New Year, New Knits

Ah, the new year is upon us and it is time to reflect on ones life and what new journey take. While being a mother of two little ones, life's journey is really boils down to where the kids want to go and maybe mom can squeeze in some fun here and there! Our Doodlesprout life is getting a little refresh. After weeks of looking at the same ol' thing, we have some new knits for the store!!! We are trying to work with fibers like bamboo, organic cotton, and corn. We are also looking forward to beautiful spring colors!
During the holiday break our LYS had a sale, and really who can resist a sale on yarn???!!! So of course we went like hungry hunters in pursuit of some yummy treats. We hit it big with beautiful yarns for our little store. I went home and immediately put the yarn on the sticks and got busy knitting up such wonderful fibers like bamboo, corn, and a fun superwash wool for babies! So here are some of my pics of the wip.....

I just love how the bamboo yarn looks and feels.Such earthy colors

This is the superwash wool for babies. I just LOVE the colors and how it has a sock yarn look to it. It is very fun to knit. You just never know what you are going to get!

We hope to have these in the shop this week and I am all ready formulating ideas for the corn yarn. Up that's right, yarn made from corn! Can't wait to see what that is going to be like!!!
Have a safe and very very HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
