    Lion Brand Comfort Shawl

    I tried to use Chenille Thick & Quick for a prayer shawl and it just didn't work- it was way too bulky and it shed when I had to frog. I would definitley go with Homespun or something along that line.

    Holiday Gift Exchange-SIGN UP'S, THANK-YOU'S & UPDATES HERE

    I received a package this morning from another rescue elf, I believe it's from LovesTenderTouch. Inside was a notepad and pen set, and 3 balls of gorgeous blue/purple variegated mohair yarn! It is sooooo soft...I've never used mohair yarn before so I'm very excited to find the perfect pattern for it. Thank you so much!

    Giant Granny Square Afgan Along?

    Wow, the blankets posted are so pretty! Is anyone still working on this? Or are you all finished by now? I had started one with Bernat Softee Chunky and it just didn't take off, so I frogged it. Now my rescue pal from the Holiday Gift Exchange sent me the most awesome color of purple Caron SS so I'm starting one all over again. I'm already on row 20 or so...worked on it all night while hubby and his brother played video games. I'm so excited about this one because it is turning out much, much better than the Chunky one.

    Holiday Gift Exchange-SIGN UP'S, THANK-YOU'S & UPDATES HERE

    I received the most wonderful package yesterday, from my rescue elf- coolhockeymom! It came at the perfect time, too~ my 2-year-old got food poisoning and cannot hold anything down. I've been cleaning up after her for the past 2 days, as well as myself, since she only wants to be held by me. Then this morning found out that someone made false checks and has been writing them to my bank account! Thankfully the bank was cooperate but sheesh- the week I've been having. So, anyway, yesterday hubby came home from the neighbor's and said, "Hey, do you know there is a huge box on the patio?" I had been cleaning right next to the patio door and hadn't seen or heard the mailman! LoL Of course I ripped it open immediately, and it was just filled with awesome things. What she sent was...2 pattern books and a tear-off pattern 5 skeins of ww yarn in various colors 3 skeins of Bernat Galaxy (which is awesome because I bought one skein in the exact color last year and haven't been able to find the color since) 2 balls of a gorgeous variegated wool blend yarn A skein of Sugar n' Cream cotton in my favorite shade of blue A handmade potholder and a dishcloth A beautiful 12" square Bath gel An awesome handmade hook case, with places for tape measure, scissors, stitch-markers...all of which she thoughtfully included! Plus a brand-new bamboo hook. Kitchen-Aid measuring cups, measuring spoons, and spatula (I love Kitchen-Aid!) A jungle-themed trash can from Target...my girls' bathroom is done in their jungle line and the trash can is the only thing we don't have. Hershey's chocolate sticks, Jelly Belly candy corn in Christmas colors, and candy canes Coloring books and a Rudolph movie for my girls Anyway, I just want to say thank you, Danielle, from the bottom of my heart. You really went out of your way and I truly appreciate it, especially with your broken foot and all. Thank you.

    Get Woolie! Wool Yarn Swap! - All Done!!!!! :)

    Sent you an update to that question. We don't have HL or AC Moore here. I guess we don't really have anything that's "exclusive" to the west coast...we have plenty of LYS' around here but most of them are soooo stinkin' expensive.

    Get Woolie! Wool Yarn Swap! - All Done!!!!! :)

    We don't have a Hobby Lobby nearby- I think it's an east coast thing. I would love some kind of yarn from there. You may have different colors/brands there that I cannot get out here. Lots of people simply aren't comfortable putting their cc info online and that is ok- it shouldn't deter you from the swap! There are plenty of places to get yarn besides the internet.
