Temptation Thursday

This Thursday my temptation is a yarn that I have been working with on a super extra secret project. It is beautiful and I love the feel of it.

   The yarn is Shibui Staccato in the color Ivory. I love the color of this yarn and how shiny it is.  I can't wait to get a couple of skeins of this yarn and make myself a pair of nice socks, or a shawl, or a sweater. The options are endless!!!

Temptation Thursday, Feb. 10, 2011

This Thursday there isn't a yarn that's going to be featured since my wonderful hubby and I are in Boston, Massachusetts. So no knit night for me although there was a lot of knitting on the 6 hour flight;  along with a very rough chart and design for a pattern that I have in mind. I can't wait for all of you to see it.
Here are some pictures from Boston, it was a great city.

It was a truly enjoyable trip. It was nice to get away and relax for a few but I truly did miss those individuals that I see on a daily basis. I'm glad to be home. Thank Boston for a good time.

Temptation Thursday, Feb. 3, 2011

I know I haven't been as good for posting. Sorry about that. On February 3rd, I stumbled into a yarn that totally caught me buy surprise. So much that it almost caused a riot between my knitting girlfriends and I since I was soooo tempted by it. 
Here it is..

Yarn: Auracania Yarns, Trauco
It is 100% Cashmere and 321 yards of pure bliss.  Wish I could have you yarn... you are going on my list for next year.
