Your greatness is not what you have, it's what you give.

There were only three of us knitting last night. Carole used a Cascade worsted weight yarn to make a headband/earwarmer. We all had a chuckle when she made the observation that post it notes only work when you remember to move them to the next row of your pattern. LOL!
 Maureen used Lamb's Pride wool for a creamy white headband. The yarn was left from a previous project and she thought there would be enough to finish the headband. Unfortunately, she was only a few yards from the end of the ball of yarn and no where near the end of the headband. But I remembered having seen another small ball of the same yarn in our stash somewhere. I found it in the second bag of yarn! I'm so glad I didn't have to go through ALL the bags of yarn!!!
 I used a Periwinkle Sheep Watercolors yarn which I think has since been discontinued. It's called Saffron and the pattern is from called "Ripples". This will be a shallow shawlette that can be worn as a scarf too.
I liked it so much I decided to make one for myself. This is Periwinkle Sheep Wink, a lovely fingering weight yarn with a small sparkle thread here and there. This color is called "Quinceanera". I decided to put beads on all the yarnover spaces between the ruffles.
It seems to be taking forever to knit this one but it will be worth the extra effort to bead the ruffles. Maybe it will be done for next week's post. I'll be keeping those needles clicking. How about you?
