Thursday Knits: Happy Mama, Happy Mother's Day!

Last year, the Younger Son, aka My Little Sailor, published a touching post on 52 Quilts in 52 Weeks. Yeah. He made me cry. I'm sure that was his plan.

This year, he ordered this gorgeous yarn gifty from The Loopy Ewe.

2014 Mother's Day/Spring Kit from The Loopy Ewe

I opened it thinking "oh, I don't remember ordering anything from the Loopy Ewe."


The yarn is a gorgeous 100% superwash merino in an exclusive hand-dyed blue named "Finally, Spring!"

I knew just what I wanted to knit. It's the "Shawlcowl Pullover" by Susan Elston, available on Ravelry.

I'm further along than this photo shows, but I wanted to get this post up for Thursday Knits!

The photo by The Loopy Ewe is much more true to the color of the yarn. It reminds me of the Colorado cerulean blue sky.

Happy Mother's Day to all who are mothers, or all who have a mother!

  1. That son of yours is a keeper for sure! What a wonderful gift, the colour of that wool is gorgeous. More brownie points for him. Hope you have a lovely Mothers Day.

  2. Hey! You weren't supposed to remember last years. Now what am I going to do?
