A Birthday Mara

Mr. Wiedz's mom's birthday is at the end of the month and since she will be back in the sun in Arizona and I had completed the gift I was making for her we had an impromptu/surprise birthday time this past weekend with the family surrounding #3 and #4's soccer tournament...

Mara shawl using some wonderful yarn I had found at Desert Vista Dyeworks, the color way is called "Arizona Sunrise" which is what led me to *having* to purchase it and it *having* to become a shawl for her in the first place. I loved how the fabric of this turned out. It is so light, yet when it's on it creates such warmth! The drape is lovely and the fiber was dreamy to work with. The colors so vibrant...I'll be stalking their store for more!

New blog post

I've done something I haven't done in months...maybe years! I'm blogging!

I'm going to try to post weekly (yarn along anyone)...maybe more if the mood/inspiration strikes.

I also have a new project going. My beautiful three skeins of Soft Donegal I picked up at VKLive Chicago was calling to be a sweater for #6. Children's Neckdown Pullover pattern and we've got ourselves a project. (Revelry notes here)
