I think I put a few in there, one of which was picked up by Lindsay and knitted up into a really cute hat. I picked up a wound-up skein of pastel-coloured wool, well my daughter Eileen did. She promised she would make something out of it.
A couple of days ago, my eldest daughter Viel emailed me a picture of what that pastel-coloured skein is working up to be.
Today she posted this progress photo on Facebook, and yes it was a Wow! moment for me.I love the way the colours are pooling.Yes, my firstborn is knitting. Yay! She is making a ribbed scarf out of the roaming bag yarn. And she is using the Denise Interchangeables that I left behind in Manila. Now she wants more yarn and cable needles and easy patterns, emphasis on easy.
Caroline from the knitting group suggested I start up a sort of yarn club for her. Put together a small bag of yarn, notion and a simple pattern for her to follow. I like that idea and will think of combinations for both my daughters. Perfect present for the holidays too!
Speaking of presents, I received my winner’s package from Sheri of The Loopy Ewe.
It contained Loopy Notes, a Loopy Ewe pin (so now I have two!) and a handmade bar of green tea soap. And of course yarn – three skeins of it!
Aren’t they pretty? I feel so spoiled! This here is All Things Heather Superwash Merino-Bamboo-Nylon mix in Shades of Rose.
Bellamoden Superwash Merino Sport in Nori.
And the cream of the crop, Wollmeise 100% Superwash in Campari Piccolo.
One more look at the loot. Any ideas on what I should knit with these?
