Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day! I hope you’re having a restful 4-day weekend, because I’m not. Too much hanging out to be restful, but I’m having a lot of fun.
I recently got an order from Knitpicks, but haven’t gotten around to photographing it until now. In it, I got:
Birthday yarn! Yes, my birthday was way back in October, but several of my awesome friends decided to get me a gift certificate to Knitpicks and this is what I got from it, 7 skeins of Gloss Fingering in Seafoam. (It was pretty awesome that the sum came out to be almost exactly the amount they gave me! Only 3 cents off the mark.) Someday, it’ll turn into an Apres Surf Hoodie, one of the sweaters of the year.
4 skeins of Gloss Fingering in Kenai. (Can you tell I really like this yarn?) This will turn into Henry, which is a gift for someone, but if he doesn’t want/like it, I’m totally okay with stealing it for myself, because I love scarves…
And finally, 2 skeins of Stroll Glimmer in Carnation. I’m planning on revamping my Chou-gok (Little Mums) pattern and I want to try the shawl out in a different colorway.
I really need to knit more. I keep wanting more yarn, and so now there’s plenty of yarn, but not enough FOs… Plus, I like FOs in lighter weight, which takes more time. No more yarn for a couple of months.
