So now I decided to take a few pictures with my new Verizon Incredible phone and see if it would be easier to post pictures from my phone rather than my camera. For some reason when I use my camera, I have to save it to a disk first, then upload pictures from the disk to here - too many steps , I think.
So without further ado: here we go:
Before we headed down to the Cape, we took a day and went to Boston, my favorite shop there is Windsor Buttons - so many neat crafty things there - but I go for their yarn - cool hand dyed yarns , cool awesome top of the line yarns , wool, sock yarn - you name it. So hubby purchased this for me
This is Dream in Color SMOOSHY - yum - this is the first time I have ever owned a skein of this yarn and it is heavenly - I knew exactly what sock pattern I was going to use and they are for me!!! Yeah. This is 4 oz, 450 yards of goodness - color is Shiny Moss. I just love green - so organic - natural.
Here it is all wound up:
I cannot even begin to tell you the gorgeous colors that flow through this yarn - I was not sure how it would knit up but it is very soft and squooshy - (is that even a word)
I am using a free pattern from Ravelry If you haven't joined - go ahead, so much to explore - it is free! Free!
Oh yeah, I got carried away - it is a free pattern - Spring Forward socks from Knitty 2008 - another awesome site for knitters, lot of tips too!
There you go: Cross stitch update on Monday and a new adventure for me : soap making!
