It's a Deal!

This my friends, is S.R. Kertzer's Ovation Kid Mohair and Silk. Normally around $12.00/ball. Click on the picture and see the price I paid for it. Yes, I am bragging. So soft, so silky, so fabulous deal! (Too hard to read the price tags, I paid $4.99!)

I'm making scarves for my MIL, SIL and Nan-in-Law. They should go fairly quickly and I hope to get them done in time to send out to Newfoundland for Christmas. I'm holding two together and using 6mm/US10 needles with a simple K1, *YO, K2tog* end K1, pattern. I'm going to decrease in about an inch or two so I can have a nice flare at the end then do a matching increase at the other end.

Kindergym yesterday was a blast. I finally managed to get some pictures. Our little gymnast in the making. She loves it as do all the other kids who come to run around and go crazy on all the Gymnastic Clubs equipment. She always naps really well after too.

  • Oh what beautiful yarn porn! For a minute I thought you were going to put it up for sale ... and I was the first to see it, tehe. But oh no, you were teasing me to look at the price and it was in YOUR hands. LOL They will make yummy scarves for the lucky receivers.

  • WOW - great yarn score! Those scarves are going to be beautiful.
    Girl is too cute! Quite the little gymnast you've got there. Having spent my weekend with a 2 1/2 year old I'm now very fond of nap time!
    Happy knitting:)
