I have nothing so look at my pretty yarn!

So the baby shower for my cousin and his girlfriend was this past Saturday and I am still knitting their blanket. We bought some stuff off their registry so I was not empty handed. I will just mail the blanket to them with a note when it is done. I am almost done with the first ball so I will soon be able to start the decreases. I am using this pattern and it is a very easy and mindless knit.

Since the blanket is all scrunched up on the needles (I had no circs in the correct size and I am BROKE and have no money to by any) I will wait to show you all the blanket. Since that is all I have been working on I will show you the beautiful hand dyed yarn I bought from Miranda last night at knitting group.

She calls it mermaid tears. It is 400 yards of superwash wool and I hope it will become a beautiful pair of socks someday. This is my birthday gift to myself!

Today I started printing off patterns that I want to work on while I am up north on vacation at the end of the month. Now I am working on placing them in a binder, in sleeve protectors, separated by category. Yes I am a dork! Wish me luck tomorrow - I have my follow up with my diabetes doctor and I hope he gives me the all clear to go onto the fertility meds next month. Until next time ....

I can't wait to see Mermaid Tears knit up! That's the hard part about selling yarn you dye yourself... I don't get the chance to play with it! :)
