And my new best friend is....

Jenn! This is what she sent me in exchange for navy Donegal Tweed:

A great trade - Collinette Point 5, Dark Umber

She's going to make something for her boyfriend. I have a friend who's birthday is coming up. Hmmmm.... Do I like her this much?

But Jenn isn't the only one sending yarn my way. I popped in the shop for 5 minutes on Saturday and Jennie handed me this soft green partial skein of Kid Classic:

Still life - odd ball with crewel embroidery

Me mum made the lovely pillow 15 or 20 years ago. A suitable throne for this lovely little ball, no? Jenny knew I wanted a contrasting color to go with the raspberry ball, to trim the baby bonnet from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, one of my new favorite books. Erika made a great heathery bonnet from the same pattern, if you would like to see a completed bonnet. My colors are a bit brighter:

A hat to match my blog colors!

I've only knit about 5 rounds today, on a tiny baby sleeve. I need to start knitting more and blogging less. This is a disease. G'nite.
