I love it when I get all the yarn wound into cakes!! Gray yarn on the bottom left is more of Cascade's Eco Duo. I'm making a hat for my son. The ecru yarn is Cascade 220 and I'll be knitting a pair of mittens for my oldest granddaughter. The colorful yarn cakes and knitted piece are Berroco's Borealis. I'll be making 3 more of those cute pointy hats. And the black fiber is Prime Alpaca...mmmmm yummy and soft. I'll be making another hat. Between hats and socks I've always got something in the knit basket.
I finished up some stitching projects too. My sister's, Joan and Cathy, have birthday's in January on the 20th and 21st. I stitched both of them these boxes. The design is called 'All is Calm' by Amy Bruecken Designs. I liked the 'black' sheep big sister watching over her little sister. The boxes are from Nordic Needle and yes, they are the same box that Shepherd's Bush used in their last two designs.
This was the first time I used DMC's memory thread. I thought it added to this stitch!!
And inside....the newest Kelmscot Design needle minder. If you look closely, the needle minder is snuggled in some fabulous dark plum roving.
It was fun making these for my sisters. I love them dearly and I know they love me.
Happy knitting and stitching to everyone! Stay warm.
