Amazing "Grace"

I think Grace is really pissed at me!!! I've been keeping her in suspense as to what I've been knitting with her homespun.

I sold my soul to win this most "wonderful" & I mean WONDERFUL homespun by Grace. This has to be the most fabulous yarn that I have EVER knit with!!! It's so evenly spun & has such a different feel to it than that of commercial yarn.

This is a diagonally knit scarf with a shifting rib pattern. The pattern calls for Noro Silk Garden & I think Grace's yarn is "equally" suited.

There will be leftover yarn & I'm thinking mittens, which would be a first for me!!!

I got extremely "lucky" & won the pink hat draw in Emily & Michael's baby contest!!!
My prizes arrived yesterday & I'm tickled to death with them. Look at the precious Easter egg sock bag from Tipsy Knitter!!! I love it love it love it!!! Too, there was a "pink" keychain highlighter - a knitter's must. A "pink"mini fan! Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm always hot (yeah baby), so I'll definitely be wearing it out!!! A sock blocker keychain kit - it even has "pink" yarn included. And last, but definitely not least a "pink" package of "Soak" which I've been wanting to try. Thanks bunches
Emily, Michael & Ellie!!!

Rustic - Kate by Wooly Treasures
Superwash Merino

This has been the funnest roving yet to spin with. The color scheme makes me feel good & is so happy!!! There's not a color alive that isn't included.

I never get tired of seeing stuff from my house show up on other people's blogs! It's confirmation that we are more than just imaginary friends. :D

I love the subtle striping in the Grace yarn! I think you chose a perfect pattern for it. And I definitely need to check out Wooley Treasures!

I think we all need little fans like that. ;-)
