There's Been Knitting

The chunky Malabrigo was lovely to work with. It had a nice hand and when I "Soaked" it (I used Soak to wash it before blocking), it got SOFTER!!!

I made the card and used a bit of other yarn to tie up the gift.

The recipient's response was priceless and made up for so many times when I've made something that didn't go over as well. It reminded me of Birdie's Mama's response when she opened the sweaters for Birdie.

Good feelings.

And here's another angle. Gosh that yarn is gorgeous. Yum, it reminds me of chocolate and coffee.

I also have finished the tomato, but need to sew in some ends and think about the lace panel I have been talking about. Then, I need to block it.

But, it fits and it's kind of nice... I'm feeling a little pride I'm not gonna lie to you!

I know I have prize winners to announce. Thank you for donating to Alzheimer's Memory Walk. I appreciate your support.

I'll announce tomorrow :)


  1. Ooooh... delicious! The Tomato looks great, you go girl!

  2. The scarf looks absolutley delicious!

    I can't wait to see the tomato finished! You should be proud!

  3. Glad your tomato lives up to your expectations. Sometimes you knit and you knit, and you knit and when you're done, you're still not satisified. Have a great day!

  4. Oh WOW!!!!!! The scarf, and the tomato- when either one would have been more than enough beauty for one day! :) I can't wait to knit with you can get that knitting vibe to rub off on me!

  5. Does it really get softer? Is that possible? :)

    Congrats on the tomato! You need to get a photo of yourself wearing it! That's such a great accomplishment!!
