The first yarn that caught my eye in the shop was the yarn I ended up purchasing. It is by Universal Yarn and it is the Classic Shades Sequins Lite. I love the rich colors. They remind me of fall. I'm knitting the Lacy Entrelac Infinity scarf and I have actually knitted this before a few years ago. I loved how it turned out. This version will have sparkles!
I also started on my Christmas knitting list. This little crochet cardigan will be for my granddaughter. The yarn is recycled from a very large thrift store sweater and is very soft and very pink. I think she will like it.

Something Silver by Veera Välimäki. This is my new travel project until it gets too big. I would like to start a pretty lacy scarf for another take along project and I have one in mind. Just have to decide on the yarn. Happy knitting.

Something Silver by Veera Välimäki. I love the color of this yarn and it is a wool, acrylic,
nylon, rayon blend, also very soft and was a vintage Old Navy sweater once upon a time. I love the sweat yarn combo and my fingers are itching to work on it. As always I will concentrate on finishing Leksak Lady first.
I haven't blogged in so long.. Family issues and other stresses made me require a little quiet time to think things out. In the mean time I went on a few day trips on my days off. The beach is really close to where I live, only a 10 minute drive. The little city of Edmonds is very pretty and sits right on the coast overlooking the ferry and ocean. The above picture is a pretty little shop in the city. Below is a field of flowers that I walk past on my way to work. Believe it or not we have had no rain in over three weeks. There was a little drizzle last night so all the grass and flowers are starting to dry up.
