A birthday present…

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!

I’m lucky to have today off work so I’m taking advantage of having no one home except my puppy and he’s napping so I’m knitting! Of course!

I’ve put aside my poncho I’ve been working on to make a birthday present for a friend. It’s her birthday at the end of January.

I’m using a pattern I’ve used before (you can find it by clicking here) but this time I’m using a Tweed yarn from Caron Simply Soft I purchased from YarnCanada.ca.  I have to use 7 balls instead of 5 though, as the balls of tweed yarn are a bit smaller.

This is my first time using this tweed yarn and I’m absolutely loving the results.

Well, off to get this blanket done. 😀

Happy knitting!
