christmas knitting + rhoda.


I worked on this scarf for 2 hours yesterday, and it'a almost finished! can you believe it?

I did most of the work while watching 4 episodes of "Rhoda" on Hulu. THECUTESTSHOWEVER.

I'm making a Fidget. It's my go to holiday gift because it moves quickly, and I LOVLOVELOVE using Misti Alpaca Chunky yarn!!! Every time I find it for a good price, I buy a truckload. If I am going to knit gifts, I want to at least enjoy it a little and this stuff is a dream to work with. I remember touching it for the first time at Loop in Philadelphia and I almost cried. It's nicer than any cashmere. I swear. It really is absolutely my favorite yarn. Gah!

xmas fidget!

What's your favorite fiber to work with?

Definitely Malabrigo. It's basically all I ever knit with. I probably need to branch out sometime. The yarn you're using looks divine!

Gosh - Misti or Malabrigo?? I'm glad we aren't being forced to choose!!!

i love alpaca! way more than cashmere. i tend to lean more towards certain brands of yarn than specific fibers. but OH! stonehedge fiber mill shepherd's wool was my favorite yarn experience of EVER.

I'm totally loving bamboo at the moment! So soft and light and good for the summer things I'm making my bebe.

Alpaca. It's a little slippery, I love it.

good job! I just started a scarf for my sister in law, it's the first time I have knit on size 10 needles so it's going pretty quick!
