Hello! I'm joining in the fun of Jennifer at Thistlebear blog - we're sharing our winter projects to cheer each other along. I have three projects to share, two are WIPs (Works in Progress) and one is new. Let's start with my neat ripple (design courtesy of Lucy at Attic24 blog) blanket that I'm making to give to my niece Jessica as a wedding gift. They are already married, so I need to Get. This. Done. :-) I am doing this is Premier Home cotton in beige and cream. I usually do more colorful things but I thought this neutral color would blend in with any decor. I hope they like it! (I should have smoothed out those wrinkles! :-)
My second WIP is my natural white 100% pure alpaca shawl that I've been working on... for a while... :-) I'm nearly done with the body of the shawl and will soon get to the lacy edging/border. First I will finish the blanket, then this for winter wearing.
And then.. I blame Meredith and her blog list.. I was clicking through and visiting her blog pals and came across one that showed her skein of yarn she bought on Etsy from TwoBlackSheepYarn. As my eyes scanned down the different color combinations ... ZING.. this one grabbed me. I emailed the sellers and asked if they could show me how the yarn knits up.. and that was it.. *click* *pay* and it will soon be winging it's way from California to me. :-)
This is the "Reverse Psychology" pattern that the seller is working on in this colorway.. which is called.. "I'll Get You My Pretty". Isn't that clever? Tell me if you know that line..
