My anniversary roses are open and still pretty with pinkish-red tipping the creamy yellows.
I have always wanted to make Cheesylove and won the angora for it on E-bay a couple of years ago. For the background, I purchased Lambs Pride Cotton Fleece in black to stretch its “wear-ability” to the spring and autumn. Here is my yarn – I plan all pale pink hearts except for one red one over the left breast bone. Another recent Cheesylove can be found at this blog . (I just found it and do not know the name of this knitter. Check it out!)
Here is the
Harry Potter Scarf Yarn.jpg. The scarlet and gold are for the Gryffindor house. It will be a while until I start these.
These ivory, tan and pale gray yarns are for a summer poncho. Remember my two Darryl Hannah scarves? I love the mixed media of yarns and want to make a loose summer poncho that is similar in size and shape to my rust Berroco Glace one, but with an open stitch. I also bought a ball of black Berroco Suede to make a cell phone cover for Mark, but did not snap it. There is a free pattern at Berroco I plan to use although I will need to remove the feminine accents (fringe galore).
This yarn came from Threadbear and is for the "Pull Kimono." One slight problem is the pattern is in French. I am using on-line translators and a French to English copy of the Album 406 Famille which features other patterns ala Phildar Onde.
I still have my Rowan 2003 subscription gift kit and do not plan to make it up. If I could think of another use for the yarn, I would, but I would rather have something else. Any trade offers?
