While Natalie was here, as a thank you, I took her to the local yarn store, Ivelise’s. She had a great time looking at ALLLLLL the yarn and the books for ideas.
While we were waiting, we had some yarny fun of our own.
That’s my mystery knit* with Ducky on the big round table. Can you see all the yarny goodness hiding in the background? To the left are wound up scarves in a cute little crochet pattern. When wound up they look like little heads of broccoli or something.
Miss R and Ducky show off a bright pink flowered headband that she would like me to make for her. Only skinnier. And with rainbow yarn. And a bigger flower. And stretchier. So really, it won’t look anything like that at all.
A stealth shot of Natalie picking out some yarn. She took FOREVER to pick out yarn But she got some really great stuff that made her happy. Plus a new book, 60 Quick Knits for Cascade 220. I’d like to get a copy of that book. Lots of fun little projects in there!
I can’t wait to see what Natalie is up to with all her yarn and new patterns, but since she was doing some stealthy holiday knitting, I think I’ll just have to wait.
More updates coming!
In other news, Ben is still in Switzerland. But he’s sick. Say a quick prayer, light a candle, cross your fingers, slaughter a pig** or whatever it is you do to pass on the good luck he needs to finish his class, graduate on Friday, and make it home without the flu.
*More on the mystery knit later. It was finally released, so I’ll show it off to you later.
** Ok, don’t really do this unless you are a trained professional who will later eat the pig, please.
