Hello my friends! Thanks for visiting! I'm nearly done crocheting the jewel toned Queen Anne's Lace scarf for my oldest granddaughter, Jenna! The colors in this skein were way longer which gives bigger pools of color, my favorite parts are where the ruby turns to turquoise and it turns purple. :-)
I'm making these not too long as they will be more decorative than warm on the girls. I just thought they'd enjoy wearing these to school.
I'm nearly done with the gold cotton wash cloth, it's amazing how much smaller it is on size 7 needles than the one I made on size 9s.
I was worried that KnitPicks would discontinue the "Simply Cotton Worsted" -- so I got 10 skeins. I know.. don't tell my DIL who told me "NO more yarn!". :-)
But this stuff really is the epitome of luscious cotton -- unbleached, organic, soft, dreamy. I can see some thick hot pads, wash cloths and who knows what in the future.. what would YOU make with this?
While I was looking at cottons on the KP website I saw this.. how could I resist just ONE of these to see what it was like? Well.. you know me.. I could *not* resist.
I will withhold judgement until I knit or crochet with this, but from my initial perusal of it.. it's quite natural and rustic! What would this make? Hmmm!
Wild and wooly!
Well.. I need to get on the phone and reserve some rooms and a car for our trip to New Orleans in April. I will share our itinerary with you soon. We're going to spend several days in the French Quarter and do as many things as we can, then we're renting a car and driving to see Oak Alley antebellum mansion on our way to stay a night in Lafayette, LA. We'll go see where Dayle and I lived at first in a little old town called Milton, then the house we had built where our first 2 kids were born. Then to dinner at our favorite restaurant called Riverside Inn where I want to get the Crawfish dinner! LOL! On our way back to New Orleans we'll visit Avery Island where Tabasco sauce is made. I'm so excited! OK, off to swim again. Talk to you later! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
