Some kind of a baby thing......

I posted this on my blog also and I'm wondering what it is called.  It is about 18" square, made from minkie and has loops to hold the garanimal links.  You can then attach it to a high chair, car seat, etc. and link little toys to the loops.  It's quite nice for something that has no name.  Maybe you know what to call it... let me know.  I made it to go with the sweater and socks, and it is sooooo soft!!!

Smiley's yarn

Our yarn came today!!!  Carol June and I ordered together from Smiley's yarn and it's here!!!

The  3 variegated yarns belong to Carol and it will be fun to see the finished socks!  They are 90% superwash Merino wool and 10% nylon.

This is my Aran Marl yarn and I am thrilled with it!  I was afraid it wouldn't be soft.  I got enough to make a sweater and thought that I could just wear something under it if it didn't feel nice next to my skin.  It is totally soft and at $1.49 a skein I feel like a bandit!!!
 This blue/purple is a dk weight yarn that is so much prettier than what it looked like in the picture when I was ordering it.  I know I had a reason for ordering it, but now I can't remember.  Oh well.............

I thought ya'all might like to see a bit more of Gypsy's handiwork.  I should learn not to turn my back on her.
Hello,  It is wonderful to see that they new blog is up and working.  There were several that we missed at the meeting last week.  Congrats to the new grandmother.  We were all disappointed that you were not there to show us your new wheel but we can understand.  Get some rest and we look forward to seeing you next month.  The fiber came in and is wonderful.  I am looking to order again from Sheep Shed Studio if anyone is interested in ordering with me let me know.  I have decided I need some more purple. :)

Gypsy is in sooooo much trouble. I pulled my knitting out and lay it by my side for just a minute while I was reading something. I was just getting ready to cast on. This is what she did to my cable.
This is my color block vest.  It is currently on the floor for the cats to sleep on.  I sewed it up and hated it.  Lyn says I have to finish it before I can really know if I hate it but for right now it is a cat bed.
