Thanks so very much for your compliments on the pink ruffled baby cardi. I saw the mom-to-be the very next day and asked whether she wanted booties or a bonnet. Her vote was for a matching bonnet. I'm using a pattern from "Last Minute Knitted Gifts" that is SUPPOSED to take 2-4 hours. Ha. Ha-ha!

While I work on completing it, I thought I'd pass along the yarn love that a couple of other enablers have so generously shared via their blogs. Drool cups at the ready? Here we go.

Our first entry in the "Oh-I-Want-That-athon" is from Melissa (aka Two Loops) at Yarn All Over. She is called "Heirloom:"

Next up, two colorways ("Wild Thing" - top and "Brown Eyed Girl" - bottom) of Teyani's "Sock Hop Yarn," soon to be available through Crown Mountain Farms. Desire, thy name is scrumptious barberpole yarn.

Wild Thing, Brown-eyed Girl
According to Teyani's blog, they're out at the moment but spinning as fast as they can. Queue up for it now, as it is like the proverbial hotcakes!

Next time, look for a decent progress photo of Simon kitty's Moderne Log Cabin blanket and, just maybe, a bonnie pink bonnet. I'll try to squeeze in a bit o' the knit between birthday stuff this weekend.

All three of those yarns are great, but the heirloom is probably a subtle fav! Sometimes even looking at other knitter's yarn gives me a quick fix - thanks. Happy knitting!
