SP strikes again!  I love beading so she sent me all the things I need to make this little number from knitty! The shadow from knitpicks is sooooo soft!  I must buy more of this stuff..  I plan to make a hat from the wool ease and the kids love there bubble makers.  The hand soap is so funny!  It is for over worked moms:) the jokes on the packaging cracked me up..

Here lies the most itchy yarn I have ever felt Bartlett yarn, besides peace fleece!  I must saw peace fleece is almost tolorable...I was going to make the HG sweater with the snowflake boarder with this, but it is sooo itchy.. it is suppose to "bloom" in the wash, will it soften up too? This is definatley fr outerwear! like Rouge? ;)

I just finished a Christmas stocking using Bartlett Yarn, and it does soften up considerably after washing. I wish I'd thought of pre-washing it because working with it was my worst knitting experience to date. Personally, I think it'd still be too itchy to wear, but then I'm rather picky about such things.

Hey Cath! Your Hourglass is knitting up so quickly! I haven't touched mine in awhile - but it is a fun and simple knit ;) Can't wait to see more!

Fun gifts too!
