More, more, more!
It's a little pattern for a partially-felted wool soaker (cloth diaper cover, for you disposable types). The yarn is from Treliske Organic, a little outfit out of New Zealand, and is literally the softest merino wool I've ever felt. It's a good thing, since I ordered a bunch of their yarn directly from their website. You have to order a kilo to have it shipped to the US, but their prices are good (and with the exchange rate, they're VERY good) so I went for it. I think I ended up ordering two cones of their Bio-Natur organic at NZD$31/cone (about $21 US) and one cone of their merino at NZD$42/cone along with a few skeins of their babyweight merino which is a shocking NZD$1.60/skein on clearance! Gotta love it! I don't know what I'm going to make out of all of it, but I'm sure I can think of something.
I've also joined a new Knit-Along, one that I can really get behind! It's Alison's "Who Wouldn't Love A Hand Knitted Gift?" holiday gift knit-along. I'm afraid of being someone who keeps joining knit-alongs just to get the button for my sidebar, but this one will actually help me reach my goals rather than just adding randomly to my WIP pile! I've divvied up my knit-alongs into in-progress, not-started and completed. I really wanted to join Laura & Amanda's "Cover Your Head" hat-along and the Norwegian Knits-Along, but I couldn't do it in good conscience (at least not yet...). If any of y'all are looking to knit hats, or fair-isle, (or perhaps a fair-isle hat?) go check those knit-alongs out!
