Colorful Eye Candies!

The mailman had arrived. What timing! Now I can really start to knit up a storm. Here's the Heather yarn I mentioned in the previous post:

Heather by Schaefer Yarns in Renata Tebaldi

I plan to use this Julia Child color to knit the lace neck warmer/head cover:

We spent only an hour in Uniquities and I managed to find a beautiful hand dyed yarn from Mountain Colors called Twizzle. I couldn't resist this color combination called Snapdragon:

I finally bought the rest of this Zara Chine yarn. I bought a few balls of this yarn every time I stopped by Uniquities. Now after the 4th visit (over several months), I have enough to make a long sleeved sweater. Yes, by using this crazy shopping method, I took a chance that they would sell out of this yarn. I was lucky.

Here's a picture of another pair of Fetching Gloves. I knitted this lovely pair using Savoy by Tahki Yarns in a berry color:

And started another pair using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in a charcoal gray color:

That's all for now. Stay warm and keep on knitting!
