My Knit Picks shipment just arrived too -- and it looks like the exact same color you bought! (Blue Bell?!) What are you planning on making?

Hi Holly! It is Vacation yarn - Ocean. Am planning this cardigan... lol.. but my plans change on a whim. What are you making with yours?

:heart: the cardigan! Is it knit in the round, or in pieces? I'm still looking for that perfect pattern to try a sweater :D . Kelly is knitting a Knitting Pure and Simple pattern (from the neck down) that looked great, and there is a knit picks DVD that teaches that method...hmmm

I'm going to be doing the Oregon Tote in mostly blue with yellow contrast. I was a little disappointed that the yellow was very pale (compared to how bright the blue was), but I'm sure it will be fine once felted :D . I bought yarn for my SIL that came in the same shipment -- fuscia and black for her bag.

Holly the cardigan is knit in peices and the pattern is from knit picks. It is free on their site. Would you like me to send you the url? I can't remember how to put an URL in without pasting the entire thing lol. I love :heart: the Oregon Tote, I have not felted yet but picked up the yarn for clogs :shifty: have been to chicken :oops: to start them though!

The clogs were a great project for me -- I was very confused when I read ahead on the pattern, but it all made sense as I followed it line by line :D . I've never done a felted bag, so I can't wait to start that project :XX: . I'll check out knit picks for that pattern, but I will wait on starting a sweater until I finish up my current projects!! I'm actually gettting to the point of needing a second set of Denises because of all my outstanding projects :oops: !! (I didn't list below that I also have a shawl on the needles because I couldn't refuse a 1/2 price sale at Hobby Lobby!! The yarn was synthetic, but super soft and fuzzy -- I can't think of the name now)
