Yarn Shopping

Friday I went to my LYS looking for some Crystal Palace knitting needles. Sadly they didn't have the size I needed. I did end up picking up a new brand of needles. They are Bryson rosewood needles. Oh they are so lovely to work with. The lady at the yarn shop gave a great review on them so that was a plus.

I also picked up some new yummy yarn. I've been looking at this yarn for awhile but never got around to buying it. It is Plymouth Heaven. 100% nylon. Oh it's yummy. I am working on a ghan for myself with it. Maybe later once my knitting skills have improved I will make a robe or sweater out of it.

My next project is going to be an ABC afghan for my youngest. We went to the yarn store over the weekend to pick the yarn up. She chose Lion Brand pound of love in the turqoise color. Good choice =)

I organized some of my patterns and needles/hooks. Some of my circulars and dpn I had bought a couple of years ago seem to have gone missing.....

Here is my newest finished project. This is for my husband's co-worker new doggie. The pattern came from 200 shell stitches. The pattern is called cascading waves. I used an I hook for it. Round 1 of the border was sc. 2nd round was double crochet and the third was hdc shell in one stich then slipping the next around.
This was fun to do!!

Ripple baby ghan

This was a gift for a friend who had a baby boy at the beginning of the year. As always I was late in finishing the gift. This was my first ripple pattern and I loved it. I had so much fun making it. It was made with Simply Soft yarn

This is "Blue Bun Bun" as my youngest daughter calls it. This bun bun was made by her request as she has a pink bun bun and wanted a friend to go with it. He was made with RH and bernat baby lash yarn with an H hook. It came out a lot larger than I had anticipated but she loves it.
