Gray, Again.

I'm almost of out gray wool. I've spun and spun and spun.

And improvement can be seen.

Atleast by me.

I knitted yesterday. I started Elizabeth Zimmerman's baby sweater (from her almanac.) It's for my brother's baby-to-be.

And finished a merino/cashmere scarf for someone very special for the holidays. This stuff makes me want to knit with this yarn and only this yarn. It is delicious. I've never knit with a "luxury yarn" before and I can see why it's tough going back to regular wool.
I got 2 skeins of it during the birthday sale. I used one skein, and have one left. Ummm, I need something for me made out of this.
I have a feeling that I'm going to make another christmas gift out of the other skein.
How's your holiday knitting going?
P.s. Yes, my kid brother is having a baby of his own next month. Ekkk!

Oh, a new baby to play with! I love babies and as an aunt you can spoil without having to live with the baby after spoiling it.

I know what you mean about the luxury yarn. I knitted a gift out of the first luxury yarn I bought and bought some for me the first chance (sale) I had.
