Thank you all so much for the enthusiasm about my yarn!! I'm quite anxious to see how it knits up, but I'll have to wait until after my Christmas knitting is done. For those of you who asked, here is my recipe:
- Tan - two packets of Tamarindo with a sprinkle of Grape
- Blue - 7 packets of Ice Blue Raspberry, the rest of the packet of Grape and a little sprinkle of Cherry
- Burgundy - 2 packets of Cherry, 1 packet of Watermelon Cherry, 1 packet Tropical Punch and a half packet of Grape
I've taken a little break from my Christmas knitting to knit for a couple of good causes. The first is my square for Comforting Jenn - I took the picture before it was blocked . . . I don't know why!
It's all knit up and ready to become part of an afghan for a woman who has had more sorrow in her life than anyone should have to bear. I hope it brings her some comfort. You can find out more about the afghan here:
I've also finished a hat for another very special cause, but I'll save that for my next post. My wonderful Pea was kind enough to kiss me good-night even though he was sick with a cold. Thanks honey, just what I needed. I'm off to the couch for some tea and a nap. *sniff, cough*
