Knitters barter yarn all the time on Ravelry. I did it for the first time a couple of weeks ago with a lady from knit night. I am not a huge fan of Noro yarns, but when they came out with sock yarn, I heard nothing but raves.. so when I saw it at City Knitting in Grand Rapids, MI, I just had to buy it. I tried, I really, really tried, to like the sock yarn. This is as far as I got. My worm.
When I wound it up and took it to knit night, LadyBugKnitter liked it and offered a book in return. YES!!
This is what she made :
Doesn't she and the shawl look beautiful.
The worm turned into a butterfly.
YAY two happy people!!
I have my laundry going and my suitcase out. I am excited about my first vacation in 8 years!!
I can't wait to meet up with people, take classes, soak in a hot tub, relax, smell yarn, touch yarn ..... ahhhhh!
I have been busy yesterday and this morning reworking the pattern for the Little sock bag. I had a few people on Ravelry contact me about it being a bit big. They were correct. My pattern was off from the little bag in the picture. I am not sure how that happened, but I apologize. It is now correct and I just got done re crocheting the bag and making sure it is correct. Again I am sorry.

I have started The High Fiber Diet, more info coming soon.....
