Webs Yarn Store Blog Mention!

I am so glad it's Friday. It's been a long and gloomy week here in LA. And what a nice surprise to come home to - my Vintage Baby Dress was mentioned on the WEBS Yarn Store Blog today as a great project using Valley Yarns Valley Superwash! Thank you kindly for the mention, Dena !

Needless to say, I am a big fan of Valley Superwash. It has a wonderful feel and a great "bounce" to knit with. I also knitted a vest for my Mom in Valley Superwash. 100% Merino feels nice, soft and warm. It makes any hand-knitted garment feel extra special. :)

And as luck would have it, Valley Superwash is Steve’s Deal of the Day. Through Sunday, March 18, Valley Superwash is on sale for $3.99/ball, regularly $5.49. (Use Promo Code FBSUPERWA2). I'm going to add more to my stash!!

Surprise! It's a Baby Jacket!

What in the world...?
Yay, it's a new knitting project!

I haven't been knitting much in the past few months because I moved! The new place is slightly bigger and I now have a larger craft room/studio! We're still living amongst boxes and stacks of books/clothes/etc., so it will take a while for things to be back to normal.

So those of you who are seasoned knitters or are "EZ fans" already know what this is. For those who don't - doesn't the WIP above look like a rectangle gone terribly wrong or a sad attempt at knitting a rainbow-colored animal hide?!
