Gandalf and the Giant Peach

Meet Gandalf and his peach.

After he was done showing off, it was time to get down to business.

The peach never stood a chance.

Baby Sweater!

Here is the (almost) finished baby sweater! I just need to some buttons to sew on and that's it! I loved this yarn. It is so amazingly soft and squishy.

Now I'm working on a top made from my Knit Pick's Frog Prince yarn. After three different starts & ripping out of the Tempest sweater, I accepted that Frog Prince did not want to be Tempest. Instead, I am knitting a short sleeve top with a much tighter gauge and it is working out much better!

Three Irish Girls - Cherry Blossom

I'm using my May Stash Menagerie Club yarn (Cherry Blossom on Springvale DK) to make the cutest baby cardigan! I've got a couple of pregnant friends so I'm making baby stuff left & right. This sweater is so amazingly soft.

Yarn Stash

My yarn stash continues to multiply. This both delights me & makes me a little nervous. I think I'm addicted and may soon be looking into 12 step programs.

Since my last post, I've completed Brad's naughty nice scarf, a pair of socks that might fit a hobbit and a pair of baby socks. I'm working a second pair of baby socks, and this weekend I plan to move on to something else.

I have also officially given on up knitting a solid colorway temptest out of the Frog Prince yarn. Having to alternate the yarn was driving me batty. One of these days I'll buy the recommended fleece artist yarn and knit the sweater. In the meantime, I'm trying to find a new purpose for 1000 yards of fingering weight, handpainted, wool/alpaca blend yarn. Any ideas?

Yarn Everywhere!!!

Hi. My name is Jen and I am addicted to yarn. Seriously. Stop laughing. I recently discovered Three Irish girls yarn and my stash has grown considerably. It's just so pretty! Look at this it's Tara colorway on the Springvale base and I used it to make my niece a cute little top (that she refused to model for me). I also finished another Naughty/Nice scarf. Only one more to go!!!
