more yarn pron







I can't get the hang of which way the pictures show but you'll get the idea I hope:) In no particular order. Beginning of a shawl in opal sock yarn and yellow mohair. It is now finished:) This is my March moon shawl for the hospice, something to reflect Ostara and Spring Equinox. The start of spring in the colours.White boucle mohair for dying,Wonderful, wonderful mountain colors yarn mohair and moggie colours for sure:))After advice from various sources I decided not to buy blocking wires. I went to the market and purchased some metal rods,(welding?) and 2 metres of stainless steel wire plus a play mat from ELC. Et voila blocking solutions:) the dark purply yarn with stitch markers are from Andrea in exchange for the hipknits.
Thanks Andrea haven't had time to email everyone yet with all thats going on.
Mountain color yarn in blues for a hat.Phew think that is it for now. Off to decide what to knit next

Dear Amber,

What beautiful shawls and yarn!Time to reveal my plans. I plan on sending you 3 packages, each one around the 15th of the month. A welcome parcel in April, one in May, and a final one in June.
Now you know what to look forward to. The rest I will keep to myself. :-)
Your Secret pal

I LOVE that yellow yarn - mohair? At this time of year I get such an urge for yellow, despite the fact that it doesn't do a single thing for me! Guess it's the goddess twitching the strings somewhere in our unconscious? Go with the feeling, moggie dearest

I love the idea of a March Moon shawl, the colour is so Spring-like too.

Hi Amber- first of all, I need to tell you that I'm sorry for your loss. I've been lurking in the shadows waiting to post. I'm sure he's missed by all.

On a brighter note, check out the Mists KAL, there's a contest that I don't want you to miss!

Oh, and it's so great how your shawl project is coming along. Kudos to you!

Sorry to read about your uncle, even expected its always a shock. Hopefully with the new season starting things will feel better, even if the weather isn't cooperating!
