Yarn: adding to the stash :-))

I have been neglecting my blog a bit lately. Some of it due to the moving and all the work and time that goes into it even months after one moves.
The other reason for not writing much is that for more then a week most of our family had the stomach flu. My 6 year old has got it the worst. Having been sick myself and taking care of him has left me very tired and my back completely strained from carrying my son around all the time. But after trip to ER and having a long weekend to rest, we started to slowly feel better. My son is back to being a mischievous little boy  and I even knitted some samples for a new shawl yesterday :-))

Today, I want to show you some of my recent yarn purchases ;-)) With my approaching birthday, I have decided to spoil myself a little ;-)). Plus, I like to have some lace and fingering yarn on hand for my shawl designs and ideas.  I cannot wait to knit with this delicious yarn :-)) I usually do not blog about my yarn purchases, but just too exited about these particular additions. Some of the yarns are old favorites from DyeForYarn brand and some are brand new ones I wanted to try. I will write about how I like these yarns after I knit something from them.  For the details on my yarn stash please visit my Ravelry page here. The yarn on the cone was a very sweet present from Borie :-))

Happy Knitting,

"Once upon a leaf" shawl pattern is now available.

"Once upon a leaf" shawl has been test knitted and pattern is now available on Ravelry and my blog.
Thank you so much to all readers of my blog and my Ravelry friends for your support and kind comments about this project :-))
Original post about this pattern can be found here.

If you follow my blog, then you probably know that I have moved to a new house a month ago. We are slowly getting settled in, but free time I had before for knitting and blogging has been greatly reduced.  I am just starting to knit again, but still not at the same speed as I would like. I have a new project in the works and will share it with you as soon as I can. I also still need to finish my second "Etude in stripes" cardi.  There are lots more to come :-)) Please forgive if I was not a frequent visitor to your blog or Ravelry page recently ;-)). What can I say, moving is very stressful and time consuming :-))
I wish you a lovely weekend ahead :-))

Дорогие читатели моего блога. Я немного тут пропала ;-)) Как возможно вы знаете, месяц назад мы переехали в новый дом. В результате переезда наличие свободного времени ранее посвящённое вязанию и интернету резко улетучилось.  Прощу прощения если я была редким гостем в ваших блогах или на ваших страничках на Равелри. Что я могу сказать? Переезд отнимает очень много времени :-)
Я только только начинаю немного вязать. Я начала новый проект о котором расскажу вскоре.  Мой кардиган "Этюд в полосочку" нужно ещё заканчивать.
Желаю всем хорошего выходного и лёгких петелек:-))

Happy knitting,
