So I did the second round of the hand dyed yarn swap. My package is still on the way to my partner, but I received mine yesterday. Here it is! Pretty and realllllly soft yarn, maple sugar candy, olive and vanilla soap (from Italy!) and cute little koalas (from Australia!).
I am very excited for her to get mine, and hope that she likes it!
I also got a bundle of roving from Pigeonroof on etsy. It's really pretty colors of black and green. I can't wait to see how this bfl spins up.
I also got my tags for the knitters project I volunteered to do. Pretty much I knit something, anything I want, and attach little tags as I knit, like a journal. Of whatever I'm thinking, doing that day, feeling...etc. I think I'll do a shawl, I think that would be the easiest thing especially since I've got so many I want to do. I have 3 or 4 months to do it, so it will be totally doable.
Here's a little progress shot for you. I only got one row beaded so far on the swallowtail but it looks good! My gretel is still drying, and sadly is going to be huge. My MIL said that she'd wear it though, and will seam it to make it smaller. Guess I'll have to make another...
