Yarn Goodness

Yarn and fabric make me happy!!  There are two knitting challenges I want to participate in.  One is the Loopy Ewe's 2nd quarter challenge.  I have never done stranded work so I chose what I hope is a good beginner pattern--Easy Fair Isle headband.  The yarn I will use is Madelinetosh Vintage in Silver  Fox and Stargazing.

Those are the two hanks you see in the lower right corner.  The blue stargazing has differnet shades of blue with a little green.

The second challenge is Madelinetosh Lover's MadMay.  I was more than ambitious when ordering yarn.  Chances are I will be lucky to finish one project.  But I do have plans for all of the yarn you see.  Starting from the left is Madelinetosh Merino Light in Afternoon Tea (a peachy pink), Sequoia and Blue Gingham.  Afternoon Tea and Blue Gingham are to make Irish Girlie Knits Summer Wind cowl.  The Sequoia is for Goldilocks Fingerless Mittens.  This will be my 2nd MadMay project. 

The pink yarn is Madelinetosh Vintage in Posy.  I have selected a new cardi for Little Miss M, Tiny Tea Leaves.

To the right of Posy is Tosh Vintage in Vermillion.  This will be for my firts MadMay project, Cabernet infinity scarf.

The gigties on the lower left are from the Loopy Ewe.  Their boxes of fun are delightful.
