My favorite yarn, and the one I bought a lot of (let's just say Dad, Rowan, Snowboarder, me, etc. are all getting gorgeous hats for the holiday!) was the Donegal Cashmere.
The colors I took home with me.
And I couldn't resist taking a picture of the wall of Karabella Aurora yarns! After all, its my yarn nickname :) That's not even all of the colors.
The surprise Rowan has for everyone (especially Kim...are you reading??!!!!)....a mini-miracle happened in New York! Rowan was inspired to pick up her knitting needles (yes, she knits. literally, only knits. does not know how to purl. well, up until Monday she did not know how to purl, but she even asked me to teach her to purl at the airport?!). She finally finished the hat she has been working on for the past year or two!
I had her do a photo shoot in Central Park. She also bought some of the above Donegal Cashmere and some additional yarn at Purl Soho (seriously, for someone who has only known the knit stitch for the past five years, her stash is very very nice). She even has packed another project for our weekend visiting my Great-Aunt in Reno this weekend! Go Rowan!!
