Someone I just met...totally knit worthy!

I was recently introduced to someone who is expecting twins next month. How could I resist knitting up two cute little projects?

Pattern: Modern Cable Bib
Yarn: Knit Picks Simply Cotton Worsted
Colorway: Green Tea Heather
Needles: Knit Picks US 8mm
Ravelry Project Page

I LOVED knitting these bibs! I am definitely making more of these! They were quick knits, only took about 2 - 2 1/2 hours a piece. They make for really good TV knitting.

All bundled up and ready for delivery.

If she happens to be reading this...I thank you for what you have done in my life in a very short amount of time.

...and now back to that afghan, September is around the corner!

Stash Enhancements

I've always wanted to try yarn from Black Bunny Fibers. The hand dyed creations by Carol Sulocki.

I mean I'm a bunny lover, just from her name alone I needed a purchase, however, I couldn't resist once she listed up her no wool sock yarn.

So, these two lovelies just happened to arrive in my mailbox this past week:

The colorways are Rainbow Sherbert and Veronica. The sherbert colorway is destined to be socks for me. The other I'm not sure of yet.

You can check out her shop here and buy yourself some nicely dyed yarns.

I also received my final color for my Sampler Afghan. The dark gray. This goes so much better with my other colors, dark navy, burnt orange and forest green.

Off a knitting I go....these squares need to get done!
