Wednesday Yarn Along

Happy Almost Summer! Finally!

For all of you checking on our pregnant mommas, they are STILL pregnant. Not sure what they are waiting for! I know if I could have delivered my baby this weekend, I would have! So for the time being, they are staying cool in the barns, laying by the fans and drinking lots of water. Should be any day now....it BETTER be any day now!

In knitting news, we are very excited to announce that two of our knitted creations have been accepted into the National Fiber Product Showcase!
If you would like to, visit the website and you can cast your vote.
It would be very exciting to have one of our items win.

Exciting stuff around here!

On to the Yarn Along....

On Andee's Needles:

Baby Hat knitted with her very first attempt at hand-spun yarn. I'm impressed! She used a drop spindle and made this beautiful black alpaca yarn. The tan you see at the edging is made of our Awan's handspun yarn.
Original Pattern by Andee

On Leanne's Needles:

Baby Blanket is DONE!

Wow...that took a long time.
I was starting to doubt that I would have it done in time for baby's homecoming.
But I did it with plenty of time to spare :)

Bluebells Cardigan

I started this cardigan for myself a few weeks ago. Had to put it down to finish the blanket so I'm happy to have it back in my hands. Loving the way it's coming along.

Finished with the lace pattern and now onto the body work. I sat at the beach this morning with a friend and got a lot done. Not a bad way to spend the morning! I have some great buttons from the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival that are going to adorn this sweater.
I'm sure I'll be done with this in no time. I love knitting a sweater.

Have a wonderful Wednesday. I hope it's warm and sunny where you are too.

Happy Knitting!
Leanne
