As promised, here are pictures showing what arrived in the box from yesterday’s mail. There was something to celebrate all of the other, not-quite-as-soggy seasons. Check out this gorgeous autumn toned roving! It’s very soft and the colors just scream “fallen leaves!” The merino wool is airy, warm and would make perfect sock yarn. Who doesn’t love warm woollen socks in the Autumn?
Steven is shown next to the huge mass for scale. Steven is a large kitty.
Representing spring is this luscious pile of rainbow dyed silk hankies. There are three bags of these beauties, each promising a treasure more dear than gold once they’re spun into yards of silken lace weight singles.
And finally, a bit-o-summer sneaked its way into the package in this sweet skein of hand dyed sock yarn. It looks so much like cotton candy that I swear it smells like sugar! I’m perusing some new(er) sock books to see if any patterns scream out “Knit me!” to this woolly confection.
In the meantime, the blue “Snow Queen” socks have been hibernated because even with my OTT light it’s too hard to see the dark yarn in the evenings. They’ll be bagged up in the wardrobe until daylight returns.
I jumped off the bandwagon today and clawed my way into a bottle of Advil during work. I’m not taking it daily any more, but every now and then, as needed, I’ll partake. Still no Diet Coke, but I did drink a regular Sprite today. Whoo hoo! I wonder if they have a D.C. Anonymous… I also wonder why the first thing you do at an “anonymous” meeting is introduce yourself. Off to look at patterns. Cheers!
p.s., all of this loveliness came from Dave over at Cabin Cove Mercantile.
