Pretty Yarn

This yarn jumped right out at me at Maryland Sheep and Wool. It has my sister's name all over it. These are definitely her colors. I was a little disappointed in the number of knots I found in it while winding it but it's so beautiful..In trying to decide what to do with it, I finally settled on a simple ribbed scarf. It will be great mindless knitting. I had more of a "wrap" thing in mind but every pattern I found called for more yarn than I have. Of course I'm so fickle that I could rip this out tonight and start something else with it before I get too far. I didn't want anything with too much of a pattern because that would defeat showing off the colors. I'm open to suggestions. There are 521 yards of it. It seems to be between a DK and worsted weight.

I really wanted to start the Baby Pea Pod sweater last night but I'm still stuck on that pattern. I worked on that chart a little bit over the weekend but still can't get it. I was looking forward to taking it to knitting night tomorrow to get some help but I found out over the weekend that I can't go because of a dinner I have to go to.

I forgot the photos of Lady Eleanor. I'll try to remember to do that tonight. I definitely want to knit another one of those for myself. I was thinking last night how gorgeous it would have been in the yarn above. I think I'll make that my goal for Maryland Sheep and Wool next year.... find some great yarn for my Lady Eleanor.

I loved reading your blog! thanks for sharing the photos of yarn. I only have one store that sells a variety of yarns here. You are so fortunate!

Looking at this yarn made me want to eat fruit (watermelons and strawberries). Yum!

I'll be on the lookout for a project that will work with your yarn.
