Some Finished Objects

What have I been doing with all my Rubber Ducky yarn? Well I made 3 of these and a face cloth. This is from December 2009 and it's called "Frosty". Love this yarn!

This is Misti Alpaca's Baby Me Boo yarn. Its a stockinette pattern, but it looks ribbed because you slip every other stitch. The yarn has various thicknesses so you can't see the detail. This was a gift for my sister for Christmas.

Yes, some socks! Vesper's "Holly and the Ivy"

I have another big project OTN, but it's for my sister's baby shower on the 16th, so I'll post then!

New Yarn Club (I can hear your eyes rolling in your head!)

I needed another yarn club like a hole in the head......This is the December shipment (and my first) from Hazel Knits. This is Jubilee, which came with a cowl pattern of the same name, that I'll do when (hope) I get my electric ball winder for Christmas.

This is "It's a Wrap". Holy cow! I adore this!

She included a "jewelry" stitch marker that is truly stunning -- I may to find a way to make it into a necklace.....

And here's the club in it's entirety to include a lip gloss and hot cocoa. I love that she included a newsletter to describe the yarn, how she came up with the colorways, a recipe, odds and ends, and a play list. This was great!

BTW -- I already signed up for next year. I did let go of Woolgirl (it was $375!) Yarntini, and Plucky Classics so I am way ahead of the game!

Stash Updates

I had not realized how much time had passed since I posted last! Here are some club updates: First is the December Rubber Ducky club. The soy candles and soaps smell like Christmas trees! I have made some fun soap sacks and face cloths with this soft cotton yarn --Pima Petite.

This is one of Woolgirl's Holiday Kits. These are in high demand, and there were so many people on her site that we broke it! I was lucky to snag one -- Peanuts. Jen really knows how to put a kit together! The yarn is "Yarn Love" in colorway "Warmth". Look at the darling necklace of the Peanuts gang and Snoopy stitch marker!

I also got one of those triangle bags, adorable stickers, button, hot cocoa, and some Christmas cards!

I had to post this ornament my friend Sohni gave me that she found at Goodwill -- very retro!

I have been working on some Vesper Holly and Ivy socks, a secret gift for my sister, and another for my nephew that is coming in February.

I hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
