Had to show off some of the yarn that has made it into my STASH over the past month.

First, check out Berroco Jasper.  Is it not gorgeous?  Look how the colorway is with the scarf I am making.  Definitely going to pick up some more of this in a couple different colorways.

Check out this other assortment of yarn found at Knit One in Mars PA.  I stopped in to shop on my way back to NC on vacation.  The ladies there are all very nice and it is a quaint little yarn shop.   I only wished I lived closer!  So many yarn stores, so little time.  Any hoo,  check these little darlings out.  I plan on using the Rowan to make a scarf in the same pattern as the Berroco scarf above.  The Classic Yarn will go into a lace motif type scarf, and the Classic Elite Silky Alpaca is targeted for the Leaf Lace Scarf, whose pattern I found on Ravelry.

Berroco DK

Berroco DK

I have dappled in washclothes.  I have played with scarves.  I have conquered the baby surprise jacket.  Thus, it was time for my first sweater.

My friend Eileen and I signed up together for a Sweater Class at our LYS. Now, Eileen has done sweaters and is quite an accomplished knitter.  Me, on the other hand, was not sure if I was ready.  With Eileen’s encouragement, I decided to do it.  A sweater that is, for my niece Kheli.  At least that was and still is the plan.

Eileen and I decided to knit the same sweater, except with different yarn.  At least we would have each other for support right?  We choose Berroco’s Caisey.  I am doing mine in Berroco’s Comfort DK in a pretty pink. 

Well, made it through the first 10 inches of the back panel.  Now I am in the pattern stitch.  It is giving me fits!  I have frogged, and reknit, only to have to frog again.  I have thrown in on the floor, called it a bunch of colorful names.  Does this help..No.  But it makes me feel better in my frustration.  My husband knows that when the pink blob comes out not to speak to me, much less ask me for anything.  It takes that much concentration on my part.

Will I finish it?  Will I keep my sanity?  Will I ever make it past the back panel?  Stay tuned….
