I am easily amused

This really makes me happy:

Baby Kimono Set
Pattern:One-Piece Baby Kimono by Cristina Bernardi Shiffman from Mason-Dixon Knitting
Yarn: Superwash Merino by Tess' Designer Yarns
Ravelry project page: here

Why? Because I used all the leftover yarn I had of the Tess' Superwash. All. Of. It. This was a huge skein of yarn, 560 yards. I used half of it a while ago to make this for my niece, back in 2007, and the rest of it has been marinating in my stash. Now it is gone.

New life

Remember the Debbie Bliss jacket that was in time out? Not in time out anymore, frogged and resurrected as a poncho for Principessa:

That means that my older WIP is the Blue Cashmere Shawl, and guess what? It's taking a bath!

And yet a new toy

Introducing my new Kromski Harp, better know to the family as Harpie:

Table Loom

I blame this one on one of the girls from Stash and Burn, who started weaving a while ago. Interesting enough, nobody in my family seemed surprised to see a loom showing up, I guess since I knit, I spin, I dye yarn, and I make candles and soaps, they were just wondering how come no weaving so far. As long as sheep do no show up in the backyard ....

My first weaving project has come up a little rigid: newbie mistake, I beat the hell out of the weft:

SOLO Scarf

My second project was supposed to be a table mat, but I completely screwed up the calculation for the warping, so I have no idea what it will be (pictures as soon as I figure it out.)

But I am still knitting, I finished my latest Jaywalkers:
