as promised...

See, there has been spinning. This is a mixture of about twenty different fibers, all put into a big bin and then pulled out in bits & carded on hand carders for a more deliberate placement of colors. I love this skein quite a lot. It will be available for purchase on Material Whirled soon.

Noro Ruffle scarf -- wonderful ravelers have come to my rescue and are sending me some bits of their leftover noro kuryeon sock yarn in this colorway so that I can finish this scarf.

It is loosely based on the Cascade Ruffle scarf pattern, but "amplified" with more rufflies to make the noro have a bit more life. I think I am going to wash & maybe even throw it in the dryer a bit when it is finished to see if I can fluff it up & soften it a bit.

Next up, my plurkswap goodies. I was totally and completely spoiled by MsKnottyKnits. She sent me fiber (which you will get to see in an upcoming post) and chocolate and a lotion bar and a sock monkey and, and, and, and... let's just go straight to the pic:

Oh, and see those post-it notes, the ones on the cute little notebook? They are the coolest post-its EVAH! There are 3 little packs of flaggie post-its and they say "Look" "Like" and "Love". How perfect is that for the knitterly girl? Damn perfect.

Okay, I don't want to spoil you guys with picture overload, so next post you will get to see pics of the little people, including the new nephew who is so stinkin' cute will be hard pressed not to nuzzle your computer screen, I promise.
