Dave showed up today with a giant bag of yarn from his grandma. His grandma is a notorious garage sale shopper, so I wasn't sure just what was going to be in there.
It was mostly Moda Dea novelty yarns (some very pretty ones) perfect for scarves and some Patons Divine, but there was also this:It's got to be the nastiest feeling acrylic I've ever felt! But I love the label, I'm guessing it's probably from the '30s or '40s.
There was also a pair of Brittany birchwood needles too! A very nice surprise.
Jeanne asked about my cardigan - it's the Tea Leaves cardigan, and I'm making progress - slow progress, but progress.
I've knit on it for a few hours every night - I'm definitely going to have to buy my Dad a Christmas present, because his sock so aren't getting done in time.
Time is running out on the contest - you have until Midnight Saturday to enter. Mom put up some new colourways today, and there is discounted shipping - go check it out!
