Got my Make-a-scarf swap package today from Lennette in Florida!
Included in the package is Nicole Hindes’ Strangling Vine Scarf pattern from her blog All Buttoned Up. This is an RAOK pattern – the designer asks that if you knit this, or even read the pattern, you perform at least one random act of kindness. I love this idea, and I may well adopt it in the future with a few of my own RAOK patterns! In the meantime, I will try and do my duty and will post about it here, like I posted during my mitzvah month.
Also in the package:
- Some ultra-soft naturallycaron.com Spa yarn in a colour called berry frappe!
- Addi natura bamboo knitting needles
- And some lavender scented Eucalan fine wool wash, the best.
I hope Lennette likes the package I sent her – it hasn’t yet arrived.
Another great swap package! The addiction beast has been fed… 😀
Back at the ranch, the Central Park Hoodie back and front pieces are blocking, and I’ve started the sleeves.
Kidlet is getting antsy – she really wants to wear it already, and we seem to have skipped spring and moved right into summer in March. Temperature in the 90s almost all week. Only one really bad day – dust in the air so thick the media was broadcasting warnings to people with respiratory problems to stay indoors.
This was taken in the middle of the day, and believe it or not, there’s a building and a hill behind that wall. That’s how bad visibility was. Yuck.
We’re getting ever closer to the 100th post, and every comment equals one entry in the chance to win the sock yarn! (Kidlet posted and said she gets a chance too, but I explained that family members are ineligible, them’s the rules…so she’ll help me with the drawing of the name!)
And we move into the weekend…..
