a few things....

I have this amazing girlfriend, who happens to be the most generous and kind hearted much so that she was willing to share some of her Wollmeise loot with me.

For those of you that don't know Wollmeise, it's like the FMF of the yarn world. I was so thrilled that I couldn't prevent myself from immediately winding it and starting a new project!

This beautiful yarn is a dream to knit with and I am so excited to be starting my first shawl. The pattern is called Trillian and can be found on Ravelry.

I also received an order in the mail of some new Madelinetosh......I have such a serious addiction to this yarn, I want it all!! It's all so YUMMY!

As for sewing, I did manage to make a few project bags for my girlfriend as a thank you.

I especially love the FMF bag and I actually used up a good amount of my small scraps.

Now, back to my needles....I have about a dozen projects in the works, I am definatly in a knitting frenzy.


  1. Love the wool and the fmf bag is simply stunning! xo

  2. HOW do you do it all my friend??!!

    xo, H

  3. Best use of FMF scraps I've seen in a while! Adorable bag. My mom would kill for some of that yarn -it is stunning!!!

  4. Wow that bag is awesome!!! I need to whip one up for my million WIPs. and what is this Wollmeise?? I've never even heard of it. Must go investigate!!
    Yummy, yummy tosh. I just cast on a new cardi with the dk in Gossamer and I love it. And I finished the Herringbone Cowl! Knitting frenzy - I know the feeling! But I feel like my sewing machine is being neglected. So many projects, so few hours.
