Back in business

Greetings from Northampton! Yes, the move was successful. So far it seems like we only lost one glass. This week has been utter chaos. Here's a picture of the um, Box Room (okay, okay, eventually it will be a living room).

Actually, it looks a lot better now since my wonderful parents arrived on Tuesday to help us unpack and clean. Speaking of wonderful parents, mine just returned from a vacation in Italy. Look at what my mom got for me in Florence!

The woman at the yarn store assured her it was a large enough skein for a small baby blanket. So what did we do, but leave Dave and my dad behind and rush off to Webs! I found a nice pattern and got some needles and my mom found some beautiful yarn for a scarf for herself. I am blanking on the name, but it was similar to Manos del Uruguay (in both price and beauty).

Yay, you made it! Love the new yarn for the baby blanket.

The name of the yarn is actually malabrigo from Uraguay so you were really close. It is an absolutely lovely shade of burgundy or I should say shades as it is kettle dyed and gorgeous.
I'm glad you like the baby wool. You should have seen me trying to communicate with the saleswoman in Florence. I found out about the shop by reading a fun knitting blog. ma2ut.blogspot.com (July 2005)
