Because I was distracted by knitting up a worsted shawl (winter weather does strange things to my brain) I had time to go shopping and pick up some more yarn for my fingering weight shawl.
Knit Picks Stroll, a hand-painted fingering weight yarn. I stopped into the Knitting Boutique and found this fun pop of green-yellow that will create what I hope will be a fun pop of color in my next West Knits shawl. If you're in the area, you should check them out. They have locally spun and dyed yarn in a variety of fibers and colors.
Inkscape long enough to come up with a basic design for an in-the-hoop stuffed heart to celebrate Valentine's Day. Drawing the heart shape wasn't terribly difficult. Creating the in-the-hoop embroidery design was the hardest part. It still needs work, and I'm not sure this is the best font but I really like how it turned out. I need to dig into my embroidery software a little more to see what I'm missing.
