What Kind of Knitting Needle are you?

Take this quiz

Mine was super interesting. :D Hit the nail on the head. LOL.

You are bamboo.
Warm, cozy, and thoughtful, you take your time and enjoy how things feel, smell, and taste. You love the craft and beauty of traditional things, and you value the comfort and experience of knitting as much as the results. But while you are reveling in your warm cozies, don't get stuck. Warm is wonderful, but so is the whole wide world!

I have some yarn coming from a wonderful friend and I can't wait to see what she has sent me!

Newborn Fluffy Stuff

So I've really learned how to knit and I feel like my knitting has become pretty good. I decided I wanted to make something for the baby on the way and a friend gave me some wonderful Malabrigo Merino yarn.

The Results?

Beautiful huh? I'm really happy with the way it came out. :) It's so soft too! I think it will be a wonderful set for the baby.

I do need to make some more for my baby still in diapers. I have another friend that's sending me more yarn and then I can go to town on some more sets. :D

Also I'm helping in a fundraising effort for the Breast Cancer 3-Day walk. We are helping Christine to reach her fundraising goal of $2,200. (You can find Christine's official fundraising page HERE) Christine's friend Shelley and I are donating a cloth diapering set as a drawing at my store.

Here's a sneek peak at what those look like:
