Quaker Yarn Stretcher Progress

Even as the rows get longer and longer, and the time to complete each row becomes longer, I find I am having trouble putting this project down!  The yarn has such great color changes I feel I must make it to the next change before I can stop.

Quaker Yarn Stretcher after 8 repeats

I have finally made it to the pink section.  I wasn’t sure I was going to like it as I am not a pink loving person, but I LOVE it!! 

New Yarn and Projects!!

We have been traveling and one of our stops was Driftwood Yarns.  The owner was super friendly (we wound up talking for more than an hour!) and super helpful.

This is her store.  Isn’t it the cutest!!

I bought some really yummy yarn there.

These are intended to become Quaker Yarn Stretchers.  I think I will start these soon!

I didn’t leave with just those!

These also wound up in the basket slated to become Swing Knits Autumn Fusion Shawl.  To be fair, my 18 year old daughter saw the sample and begged me to make it for her.  The blue is for her the bright colored one is for me.  I couldn’t make just one, right?!


This one is destined to become a  Blue Water Cowl.  The sample in the store was soooo soft and beautiful, I just had to make one.

These will be socks.  Elizabeth (the owner of Driftwood Yarns), has convinced me to try knitting two at a time.  We will see how that goes!!

Then there is this yarn.  A complete impulse buy!!
