Yarn Along!!

I have been knitting a lot - a really lot...
When I love what I am working on, I knit more often and I am happier!

The Guernsey Wrap
Knitted with Cascade Yarns
100% Undyed Baby Alpaca Yarn

It is 21 inches long now...I am still pretty far from the halfway point.
And on a side note, I have been looking at my bird books more frequently,
as some birds look differently in winter and as others migrate through.

This wrap is just a combination of knitting and purling...
the way you join them together, is what forms this pretty pattern.

I am getting ready for my girls trip to Rhinebeck, New York this weekend for their
Sheep & Wool Festival
To say that I am excited is an understatement...
I am more excited than a seagull with a french fry!!!

  4. Beautiful...I love the color and you do great work. I decided the other day while sitting on the deck that I needed to get my mom a bird book. She would enjoy that. I have one around here somewhere but can't locate it right now! haha....with me there is no telling where I put it.

  5. LOL I love how excited you are, Debbie! Your knitting is perfection!

    Speaking of sea gulls; one time (years ago) I was in Daytona Beach with girlfriends. Two of us were sitting in lounge chairs, each holding a drink when a gull flew over and dropped a s*it in my drink. We laughed so hard! You're going to have such a wonderful weekend; I'm happy for you.

  16. I just returned from a vacation down south and my daughter showed me her new project and gave me a book to pick what I wanted for Christmas! I rather liked the dragon scarf she was making for herself and that's the one I want too! Different colors of yarn though!
