While working on my latest project, a little ballet outfit for MaryJayne, I ran out of yarn. Admittedly I started with left over yarn, but when I went to the store to get more the same color (dye lot was not an issue) was nowhere to be found. My next step I guess will be to look on-line. If you are anything like me once I walk away from a project and lose momentum my eyes start to wander to other possible projects. My lesson...always make sure you have enough yarn before you begin...seems like something I should know, but apparently I am a slow learner on this particular point.

I have found a new product I just love! Self Ruffling Yarn. Premier Yarns Starbella comes in many colors and with and without sparkles. (Who doesn't love a little sparkle?) When knitting with it you essentially split the yarn. The label has wonderful instructions and diagrams on the back. I have made several scarves and I am working on a few pillows. The uses, however, are limited only by your imagination.

Christmas knitting has begun! Last year I knit for my older nieces and nephews...this year the little ones. I love doing cute little toys like the hippo I am working on now. Double pointed needles once a feared concept are now something I look forward to and enjoy!
