Yarn Along

Leanne invited our knitting group for an open knit at The Coop on Saturday.
I am so happy I was able to go.
It's so fun when we all get together, 3 hours of talking and a little knitting...
perfect!!
I did run the credit card a few times also, there is nothing quite like alpaca yarn.


This week I started a Donnie Hat for a new friend that has mentioned she would love to have one.
This yarn is very rough, not comfortable to work with.
Once it is knitted up, it feels much better.
It is Sublime, Luxurious Aran Tweed
40% Wool, 40% Cotton and 20% Llama


Here's a close-up, the yarn has pretty blue flecks in it making the color unusual.
This is an easy knit, less paying attention than the wrap.

I am joining Ginny at Small Things
for Yarn Along

  3. That's a very pretty green, and I do like the blue flecks. Just looking at it makes me feel itchy though. Wool is not my friend.

  5. Awesome. Starting or joining a knitting group(s) is at the top of my list in 2017. Nothing better than gabbing and knitting. Xoxo Andrea @ This Knitted Life

  6. Jealous of your open knitting time at The Coop! I too would like to join a knitting group but am a teacher so daytime groups never work out. Like Andrea, I think I should make that a priority in 2017!

  8. So pretty Debbie. Its always hard for me to keep working if something doesn't feel good to my hands.
    I really like the area you get to sit outside and enjoy. I am so glad you were able to go.

  15. Well, I must say "3 hours of talking and a little knitting..." sounds perfect to me too, except I can't knit!

    Glad you enjoyed yourself.

  22. Lovely yarn, down here Alpaca is sometimes blended with merino. A Donnie hat, is that a pull on,or does it have a slouch at the back?
