I had the nicest morning. I went over to Bev's house to do our trade -- yoga lessons for knitting lessons. So lovely! I hadn't been in months because of traveling and, well, just getting out of the routine.
She finished a lovely scarf she'd knit in the meantime for her daughter.

It turned out beautifully! It's just an acrylic boucle from Joann's in garter stitch, but the fabric it made on large needles is really pretty, lacy, and cozy. Now Bev is working of the sleeves of her first sweater, a top-down raglan yoga wrap, which we started quite awhile ago.

I worked a bit on that sparkly crochet scarf for my sister's gift.
Here I am winding up more sparkle yarn! Can I exclaim again? Sparkle yarn! It's so soft and pretty...

Gift knitting

I have some beautiful silk in my sister's favorite color... But what to make? I'll try this scarf pattern and see how it looks.

Carey's over for a knitting lesson. Yeah! Her first project is a hat. She's finished the brim and just picked up stitches to work towards the crown. Awesome!
