This week's Yarn Along isn't overly exciting. I'm working on a hat from scrap yarn for an auction for our kids' camp. They just wanted something in tribe colors to auction, so I'm helping them out. I've also been reading the late winter-early spring months of Amanda's book since I sort of ignored them back in the summer when I first bought The Rhythm of Family.
More exciting, however, is that I finally finished my February Lady! I really am pleased with how it turned out, and I'm happy to say that I've worn it every day since it was completed. :)
The buttons didn't seem quite as purple in person as they did on etsy, but I think they are gorgeous and look quite nice on this sweater. They also exude the faintest aroma of cedar which is a happy bonus.
When I finished my February Lady, I had almost an entire skein of Malabrigo leftover, since I bought 5 skeins for the sweater and only used about 10 yards of the fifth skein for the sweater. I found a pattern on ravelry that I thought would complement the pattern of the February Lady sweater. And so now I have a Lotus hat to match my February Lady sweater. I'm quite the stylin' purple girl this month of amethysts and violets.
