Yarnographic Friday



This Italian yarn has lived with us for four years and has become part of the family! Although I'm the only one aware of it. I love the dark red color with touches of other color strands running through it.

From the Mosaic collection, this Charles yarn is 83% extra fine merino, 15% acrylic, and 2% nylon for size 5 or 6 needles. With 99 yards per ball, you know I have mountains of the elegant yarn!

This is the sweater that I am making---making? I did about 25-30 rows four years ago. Does that count as making??
The twisted stitch adds a beautiful finishing touch to the cuffs and the bottom edge.

Now for some natural beauty living on the fence in our backyard. I never tire of seeing this view from our deck.

There are few nudities so objectionable as the naked truth.

Nice pictures! I especially love the vines. I can see why you don't get tired of the view.

Mosaic has a lovely drape. Send a card to your neighbor's with a note saying 'surprise in the works!' That way you can see the baby and work on the gift. Good Luck!
