Speaking of my Sainted Mother :) Her birthday was in March. I always try to make her something and she had dropped hints about wanting a lacy scarf...and since I finally finished it...that's what she gets. I just finished blocking it and yes, it's a little late, but not as late as some of her other gifts have been.
Here is the artful display....ahem
And while I was stash diving, I found this great cotton yarn - Patagonia from Araucania. I got it one year at SAFF when we did a yarn swap. It has been sitting in the cabinet for a couple of years now, waiting patiently. And I decided that I need a new hat and mitts.
Nothing too fancy. The hat is a feather and fan pattern and the mitts are just standard stuff. The yarn is really quite pretty with blues, greens and yellows. I think they'll be great next fall...and soo soft.
While my sister is home, we may or may not (depending on time), have a little KAL. The Mericash Neck and Wrist Warmers. I think I may have just the right yarn...in my stash....yes, again! It's the little things in life that excite me.
I really have been trying to refrain from yarn shopping. I have enough fiber in my house that I should be spinning more and buying less. Not to mention that I promised to take my sister to my two favorite yarn stores while she's here....yup, walking straight into temptation. But I will be strong...and live vicariously through my sister. Because it's almost as much fun watching someone else buy yarn as it is to buy it yourself....right? Do I sound convincing?
