What's new???

Mom went to a garage sale and called to ask if I would like her to pick up the yarn they had there. Well, being the "pack rat" that I am, I could not resist. So I said sure, why not. Imagine my suprize when she brought me about 40 (brand new, never used) skein of "Dazzillair" yarn. There were about 20 half skeins too. There are all kinds of colors. All that yarn for $15.00. I couldn't believe it. It opened up a lot of possibilities for my stash. I will probably use some if it to make the sweater coat from "". I ordered the pattern last week after drooling over it for a year.

I have finally started knitting again. This last flare up I had turned out to be the worst I have ever had. So instead of starting another new project I have been working on the sam old ones. I had to frog and re work the front panel of my blue on blue Shawl Collar Coat. I realized that the "almost completed" front was not wide enough. The Einstien is on hold till I finish the Shawl collar coat. I also frogged and cast on again the Sweet Tart socks. I was not happy with the way they were turning out. I found a sock pattern for wider feet and ankles, so I went with it. And I am happy to report, so far so good.

Since knitting had been out of the question, I was doing a little sewing.

Blue on Blue Wrap

This dark/light blue are two layers sewn together. I love the contrast.

Blue on Blue Wrap 2

Mitten set

The black wrap is the same style as the blue on blue but just a single layer.

Black wrap & mitten set

What do ya think??? I love them!!! Sewing hasn't been too bad. It's different. I have a blouse pattern I may try next.
