Getting new yarn is so much fun, especially when it is free! I got Carrie's yarn this week and it is beautiful. My dog must think so too, because she just had to get next to it.
Carrie sent a long a little surprise with the yarn, stitch markers! I don't have any pretty stitch markers, just the little blue and red plastic circles, so I immediately used one for Shedir.
That is also the first pattern repeat of the hat. I really like this pattern.
Here are the other three she sent. Aren't they cute!
I am going to enjoy using them. I also promised pictures of the new yarn I bought last weekend. The black yarn is 100% Alpaca and is so soft. As soon as I finish Shedir I am going to make a hat out of this. The other yarn is Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in Northern Lights. I wanted something I could wear with my black clogs, and I fell in love with the purples and greens in this yarn.
I heard from the Dr yesterday. My tests came back completely normal. I feel fine now, so hopefully my body was able to fight whatever it is that I had and I won't get sick again. Next time, pictures of the completed two color brioche stitch scarf!
