2 Scarves done

I finished my scarf made out of the yarn my PRGE Pal sent me! I love it!

Before I could finish this one, I had to make this Dragon for my son! I got the kit from Morehouse Farm.

PRGE Pal Gift!

I got a wonderful birthday surprise! My pal sent me 2 skeins of 127 Print Filaturo DiCrosa wool in a beautiful colorway! I just couldn't wait to use it so I already started knitting with it!! I love it! I also received a nice Birthday Card and some chocolate (yumm!) that isn't in the picture because my son and I ate it already!! hehe

Thank you so much! I love the way this yarn knits! It's fantastic!!

To respond to a few comments posted...

  • The yarn for my Clapotis is from Mystical Creations Yarns, it's rayon.
  • I've never attended a Stitch and Pitch, but I do knit at baseball games!

Update on my To Do list... haven't worked on any of my projects! I got 15 balls of Aurora 8 last week and have been working on a pattern for it!

Update on PRGE... I have my first package ready to ship out this weekend! I hope she likes it!
