Spoiled Continued

birthday

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. 
 
birthdayDorothee 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!

birthdayAnd I grabbed this cute pattern book by Debbie Bliss and started a little cardi for Sophia to wear at easter.  I don’t think I’m goign to finish in time though.  I got all this yarn and only paid $7 bucks after my gift certificates! 
So… yeah, I’m spoiled!!  Thanks everyone!!  I better get started on Dorothee’s cowl now!!

  2. I love making stuff…. I'm nowhere near as good as you, but it's been a really fun project! So glad you like it.
    I am now super curious about that last line you added….hmmmm 🙂

    Major score at GPY, AWESOME!
    Can't wait to see Sophia's sweater, she looked so cute yesterday in her pretty dress and later in her little strawberry outfit!
