Okay, my birthday was back in December. However, I have been mulling over some really wonderful yarn and finally bought some, using some birthday money I received. I will be using it to make some really soft, but "funky" socks later.
Misti Alpaca yarn, from Yarnmarket.com....
Before I start on sock making, I want to finish my Minimalist Cardigan, which I *just* started last weekend, and with all the sewing I have been getting done, not much knitting is being accomplished. I do try to squeeze in about a 1/2 a day at least. Sometimes more, if I am feeling energetic in the evenings after the kids are in bed.
The pic really doesn't do it justice. It is gorgeous, and feels GREAT! I cannot wait to work with it.
