New Temptation

This is what I got in the mail a couple of days ago from Monika (www.yarnloopie.blogspot.com/). I'm going to test knit the Mohana pattern for her with this. It's a great yarn and a great color made by Dyed in the Wool Handmade in Winter Violet.


She also added a skein of Fleece Artist to it as a bonus. Thanks so much.

So no wonder I couldn't help but cast on this morning to see how this knits up and to get started on her test knit, so the pattern can available to more people than just her and me. I'm so special, I know, and I'm a schmuck too, but you have to forgive me for that.

The KP test knit is coming along great too. The only problem I have now is, that Monika's shawl and the KP is using the same size needle. Hmm. Timeshare?

Here is the reason for my short blogging absence:

Yes, Hubby is home. After more than a year he is finally back from his deployment and if I have anything to do with it, it was his last one too.
This is the boys, before the bus came in, waiting......

First- Love the yarn!
Second- Yippee for homecoming! I didn't want to email and disturb the happiness. :-) I'm glad fast attack submarines only have 6 months deployments. Hope the transition to coming home is going smoothly.
