A new yarn from Lorna's Laces.
Beth brought two skeins home from TNNA and is knitting the Squishy Spiral Cowl. The pattern calls for one skein but we decided to use two and make it really tall. She likes the tight twist of the yarn.

100 gram hank
100 m / 110 yards
6mm needles

$23.50 a skein

A few colours just arrived and more will be coming in a couple of weeks.

Beth snuck into our house today to see how things are going. The railings are in on the stairs and they look great. The stain on the wood will be grey.
The painting has been started. We upgraded to a grey colour. The whole house will be painted in a year or so but I couldn't have builders beige.

We are supposed to get snow tonight and tomorrow. If you have to be out and about, drive safe. It really is a good reason to stay in and knit.

Oh, yum! That yarn looks delicious!

Your neutral grey walls will be perfect for lots of beautiful knit wall hangings. ;) I'm sure you have plenty of them available to hang! I picture some of those gorgeous shawls arranged on a large wall....
