In Love with Karabella Aurora

Before Paige and I began her scarf, I had never heard of Karabella Aurora yarn, but now that I have worked with it a little; I am in love. It's so soft and easy to work with. It also has great stitch definition, which I like too. I also notice that A Good Yarn has it for $7.25 a skein, so I'll have to remember that I can get it cheaper than the $8.95 I paid. The pattern for the "Ravenclaw" scarf is done in the round, which makes Paige happy because she's not into purling. I'm not crazy about using circulars myself, particularly since the only circulars I had that were short enough for the circumference of the scarf are some cheap plastic ones that I've had forever. That's about the extent of knitting going on this week.

I am planning to proofread my proposal one more time and send it in, then I'll have to celebrate by having a relaxing weekend of working on my Debbie Bliss dress. I even have a recipient picked out if I can hurry before she gets much bigger!

I haven't used Karabella yet but I've heard good things - it's worth it! :-) I loved the "book talk" last post - having a book that you read together with little ones is a great idea. The Little House on the Prairie books were my favorite growing up - I actually swiped my boxed set from my parents house a few years ago just in case they got any crazy ideas about giving them away.

Aurora 8 is on my list of yarns to try! I keep hearing such nice things about Karabella yarns.

Looking forward to seeing the Debbie Bliss dress when it's done.
