So yesterday I open my mail to find two packages of yarn for me. Just for me!!!

I got my package from Knitpicks. I ordered the Sierra (a mix of alpaca and wool) in cinnamon and leaf to make some pants for Grey. I also got two skeins of coal. I was thinking of something for dh but it could turn into a basketweave scarf for a gift.
I also got some worsted weight yarn. They say its worsted but its an awfully light worsted. I have 288 yrds that I need to find something to do with. A hat for dd maybe? I was really thinking about making her something much cuter like this and this yarn definitely won't work for that.

I also got some yarn from a trade. Its three colors of a wool and silk blend. One green that I adore and one red that I adore (but then again I always adore red) and another green that I'm not (yet) feeling inspired by.

I did finish a ribby wrap this week and am just gussets away from finishing a hyrid rib. ds needed more wool so I had to work fast.

Oh and the hyrid is made with peace fleece. My first time working with it. I'm hoping what I hear is true and that it will soften after its washed.

**the peace fleece backstory**
It was supposed to be Baghdad Blue and I was thinking that meant a nice dark sky blue as per the description. Its a lot more purple though. So its not working for my intended purpose which were to be pants, red waist and cuffs so it turned into a hybrid rib instead.
Its no matter though I know someone who's pregnant and their baby just might need something wooly.

Well by Nelly!

I've got some pictures to post!

The long elusive cardigan. I originally got some fall buttons, acorns and leaves. The before I could sew them on I found the wood star buttons. They are adorable but as dh points out a pain to actually use.

And this is my little bag that's felting. I actually meant to measure and put together a pattern for it before I felted but got so excited that there was a moment that my washer was empty that I threw it in quickly.

This is the result of only one cycle! Cascade Quattro felts really well!

Next up are some ribby wraps. My kid is outgrowing everything at an alarming rate!

I started some socks and screwed up. I'm frogging them and starting over. Ugh.

um nevermind on the bag. I don't have the yarn for it. I am about 1/3 of the way done with a pair of socks though, just starting the gusset. This is my first pair -- I'm a sock virgin!

I'm making them with Cascade Quattro in Aruba. They are so awesome and will look very Oregon in my clogs!
