Hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween last night! I’ve been neglecting the blog again to play with yarn (but who could blame me really?).
There’s a baby coming! That means there’s a blanket in the works. The shower for said baby is next weekend. The parents-to-be don’t live super far from us, but it’s far enough that I want to make sure they have their blanket for when he arrives, so I’m knitting my little heart out every chance I get. The only reason I have a minute to blog now is because I left my knitting at my parents’ house after all the Halloween festivities last night. I am not a fast knitter, and I need to be working on this blanket every spare minute I have, so a retrieval mission is set for this afternoon.
I’m using the OpArt blanket pattern, which I’m LOVING so far. I had a few others in mind, but when my husband saw OpArt he said it looked just like a tattoo that the daddy-to-be had, and that it was the one! I think that’s as good a reason as any 🙂
I’ve also been playing with NEW yarn! I want to expand my line of hand dyed yarns to include some different weights. This is my heap of trial yarn to see what I like. And bonus, all of it is made in the USA!!!
I’ve been in love with hand dyed single ply yarn lately, and in this heap there’s a very nice one in a lace weight. There’s also a squishy soft superwash Marino bulky that I can’t wait to knit something up with!
What is your favorite type of yarn to knit with?
