More Holiday Yarns to Spin!

Along with the yarn I happily received for the Holidays, my mom gave my sister and I gift certificates to Stix and Stitches. With gift cards in hand, we went shopping :)

Here are pictures of us browsing, reading, and our final haul! That's a lot of yarn!!!


Some pictures of my yarn:

I've wanted this Sheep Shop Yarn ever since I laid eyes on it so I splurged.

On my Art Blog I'll be posting more "artsy" pictures of yarn in my next post if you'd like to check it out. I know I keep mentioning it but it is my passion. How could I not.

Completed hat and neck warmer

I'm picking up my Central Park Hoodie again which is fun. I'm also working on the teddy bear our knitting group is doing together for charity and a scarf which is a spin off of the one with a hole in it that Riare shared at our meeting. Hint: I added a button and a flap. I'll leave it at that.
Here are the pics of the final hat and neck warmer.

Chalk Dust Meeting

We met today to knit and had dinner together. Our membership seems to jump a bit with each meeting which is so exciting! It was so nice to gather, talk about school and knitting and just enjoy our Friday night doing something we love... and I finished a hat!!! I'll post pics of it and it's matching neck warmer when tucked and buttoned up. YAY!!!

My Mom's idea

I'm going to add a new link to "Lesser Known Skeins", a new blog my mom started for knitters whose blogs need a boost. The idea is to check each others blogs, read, comment, and get a little blog ring going on. Click on the link to check it out.
I should post pics of my class too. Unlike my mom's class, it's got lots of windows...but none of them open...seriously.
later all!
