Catherine Kerth a.k.a.Mama Llama
Door Prizes

This weekend I spent hours upon hours being as thorough as possible compiling all there is to know about dyeing! I will only hit on some of my favorites, practices, and some fun stuff too without revealing too many Mama Llama secrets. Want to know more?.... live in the Houston and surrounding areas? Then come and find out ;) If this doesn't get ya in the door maybe a few awesome door prizes will!

I will also be bringing Mama Llama yarn for sale as well. This is where I need everyone's input.... What is your favorite colorway? Your favorite yarn line? I can't possibly dye every colorway in every yarn line, but I hope to bring more "hits" than "misses". So Please tell me your favorites! To be honest I'm not sure how much to bring? I will be accepting Cash, Check and Credit Cards. muhahahahahaha, I love to enable ;)

For the skeins that I do not sell I will be posting them to Etsy the day after for those of you who can't make it.

As Promised ;)

Cast on Saturday morning for Carmen's Birthday sweater. Louisa Harding Fauve. I have 9 balls I think with a 3.5 gauge I can make them stretch ;)

Trickle Socks, Bluemoon Fiber Arts, Cotton Candy 2 skeins ea. 200 yds. Birthday Socks for Jenn. (aka KnitWit Momma)




Mom's Harmony Sweater, Cardigan.... Louisa Harding Fauve, 9 balls... I am a little disappointed in the sizing, its too big for me and too small for mom... Technically my gauge is right on with negative ease..... But, its beautiful! Notice the arms are not completed in these pics..... No worries

y
Sunshine Yarns, Stupefy. A Harry Potter Club colorway. I was doing a"wrapped" ribbed pattern for the cuff to give it some zing... I was going to continue the entire sock but the pooling kind of took over........Me likey!



Have a good one!

Procrastination

I finished the socks and sweater.... Cough, cough, Pictures? You actually want to see FO pictures? That is where the procrastination part comes in. Mama llama business has been moving me quickly through the day.... Not to mention I was attacked by a nasty cold virus, Chris was generous enough to share it with me. Thanks hon'! ;)


A couple of weekends ago Hillard was in a hugging mood and we were lucky enough to be across the table from William who was playing with his new Blackberry Storm....He snapped this shot fairly quickly.



Hillard has been making some many improvements this year. He still continues to call us by Mommy and Daddy when he feels like speaking, and he actually has picked a few fights with his brother.... It was really cute. He has begun to bring home school work and I can't beleive how much he knows! I'm amazed everyday. Now I know he is listening to us ;)


Current Project:
Want to see the yarn porn of the sweater I am currently working on? I knew you would!
Love Louisa Harding! Her yarn is so yummy.... Got the accent yarn at LYS, Yarntopia.
I have cast on for 15 stitches per 4 inches.... and I'm just making it up as I go ;)

the accent yarn goes so well with the deep earthy green of the Fauve, they look like they were made for each other! Sadly this sweater is not for moi :( Its a b-day present for the sis over seas....



You guys have eventful weeks, and I'll post some good looking knits this weekend!
