I was in a big panic last night because I had about 10 leaves to go and 18 grams of yarn - I managed to finish with 2.7 grams left over. Here's the details: Pattern:Cedar Leaf Shawlette
Yarn: Tanis Purple Label in Lemongrass 1 skein
If I had adjusted my needle size down to a 4.0mm which I normally always do, because I'm such a loose knitter I would have had alot more yarn left over.
The lovely Emily from Viola dropped off my order this morning. Gorgeous, squishy skeins of alpaca/cashmere/silk. 1 skein (1300 yds) will make the Featherweight Cardigan in most sizes. A great deal for a luxurious sweater - $48!
I'm going to be casting on for it momentarily!

As for spinning - I finished 100 g and it all fit on one bobbin! I have another 100g of fiber in the same color and then plan to ply it and knit something fantastic!

Do these girls look excited - it's 6:30 am and they've had little sleep but nothing could have kept them in bed this morning. Emma is the one is the helmet and Celine is her best friend - she came along as the groom!
First things first - time to get Scotty (Beaverwoods Butterscotch is his show name)all fancied up for the ring.
Now they're off to have a look at the course - two little girls looking quite professional I think!
Ta Dah! The Champion of Cross Rails Trillium at Palgrave. Lots of ribbons and a beautiful embroidered jacket bag! She even won some prize money!
