Yarn outing!

I had a great time going to Sheep's Clothing in Valparaiso this weekend with Elizabeth, her MIL, Jess and Vicki. The store was overwhelming -- so much yarn, books, needles, notions and good fiber fiends. Check out Jess's blog for some pics b/c I was too busy feeling everything to take any.

I bought this nice multi-colored manos that will eventually become a baby gift, and also something that will soon (I hope) become a little birthday gift for someone who reads this blog.

Take a look at Rogue -- now that's what I'm talkin' 'bout! I'm about to start the arms. I love the way the cables came out! I just hope it fits -- I don't have the patience to take it off the needles to try it on. That's dumb, I know, but I came this far...

Last but definitely not least, congratulations to Mikey -- I'm so proud of you! He made detective!

Sounds like you had a very nice outing :)

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you on rogue fitting. Maybe you need to ask for some interchangeable needles for Christmas.

Congrats to detective Mikey

The Rogue is coming along beautifully! It was wonderful to see it in person and touch it the other day - the yarn you're using is soft and sumptuous.
