Isn't this awesome? My good friend Bobbi sent me this beautiful Kauni yarn to make a Jeanne Townsend shawl along with her. I haven't started it yet, but I have showed it off a lot and admired it more. :)

This is sort of a blurry picture. But it shows the colors in the yarn ball.
I am displaying it (as per Bobbi's instructions) on my new bookshelf DH made for me recently for my craft room. She also sent me the proper size needles to do the shawl, and in this way got me to try the Knit Picks Harmony interchangeables.

DH lost his job at the end of September - boy this economy really sucks!
But it has given him time to rearrange all the furniture in the house, go through all of our possessions and purge (since he is a minimalist and DD and I are pack rats!), and make me a bookshelf for my craft room!!!!!! Yay!


  1. The bookcase is gorgeous and the yarn looks great there. I love the color of the wood, and the scrolling or inscribing on the wood, too.

  2. Great looking bookcase! Sorry hubby lost his job. That is not easy.

    Thanks for the ocmment on my blog. I'll try to send e-mail on your comment about the red sweater.

  3. Tammy, I don't have e-mail addy for you and the way your settings are a return addy doesn't show up when you leave me a comment.

    You can e-mail me at joanlovesknitting@gmail.com

    Forgot to tell you that the Kauni is so beautiful. I've seen it knitted up into a sweater and it is a "WOW"!

  4. Hi Tammy,
    I love your bookcase very beautiful. Sorry about the loss of the job. Steve just now started getting regular work from his company. Your yarn is so pretty I am almost done with my shawl finally posted an updated picture.
