I am ba...ack

Wow, it was October when I last visited my blog. Where was I? What have I been up to?  Let's see...a lot of things but I will just summarize.

Since then, I (we, my husband, kids and I) hosted a sit-down dinner party for 18 in early November. Then we had a few families, 17 people, for Thanksgiving Dinner. That was followed by our Boulder Knitting Collective Ravelry group's Christmas party.

On the knitting side, I finished a few gifts (hand warmers galore...), three sweaters, shawls, scarves, legwarmers...

Along the way, I found my "new love" Madelinetosh yarn.

I love this yarn, merino DK, which I just bought because the color called out to me at Stitches East 2009. Little did I know that I stumbled on a gold mine, sort of. The yarn is so hard to come by, especially if you want to have enough for a sweater. It has a very nice lofty bounce, typical of merino wool, but without the pilling.

I just finished knitting Melissa La Barre's Tea Leaves cardigan with this yarn. I want my next sweater to be this yarn, but I guess I have to wait for Webs to restock it in my preferred colors.
