It’s not like Vince really cares if I get new yarn but I’m at the point where it’s probably best that he not see any more yarn coming in the mail. Know what I mean? I’m loving my Hollygrove scarf and I want to make one for my friend. The pattern takes about 2-1/2 skeins of the Madelinetosh Vintage yarn but what am I going to do with the leftover half skein? That was easy! I’ll just order 5 skeins and make one for myself in gray because I don’t want to wear a red scarf every day! It’s way more gray than it looks in this picture. It’s very pretty and will make beautiful scarves . . one for my friend and one for myself!
I’m not real happy with my red Vintage yarn because the dye just doesn’t seem to be saturated through the yarn and I’m getting lots of undyed areas showing but I love the twist and feel of the yarn and it gives great definition to the cables so I thought I would give the Madelinetosh Vintage yarn another chance before giving up on it. The gray seems to be dyed much better than the red. Maybe I just got a bad batch of red.
I figured if I ordered the yarn on a Sunday, it would be shipped priority mail on Monday and would be here Thursday or Friday at the latest. That was til it snowed and the mail got shut down at the Eat, Sleep, Knit post office and my yarn didn’t go out til a day or so late so it came on Saturday. And, you know who is home on Saturday. He didn’t say anything but I was all ready if he did! I’m making Christmas presents early for next year. Who can fault me for that, right?
And . . Eat, Sleep, Knit sent me a lotto card. I think you get one with each order.
Scratch ’em all off and see what you win!
I got $5 store credit. Can’t beat that. Now I’ll have to order something else.! Darn it! 🙂
