAL which will be announced shortly. Any advice/tips for starting a KAL?

The colours in your kit are just beautiful. So soft.

And the bear is going to be a cutie.

Ooohh, can we exchange moms? Nobody I know would think to give me a spindle kit. Those bears have always caught my eye... I need to knit one because they are so cute.

I can't wait to see the bobbi bear knitted up, it's a really cute pattern!

Sasha said...

Ooh, drop spindle, have you done anyone spinning before? I can't recall...

When is our swap you ask? Let me know, I am game for swapping!

Someone sent me a drop spindle a few months back...I can't seem to get the hang of it...I guess I'm just not patient enough to learn right now. It's a sweet gift. I hope you spin lots!
