I wasn’t joking when I said I was spoiled for my birthday this year. This is a cowl that my sister-in-law, Dorothee, knit for me for my birthday! Isn’t it stunning?? She’s an amazing crocheter who just started to knit recently and she’s picking it up like a pro! Check out her blog
. The yarn was hand spun by Quilt Otaku
and was the star of the white elephant gift exchange at our knit night. I’m so glad I didn’t win it now because I don’t know if I would have knit something up as lovely as this.
Dorothee also crocheted this baby blanket that features the same stitch that was in a blanket my grandmother made for me when I was a baby. So sweet!! My daughter loves it.
I also received some gift certificates to Green Planet Yarn. And they just had their “make your own sale” sale. I pulled a 20% off chip this time, but have pulled a 40% off chip twice before. And this is what I got… Malabrigo, Madeline Tosh Lace, Lorna’s Laces Greenline Oh MY!
Did you know that I have the best friends in the whole wide world? My dear friend from Quilt Otaku hand spun this for me for my birthday!! I know, amazing right?? She is multi-talented, you have to check out her blog if you haven’t arleady. I need an extra special project to show off this amazing yarn.
The fiber is from a Verb for Keeping Warm.
