It took a long time to come: having traveled almost around the globe, from Uruguay to Europe to Canada. 'Alegria' from Manos del Uruguay is a new superwash merino, hand dyed ball of Joy!  'Alegria' is Portuguese for Joy!
This little dress is called  'Eileen' and even the largest size (3T) only takes one skein.  Top Down construction makes it an easy knit.  The pattern can be purchased from the shop through our new agreement with Ravelry and the kind designers that sign up for their wholesale agreement.  Win Win for everyone.

Helen could not resist the temptation to knit with this yarn either, she chose a pattern from the 'Hitchhiker' series by Martina Behm.  Trillian is a lovely shawl, garter stitch with a bit of lace edging.  Lovely and squishy.  Joyful!

Another reason to be 'Joyful'...painting is coming near completion.  Just waiting for electrician..then we will be ready to move yarn!
We are excited by this adventure, and for a couple of weeks we will be in a bit of chaos!  (but isn't it always!)

See you Soon.

I feel like I saw that yarn somewhere. Either on Ravlery or maybe the cool new yarn shop I found here in Budapest!
