Aren't they JUST TOO COOL???
|They have a very pretty lacy look :*)|
Anyway, my focus now is going to be on finishing up the Swing Cowl which is over halfway done and looking marvelous! And I'm hoping to start giving Rocio some love as well now that I'm home again :*)
I like to have at least one pair of socks on the needles at all times, so I've cast on a new pair out of this yarn....
I have already made one pair out of this beautiful yarn, but I gave those to my sweet daughter for Christmas, so I need to make a pair for me now :) They will be just plain jane socks, and I'm using my favorite Toe-up, Two-at-a-time, Magic Loop pattern. I'm off to a great start....
Stash Report: I'm adding 300 yards of yarn to my "Stash Used" column for the red socks, which leaves me at 1,500 yards stashed for this year so far.
Jacquelynne Steves of The Art of Home is putting the final touches on the next issue of her free e-newsletter! You won't want to miss it, so if you are not already receiving it, visit her blog HERE to sign up. Remember - its FREE :*) I love Jacquelynne's artwork, so whimsical and happy. She'll be coming out with a new fabric line too very soon! She has an Etsy shop HERE that sells her lovely artwork in various products - my favorites are the adorable notecards....
And I really want to say a huge THANKS to a few generous friends!
And my friend Carla gave me this totally CUTE needle-keeper that she made. Isn't this the most beautiful fabric - YUM!!! She sure knows my colors, doesn't she :*)
When you lift the flap, it opens up into a very roomy needle keeper! I can actually organize my needles by size or type! The beaded necklace is for "reading" glasses, but I think I'm going to adapt it to hold my guild name tag. That way I'll think of her and remember her kindness every month :*)
Thanks again Carla!!!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
I think our weather is supposed to warm up a little....
- will Spring ever get here???
Hugs & Blessings!
