$13.17

3 skeins of cotton ease to do the finish work of Missy A's jumper.
And I decided to go with purple hippo buttons on the sweater for the little missy. The sweater will have snaps to the buttons will just be to dress it up a bit.

Now I'm off to organize my yarn into a closet upstairs. Hubby's request and since he never asks for anything I figured it was about time I got everything in one place. Now I'm not going to tell you that I don't have a lot of yarn. I just have no idea the amount of yarn involved in this move. This could be frightening. This will definately be time consuming. But in the end this could be helpful. We'll see. I'm sure pictures will follow.

The cotton ease is so soft and the colors are beautiful. She's going to look so cute in that jumper. Good work.

I think your purple hippo buttons are going to go perfectly with Missy's sweater. I love the color of the sweater too. It looks "yummy."

I noticed your little baby set further down the page too. Adorable. We are alike there, knitting baby clothes just for the fun of it. I do it often, and most of the time I don't have any baby to be knitting for, but I know that eventually someone will be having one, so it never hurts to have something ready. Right?

I will have to try some of that cotton ease. I haven't tried it yet, but I know that I like the wool ease, so I'm sure the cotton ease will be mice and soft too.

Take care and have a good day. :)

I would love to try some of that cotton ease. No one in my town carries that stuff, though, so I'm not sure where I could find it. Oh well.

Lovely sweater, though!

I just adore those hippo buttons!

Those buttons are sooo cute!

Yarn organizing is kinda fun. By color, project, weight, "I need to donate", "what was I thinking", "Oh, I could sleep on a bed of you!"... soo many choices! :)

I love the little sweaters you are making. The 5 hour sweater is so fast and one of my favorites to play with. Cute buttons for the greag green one you are making! Can't wait to see/hear about all the yarn in your stash moving experiment! Good luck!

Those hippo buttons are too cute. I would love to organize my yarn, my hubby keeps reminding me it needs to be done, esp when it starts invading commomn areas. I am almost afraid to tackle that project though, good luck to you.

Ok that Cotton Ease looks GORGEOUS!! Only other knitters would think skeined yarn looks pretty just as it is!!

I just bought some Cotton Ease to make the Sitcom Cihc cardi. I love the texture. I had to mailorder it because it couldn't be found anywhere here.
