Rainy Days Bring Yarn!

It is a cold and rainy April day, and I didn't look forward to going out to the mailbox. I threw on my shoes and a hoodie and out I went. When I opened up my mailbox I was elated! I didn't get one package of yarn, no, I got two!!

From Dancing Dog Dyeworks I got my Steampunk & Tan "Jerry Kit" to make Jerry the Musical Monkey by Rebecca Danger. I LOVE the colors in the Steampunk, and can't wait to see how it knits up.

I finally decided on the yarn for my Rococo Shawl by Elena Rosenburg, this pattern was the reason I bought the Stitch N' Bitch Superstar Knitting book. I went with Berroco Vintage in Fennel. It is a truely beautiful green, and I think it will be perfect for Autumn days. As soon as I decided on the yarn I remembered I still had my 5% Back reward bucks and a free shipping coupon at Jimmy Beans Wool! It was ment to be.

So, now I have penty to work on. I'm determined to finish my Swallowtail shawl first, which is coming along a lot easier than I thought it would. I should finish today or tomorrow.
