Grab Bags and Another FO

Another pair of socks finished in The Sanguine Gryphon Bugga! Forester Moth colorway. This yarn knits up like a dream with 20% cashmere. Knit on 2.25 mm needles using the Paraphenalia pattern. These babies are for me!!!

Got some goodies in the mail a few days ago . . . Wollmeise grab bags . . .

This first one is a Blau (blue) bag. It includes a very dark Admiral and a Gewitterhimmel (with more teal in it than my others).

Next is a Gemischt/mixed 100% merino bag which includes a beautiful red Versuchskaninchen and a very different looking Gazpacho with brown in it.

And another Gemischt/mixed 80/20 twin bag which includes Wellensittichvogelfeder (love it!) and a gorgeous Moses.

And last but not least, a twin Kunterbunt bag which has . . . drumroll please . . . the much-coveted Magnolie dark and a beautiful purple and green (but not Krauterbeet) Versuch.

All very gorgeous!!!

I also received a sweet Valentine's kit from Simply Sock Yarn Co. that includes a cute bag from Silver Moon Studio, a skein of Sweet Georgia yarn in Tough Love Sock in Heartfelt colorway, and some cute stitchmarkers.

Won't this make a beautiful baby blanket? It's Sanguine Gryphon Skinny Bugga in Holly Blue Butterfly. I have a friend whose daughter (she has 3 daughters) is having (my friend's) 4th GRANDSON in June. Isn't that funny the way things work out? It's a beautiful baby blue and so soft. I plan to double it and probably use a US 8 needle. Maybe do a Big Bad Baby Blanket. I haven't made one of those in awhile. It's my "go-to" baby blanket pattern. LOL

Superbowl pics coming soon.

Have a great week.
