Better than chocolate!

Last week, my bf was playing in an orchestra in Ottawa (conducted by his former teacher, "Pinky", for those in the know), and so here are the lovely Valentine's presents he brought back for me from Yarn Forward:

3 skeins of Fleece Artist sock yarn in very drool-worthy colors, a yarn-gasmic Lady of the Lake sweater kit...
...with matching brooch!

And of course, because it's not Valentine's without a little sexxxxinesssss...
He got me this book as well! Woohoo! He chose all these things himself so I'm quite proud of him!

Don't worry, it's not all PRON in this is a preview of my almost finished February baby sweater from E.Z.'s Knitter's Almanac. I tried blocking before seaming this time...


  1. Wow, you've trained your bf very well! The baby sweater is adorable too!

  2. Glad you had such a nice Valentine's day. Lucky you having such a wonderful boyfriend. He's very special :)

    Your baby sweater turned out great. Pretty color. Knitter's Almanac is such a great book...lots of variety of patterns!

    happy knitting :)

  3. What a wonderful boyfriend!;o)
    The baby sweater turned out great. It's so cute too!
    About the Tofutsie yarn. I don't like knitting with it, but I like the knitted fabric. I don't like the pooling of the color and I don't know yet, how it holds up after wearing it. Someone told me, that it does not spring back, once stretched. I don't think I'll buy it again.

  4. Your bf rocks. I'm very impressed. Please tell him hello for me.

  5. Oh yesss, I absolutely agree - this is way better than chocolate! What a gorgeous yarn, I so love these colours - and the brooch is so gorgeous too! And wow, the book - I'm sure there's a lot of great inspirations in it! Your bf did very, very well with choosing everything!
    And I'm absolutely in love with your baby sweater, what an amazing pattern!

  6. WOW! Well trained... keep him!!! Great baby sweater, too! What's that yarn?
