I wove in the last end Thursday night. Isn’t it pretty? I had enough yarn left to start a quick little baby hat from the book 60 Quick Baby Knits
I am making the Ruffled Cloche.
I don’t have a specific baby in mind yet, just wanted to use some of the left over Kraemer Perfection from my afghan. Speaking of Perfection, we got a shipment in yesterday. The shelf looks so pretty with all it’s colors back! Also speaking of new stuff, the boxes are starting to pile up around here with all the goodness that is arriving. Be sure to come by and see what’s new soon.

Are you enjoying our lovely Texas spring? I noticed the bluebonnets popping up on the side of the road this week. I am SO excited! Brad and I are going on a photo expedition this week to find the BEST spots.
That will likely be my last break until after DFW Fiber Fest. Yes, we will have our booth there again this year. You can look for us across from our friends at Brooks Farm Yarns. We are bringing NEARLY the entire shop with us, so it is going to be much more packed than before. Our latest yarns will be on display and (with all this furiously fast knitting going on) hopefully you will see some lovely samples knit up.
We have gotten in all of the colors of Ty-Dy Cotton from Knit One, Crochet Too. This is a fabulous yarn, worsted weight and 100% cotton. The array of patterns is lovely and I have already finished my very own Bella Cardigan! I wore it to the Handknitter’s Guild of North Central Texas meeting Tuesday night, it’s the perfect weight for our Texas springs and I can see that it will be a welcome addition to my summer wardrobe. I spoke with Joyce at K1C2 today in lovely Windham, Maine when I called to reorder some of our more popular colors. She tells me that it was 27 degrees there today and they had just had more snowfall. SO, while you enjoy your spring knits and lovely warm days, think of Joyce.
I am hoping that by the time the weekend is over I will have finished my latest sweater which is knit out of Kollage’s Creamy. This is a milk protein and cotton blend and it feels amazing! I got to try it on for the first time and it feels like that favorite Tshirt you have worn a billion times and can’t bear to part with… one more sleeve and a neckline to go. The end is in sight.
If you come by the studio this weekend be sure to check out both sweaters and all the other new fun stuff that has arrived. Mark your calendars for April 8-10th for DFW FiberFest and be sure to stop by the booth to say HI!

The stockings are empty, the wrappings all torn.
It’s time to reveal what was knit to be worn!
I didn’t knit for many this holiday, it’s been one of those busy years here at ChezFairy, but I thought you might enjoy seeing what I did knit for my niece and nephew.
Kallista requested a hot pink and black hat. What hat would be complete without a pair of matching fingerless gloves? Right, so Auntie Lissa whipped these right up! I used a skein each of Kraemer Perfection Onyx and Butterfly. She called and thanked me, so I think they were a hit. The are so cleverly modeled by Meagan, being as Kallie was in far off Ohio.
Holden doesn’t talk yet, so he didn’t get to make a request. I fell in love with this pattern from mybootee.com, their Sock Bunnee. I knit him in a skein of Regia sock yarn and used some random white stuff for the accent. I am told the bunnee’s name is Oswald and that Holden is very fond of him. I also sent him a great book called “The bunnies won’t stay in their beds” which he and Grandpa have been reading together.
My husband didn’t even laugh (though he did smile) when I said I was going to start knitting for NEXT Christmas already. Smart man.
