vine scarf for anne of green gables
I was not satisfied with the vine lace for Anne of Green Gables, so I ripped it out last night and started over with a #3 needle and a seed-stitch edging. Better!

getting ready for Miss MarpleI'm almost ready for Miss Marple - I can carry my book and a small project in my new Grace bag (from Nana Sadie Rose). I absolutely love the fabric and the design!

And... I bought the yarn for the squirrel mittens - Sublime extra-fine merino wool that is lovely and soft (and dk).

As if that wasn't enough goodness for one day, I also won a contest - a skein of "The Time I Was Radioactive" sock yarn from Storm Moon Knits! This is going to make one HOT pair of socks -- thank you, Lindsay!

The scarf is pretty.

Yay!!! You finally bought the yarn! Your mittens are going to be absolutely fantabulous.

Miss Marple DVD's? Why have I never thought of that?

That Nana Sadie Rose bag is so cute! I've toyed with getting a bag from her for some time. I may just have to this year.

Congrats on winning the sock yarn. I won some a few weeks ago, the color is called tequilla something, it's an orange blend. Now I just have to learn to knit socks.

I love that blue color, its bright but beautiful

The blue is very pretty. Thanks for stopping by my blog and voting for me, even though I didn't win. I'll be posting the results of the contest soon.

Yowsa, great color(s)! I'll look forward to seeing how this works out for you.
And what a wonderful way to start a year, going after your dream of those squirrel mittens. Makes me proud.

Your posts have inspired me to look for those neglected needles and get busy knitting again! I look forward to seeing the squirrel and acorn mittens.
