Keeping Promises

Remember I promised ya'll that one day I would again post a picture that wasn't taken on my laptop? Here you go:
Look what arrived in the mail from Dorothy! Beautiful wool, dyed by Dorothy herself. Isn't it cool!?? It is very soft and the colors are so rich. I wonder if this yarn will felt...perhaps I could make a technicolor sheep???? We'll see. I am going to have to think on this. Also! She sent me the needles you see sticking out the top of the yarn. They are wonderful, too. Thank you Dorothy!!!

I can see the light at the end of the scarf tunnel now. I've completed about 20" on the second half. I'm really happy with the way it looks. I had to frog a little last night (about one repeat) because I had picked up a stitch. I really should work a little harder at maintaining my knitting focus. Believe it or not, most of these unknitting incidents have been because of my own carelessness. I know you find that hard to believe but, really, it is true!

The Grandmother Purl squares have been coming in at a steady pace. I hope to post an update there either today or tomorrow. The squares are all so lovely and so different. I can't wait to start sewing them together.

Glad you got the yarn and that you like it. If you decide to give it a name, please let me know so I can add the name to my list of colourways.

How's the arm?

Glad your ISE scarf is coming along. I've got a bit to go yet and then I'm done too.

That is nice yarn! And such pretty skeins.

Fantastic yarn and needles!

And, by the way, thanks for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Crack Show you mentioned earlier. Thanks a lot. All I did over on my site was say that a stuffed pirate monkey and a stuffed monkey in a vest and plaid pants were cute. That's all. But, look what you've got me watching! I cannot look away! I've got a Season Pass! Also, I'm from Texas originally, so this is a particularly complicated undertaking for me. Yeah. Great. Cheerleaders. (It's great!!)

Kristy, I forgot to include a ball band with your yarn. It's Emu Superwash wool. Sorry no felting abilities for it. There's about 150-170 yds/skein. I can't remember the exact number and of course I can find the ball bands. I put them in a safe place.
