Look What I Found...

Let me start by saying, "Yes. Using my current stash is at the top of my priority list." I'm still participating in the year-long Destash-Along event hosted by Missie at Crafting With Cat Hair. BUT...and this is a BIG BUT (I know, now you're singing "I Like Big Butts"! lol) I saw this yarn and had to own just one skein of it.
It's called Handspun Bouquet from Pagewood Farm "U-Knitted Nations" in a natural/tan combination. This yarn looks like partially spun wool roving, and it has these darling dangling flowers that hang along the length of it. I know it's going to be a cowl. I know it's going to be warm and girly and scrumptious. I can't wait to knit it up on some honkin', big needles. Perhaps 15s or 17s will do the trick. I'll know once I make a swatch.

First, I'm finishing my Beaded Shawl and can't wait to show you the finished piece tomorrow or the day after. Then, I'm going to make the cowl! I think I should finish it while it's still unseasonably cold here in south Florida. And, if I don't immediately put it on and wear it until it warms up around here...it will move to the Boutique. Can't wait to finish it, so I can hear what you think I should do with it.
COUNTDOWN: Only TWO more posts until my 300th Post Giveaway! I'm pulling together another cool giveaway package for one (or two) lucky winners. Are you excited yet?

Can't wait to see what you knit with your new yarn. You'll whip up something gorgeous for sure. I love the natural look of it. Looks like they just spun it off the sheep. Then turned it just a bit and that's what you have! I sure like your style.

That yarn is to die for. I think it's going to make a wonderful cowl! And I can't wait to see your beaded shawl - I know those are a lot of work and require a lot of patience.

Great....now I'll be singing that song all day long! hee,hee,hee.
This yarn is soooooo fabulous! You know I love it! I can't wait to see what you create!

I wish I could find some creative energy. This not getting outside because it's too cold thing is getting really old. Particularly because I moved to a place where it's supposed to be warm most of the time! Good for you though!

Cat said...

Hi Donna, I was referred to your blog by Paulette, who said you are very sweet and talented and you ride a bike too! : ) So I bopped over to see... I immediatly spotted "The Great Hog Invasion of 2009" and clicked on that in hopes of getting a look at your Harley... Well I did find your beautiful blue Harley elsewhere!
Nice to meet you!
... and yes lovely yarn too!
Smiles, Cat

Your new yarn looks so soft and I will be anxious to see what you do. My daughter and son-in-law did a bike show over the weekend. Her bike took first and his was second. Their little boy thought they should have taken his battery operated one to. I am looking forward to seeing your beaded shaw. Take Care

Okay, I know NOTHING about yarn, but even I can tell that that is some kinda gorgeous yarn! It looks really soft. Soft and creamy. And dreamy. :-)
