I made these with Shibui's DK Baby Alpaca and it was a delight working with this yarn - so soft!
We got to spend Christmas with all our kids and grandchildren this year, which was really special. Lots of presents to open:
Fascinating to read, especially since I have been to his family's restaurant, Nepenthe, at Big Sur and he goes into a lot of detail about growing up in that area in the 50's and 60's.
I also got this lovely needle case by Latern Moon. Very special and I love this deep burgundy color:
I also got these project bags from Namaste; very nice and no more Target plastic bags for my projects!
Thanks to my wonderful daughters for these great Christmas presents!
Then the day after Christmas the fun continued as the three of us set off for our favorite yarn shop in Denver, Lamb Shoppe. We spent a couple of hours sipping coffee, checking out their new yarns and my younger daughter, looking for a knitting project with instant gratification, bought a skein of Berroco's Link to make a quick scarf before she left town to head back to LA. This scarf calls for one skein of Link and the directions for the scarf are on the ball band. Using size 50 needles, she had almost half of it done before we left the shop and finished it that night. So cute!
Looking forward to another year of great knitting and seeing what you all accomplish!
