more yarn rolling

I posted my trade on the other blog - so here is the yarn from my stash that I rolled this morning to start working on small christmas projects for family and friends. There are 6 skeins of organic cotton for hats probably -- but I may try a pair of knucks. I can't decide if they would be really cool or really horrible! Or they may stretch too much!! Then there is the cotton Wool in the Woods that I am going to mix with the blue alpaca/silk for the rouched scarf, and 3 plus skeins of lorna's laces for hats and knucks. I love all my friends and family, but know better then to give away large projects that I have spent soooo much time on. They are rarely properly appreciated -- in my opinion.

I can't believe that I am saying this, but I found a posting on that I am loving! It is a cashmere scarf with ruffles. I am going to have to order the yarn online and try it - because of course my local michaels (the only store around that carries lion's brand) will not stock the ruffles tape yarn or the lions brand cashmere blend (which I have to say, knits up quite nicely!)
Maybe I'll make one for my SP9 pal -- so fun to say that on this blog since it is my secret one!

Off to my real job, to support my knitting habit!!
