Touching base

Hey guys. It's been a while since I've posted so I thought I'd say hey to all the old and new faces round here. There are some talented new guys around here and I, for one, appreciate seeing what everyone is working on.

I was asked by a friend a couple weeks ago to finish an afghan that his new girlfriend's grandmother started before she passed away. He wants to give it to her for her graduation in a few weeks. He brought me her project and the pattern and I finished it up last night. Just have to weave in the ends and give it a quick wash and it'll be ready. Then I can get back to the candle flame shawl I was working on.

I also got a great deal on some yarn last weekend. I went with a friend to a yard sale and as we were leaving, I looked down into a box and saw the edge of a skein of yarn so I took a look. When I dug everything out from the bottom of the box, there were the following:

8 sk Wool-Ease White Multi (white with irridescent flecks)
4 sk Wool-Ease Hunter Green
5 sk Wool-Ease purple/green/navy multicolor
9 sk Wool-Ease Grey Heather
4 sk Phentex "Chunky" in Porcelain (light grey)
1 sk Lion Brand Chenille in black
3 sk Wool-Ease Tartan Twist (purple/dark turquoise/dark pink multicolor)
