Weekend in (knitter’s) Paradise

31 Mar

It was a very good weekend, really.  I happened upon a craigslist posting offering plenty of yarn for cheap.  The poster used to be a LYS owner in another state and had lots of yarn she’s been hauling around the country for several years.  I scored 47 skeins of various yarns and a size 1 Inox circular needle for $65 – that’s an average of $1.35 per item.  So cool.  See the “latest acquisitions” page for pics.  🙂  DH and I also celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary this week (April Fool’s Day, in fact!), and he’s made me the loveliest gift for our anniversary this year – my own yarn swift.  It works really well, doesn’t take up much space, and it adds a great little breeze to the air that cools me off when I’m working hard at turning the crank on my yarn winder!  LOL!  Pics of that on the same page. 




The Tweenie Beanies (above) are fully completed.  I think they are really cute, but I’m not a 12 year old girl.  Will have to wait and see what they think!  🙂  I also finished the back of my purple tee in Berroco Comfort and am about 1/3 of the way done with the front, as well.  Seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, but still need to do the front of my pink Cotton Rich DK Tank of One Color before I can do more than swatch all this yummy new yarn.  Phooey…
