I love all those colors! Can't wait to see what you're making. I finally finished a shawl I've been working on since last November -- why did it take forever? Now I'm working on another one in a camel color. I'm with you -- knitting is a great break from all the deadline sewing.

What wonderful knitting projects you are doing! The yarn is beautiful. My LQS is going to be offering a knitting project this quarter for a scarf. I plan to do a post about it this week on their blog. I'm going to take the class. I can't resist any longer, LOL!

I really love your first two yarns. I bet you just cherish every minute working with them. I really don't like it when my sewing has deadlines and becomes stressful - cause it is suppose to be what keeps me calm and sane. LOL!! I sure hope your eye starts feeling better.

That yarn is gorgeous! One hint for having to stop and count the stitches: I don't know how many stitches to have on the row, but I often use the little markers in between every 10 or 20 stitches on lacey rows so I can keep better track of where I am in a pattern. You might even use a marker near the end, just to remind you of that stitch. Might help!

I'm going to have to check out that Bijou Basin site. I met someone the other day whose daughter has yaks and spins her own yarns. She was really extolling the softness of the yak yarn.

I love how therapeutic knitting can be when you're feeling stressed. Love the colors you picked up! Hang in there with the final push of the semester... and the rainy forecast.

Brooke

Wow!! You are so, so talented!! Hope you finish up those grades soon!

Allie

Oh that yarn is just stunning, Stephanie, and you're so right, sometimes you just need a break from sewing. Especially deadline sewing - you have enough deadlines in your life! I hope your eye twitch goes away, they're so annoying. Do some neck stretches.

I think tomorrow is supposed to be nice...I'm hoping so, anyway, I'll be out running around all day!

Gorgeous yarn! Stitching offers the same kind of soothing, meditative state for me that knitting does for other people.

I've seen many articles like the one above, but I know from experience that hand stitching and crocheting work for me.

Hope you get through all of your deadlines unscathed!

Hey, I've got a possible cure for dry skin that is so dry it snags yarn: Cetaphil moisturizing cream. When Carmen was about 2, her pediatrician recommended it for her dry skin. I noticed that when I used it regularly on her, MY cuticles didn't get so dry! Great stuff, especially in winter!

Deb

Very nice! I just love yarn - I'm really going to have to learn to knit! And thanks for the comments on our little trailer - it really is "just right" for us and we're enjoying it thoroughly - even with the new trailer problems.

Love thost yarns. Wish I had time to knit!
