The yarn is very soft.

Not only does the power go out again just after I reset the clocks, but I didn't get a chance to make coffee.

Pretty Yarn in a Pretty Tree

Spring has sprung into full bloom here in the upper MidWest, bringing with it a craving for new yarn. Now, I am, strictly speaking, on a yarn diet. But that doesn't count for yarn to make gifts. Right?

It started innocently enough . . . .



But Darn Knit Anyway had new colors, and I spent the night wishing I had a couple more of them.


SM Gold

You can see my dilemma, I'm sure.

Now, to get knitting on those gifts.

(All yarn is Malabrigo Worsted Merino.)

Showing coffee how much I love it

Three Musketeers Coffee Mitts (Rav link) by Sarah Nopp
It took one skein of Noro Silk Garden to make all three of these and I use them all the time. I'm making a few to show the morning Starbucks crew how they're appreciated, too.
