Yarn Report

I finished up my Pedestrian Cowl and now I need to get 5 buttons for the closure. I really loved making this and I conquered a bit of patterning. The yarn is Malabrigo Rios in Iris and it was my first time using Malabrigo. It was lovely to use and I think the variegation worked out well for this pattern.

I figured since I finished up the Camp Loopy Project #2 and finished my cowl, I could get some more yarn. I was looking for a clear blue for my Camp Loopy Project #3 sweater and had pretty much decided on Mourning Dove Madelinetosh sport, but as I was looking for the color, I found the yarn in Blue Jeans Baby and fell in love. It is so beautiful! I got the BJB for the camp sweater, but still loved the MD so I got enough for another sweater. Move over quilting! Make room for knitting!


  1. I'm enjoying your knitting journey. Thank you for sharing it.
    Does your yarn shop not wind your yarn for you? If not, maybe you should ask them to. It's a wonderful time saver and also makes the cutest little balls of yarn!

    1. I actually have a winder that my daughter and husband got me for Christmas and it is really fun to do. I just hadn't got these wound yet. My local yarn shop has odd hours and I find it is just easier to order my yarn on line.
