I love the rib detail. I used some gorgeous wooden buttons I bought at the Sow's Ear in Verona. They have great buttons there by the way.
The yarn is so light and airy, a real treat to work with. I enjoy a rustic natural yarn and I consider the Silky Wool to be in that category.
This is someone else's collection of yarn. TC is her name and baby hat knitting is her game. At least for the moment. I had a few balls of this in my stash and then she collected a couple more. It is Be Sweet Bambino Taffy and is set aside for TC's ongoing charity knitting. It looks like candy and it makes TC really excited about her baby knitting.

Here is one third of my 4 oz. roving from Maine Woods Fiber in the Hyacinths colorway (from the swap package). I am going to try to 3 ply for the first time. Can't wait.
I tried Navajo plying for the first time with the Knit Girllls fiber that I talked about before. It was interesting because I felt like it was way overspun but then after I soaked it and put a light weight on it while hanging to dry it seemed to straighten itself out.
It's about a dk weight and I got 204 yards out of just a little under 4 oz. It's so pretty.
