Happy New Year to my fellow yarn alongers.
Is that a word? Well, you know who I mean.
I've been a busy bee lately. Knitting for fun.
Selfish knitting :)
Well, at least for a little while.
My parents gave me this beautiful green alpaca coat for Christmas
and OF COURSE it needed a new scarf!
With the farm being named, Arrow Acres Farm,
I thought an arrow scarf was the perfect thing.
Knit with fingering weight yarn held together, voila.
A fun scarf.
I have a customer request for a hand knit blanket.
It will be gift for her granddaughter's Christening in February.
I have my work cut out!!!
I am SOOOOOOOOOOO excited for my up coming class with
MARY JANE MUCKLESTONE at Vogue Live NYC next week!!!!!
My cousin and I are all signed up for her 2 part Fair Isle class.
So, during the snow this past weekend I thought I would brush up
on my fair isle and practice while also making a gift for
my little nephew-to-be.
These booties seemed perfect.
Cute and tiny and might fit for a week, but I couldn't resist.
A hat to match seemed called for. Again, this boy is due early April,
so might not need a hat for long so it's tiny too :)
Lizzie, if you're reading this, act surprised.
And that grey blanket in the background?
Finished that up too. I LOVE this blanket so much.
In anticipation of the Follow Your Arrow Mystery KAL,
I bought some beautiful Tosh Light Yarn....thank you to my husband
for the gift certificate! I am really looking forward to this KAL.
I have never done a mystery one and I love that it seems like Choose Your Own Adventure books.
My cousin and I are ready for our Fair Isle class...
We were told to bring a few colors of 2 ply wool to experiment different color combos
for the Vogue Live class. My cousin bought all this fabulous yarn and we spent
some time splitting in in half. I think we're ready!
On the reading front....
I am currently reading The Book Thief.
Although with all this knitting it's hard to read.
Joining in with Ginny again this week.
And hop over to my sister, Andee's blog to see her new design.
I am currently working on designing the pdf of the pattern so it
should be released and ready for sale within a day or two.
I am giving knitting lessons starting Friday at the farm.
If you are interested in signing up let me know!
We have a lot of fun :)
