Friday Finds!

Oh my gosh, the mailman has been very busy here at Chez PJKnits.

From Espace Tricot, my Shibui yarns for a couple of Spring, well possibly Summer Sweaters.

From Leading Men Fiber Arts, not sure what I am going to do with these yet.  The orange and blue are Bears colors.  No, I am not a Bears fan, but I have a fan who is who might get those eventually.  The yellows are to go with another Leading Men yarn that I have.  I wasn't sure which one would go best, so I bought them both.  And the naked one also is possibly going into the same shawl.  Time will tell.

And from one of my favorite dyers, Chris at Briar Rose Fiberarts.

I could not resist her 4th of July base in this color way.  It is going to be a cardigan, I just need to look at my patterns and see which one.  Don't be deceived by the line going through the strand, when knit up you really cannot see it.

Her Sea Pearl is a fave.  This makes color way #4 for me.  Her yardages are huge, and this one is going to be a shawl.  Stay tuned for that too.

Have a great weekend knitting!

Weather Report

We're back to the 60's today, but for a moment yesterday morning, it was a good morning to sit out on the front porch with a cuppa and do a little mindless knitting.  

Now of this posting, it is raining and the weather report for most of the week into the holiday weekend, it is also cloudy and rainy.  With exception of Thursday when the weather should be more May like.

Come on Illinois, give us Spring weather!!
