Well, i took out the ripple stitch blanket-- i didn't enjoy knitting the pattern. so now i am doing a slip stitch pattern. sure, i've made a mistake, but it doesn't bother me much so i'm leaving it. and yes, it is yet another baby blanket; number 5 of 5.
in an oops-my-credit-card-slipped-at-kpixie moment, i am now the very proud owner of 8 skeins of blue sky alpacas 100% baby alpaca, sport weight in a natural (duh!) color. i am using it to make a shawl from Nature Babies. love it! have mentioned in this post yet that BSA is my favorite yarn company? well, it is! also part of my order was the pattern for Rusted Root (i need help picking a good color) and Samantha.
In an effort to save The Fiber Whorl, my pal in Helena Montana has become of vital member to fund raising. one of their campaigns is a calendar-girls style calendar. she was kind enough to send me copy in part because it features my handiwork (does that mean i am now published?). i made that brown triangle shawl you see in mid-line-up.
see here: i made these socks
You're probably so tired of hearing about these socks, but i'm darn proud of 'em. Needless to say, the Fiber Whorl needs lots of support. If you find yourself near Helena, MT make sure to give them some love.

now, back to my luscious organic yarns.

Those are very beautiful socks (and I'm not tired of hearing about them!) By the way, happy belated birthday!
