Finally...It Arrived

The Free Gift:

When I got home from work today, I had a very nice surprise waiting for me. This is the gift yarn and two patterns from Rowan International. I did get a chance to give the yarn a quick squeeze and I must's beautiful! This is my first Rowan yarn and I can't wait to knit with it.

Now, Rowan members on Ravelry have been waiting for their yarns to arrive. Rowan had run out of this pretty blue color a few months ago and provided supplemental colors a few weeks ago. Random colors. No one knew what color they were getting. I really didn't care what I got. It's free yarn. Okay, I really did care as beige makes me looked washed out. I'm happy with the selection and quite surprised I received the original color.

My Knitting Projects:

I'm shifting gears and will be working on some small knitting projects over the next few days and even weeks. Somewhere in between I will still work on CPH.

I think I'm burned out on knitting garments. Is that possible??? Yes. It's happening to me right now. That is the reason I have to start working on smaller projects. You know, change of pace.

At last count, I've knitted at least 18 garments this year. Whew! I need a break.

Ooo that looks so pretty, I love that blue! From your picture it looks two-toned at the bottom??

Nothing wrong with a change of pace :) Are you going to do a summary at the end of the year of everything you've made?

Trina...actually it's the plastic sleeve that's causing the yarn to look two-toned. Can you tell? I'm not ready to take it out of its package. :)

Yes! I plan on doing an end of year summary. If anything, it will help me remember what I've learned so far. ;)
