Look at this gorgeous fancy yarn!

Marji from Fiber Arts Afloat sent me a package!! Shiny, soft purple and pink fancy yarn. I swear I haven't ever used yarn this fancy before, ever!! Two are Kid Mohair. I'm so excited!! Pardon those darn exclamation points. This super cute yarn came with a scarf pattern, wrapped in the cutest little lizard paper. Cute, cute, cute!!

I'm still knitting baby things for The Dutchican Three. I have 2 pair baby socks, one pair of baby booties, and 3 hats planned, started, or finished. My friend Cindy also gave me an adorable handknit blankie, and baby mittens to send with my stuff. I also just found out about a different little Michigan baby coming soon, but it's a secret, so I have to wait to talk about who's baby it is until other people hear about it. I know a secret .... I know a secret. And No way is it my secret! We have three kids and three is enough for us!

Tomorrow, I'm going to go knit with my friend Carrie. She finished a scarf she wants to show off, and she just cast on for a sweater. I really need to find time to help my friend Cindy start her socks, too. Life just keeps getting in the way of all of the knitting I want to do.

Gotta go deal with life, and knit some hats. hehe

Man, that yarn is stunning! Funny, I've got a secret about a friend of mine that I can't share (I'd imagine it's the same secret) and I want to shout it to the world! Hooray for 2007 babies... :)

Dealing with life, oh yeah, funny how that can get in the way of knitting time--though I like to think it's how I keep on managing to deal with life!
