I am using my newest yarn, now in my Etsy Shop of Wonder, for this knit. Hint Hint, you may want to get some yourself because I will be hosting a KAL in the future PLUS I have a couple of more patterns to promote soon from fellow Ravelry friends that will be perfect for my yarn.
I am also spinning some Suri/Merino fiber from another friend's farm. It's the perfect color of lime and it's been a nice change of pace from the last few yarns I've created.
I warped my loom and I'm working on another project. I feel like a Spring Garden garden is ready to burst.
Dino Spikes Hat with a slight modification for the boys. My goal is to ignore all of these projects (haha) and get these hats done. I'm thinking one will be green with yellow spikes and the other will be it's opposite then for their big brother I am "planning" to knit a dinosaur out of the leftover yarn. Yeah, we'll see how that goes. She is almost family (actually a long distance cousin of sorts) and I adore her so she is worth it. I am using Cascade Yarns Pacific Chunky which is Acrylic (gasp) and Wool. It doesn't feel bad but my dislike of Acrylic (gasp) doesn't outway that the gifts are going to a person who will soon have her hands busy with three young boys and not have time to remember to hand wash. What I hate most about this yarn is that when you pull the yarn to start knitting, I have had an insane amount of knots and because it has acrylic (gasp) in it the tangles are hard knots. Seriously! I've had not choice but to cut twice and I can't splice the yarn because of the acrylic (gasp). The worst part is that each skein still cost me $8.75 and I'm still having bad yarn issues. I am blaming it on the acrylic (gasp). Another reason why I prefer to knit with handspun instead of commercial yarn. At least when I turn my skeins into cakes, you don't find all of the knots. Grrrrr.
