Karabella makes me weak in the knees and the pattern is great (reversible) He did a great job... and yes, you heard right "HE!" A male knitter named Christopher, I am simply giddy!


Here is the Yarn Aboard package and its contents.... My partner was Jenn, yep my best friend... it wasn't planned it just ended up that way! Wierd huh? She sent 2 skeins of merino sock yarn, Patons soy silk and wool, Stitchmarkers, and Socks Socks Socks, book. (not pictured)
See? told ya I luck out in swaps ;) ALWAYS!

Next Post PreviewI did Crochet Steeks on a dish cloth and it was GREAT! My next post will be a step by step guide with pictures to do it yourself! I have to get Chris to take the pics for me while I do it again for you guys! I wanted to practice on a trash swatch before I did it on a sweater! can you really blame me? I have done the sewing one, and I will do that guide and instruction (with pics) later next month.....

Lucky indeed! That scarf is stunning -- the colors were obviously thoughtfully chosen with your coloring in mind.

And the YA box o' goodies looks great! Looks like you'll have lotsa fun stuff to keep your needles warm this winter.
