Another box of Eat, Sleep, Knit yarn arrived yesterday. This is my final box from them . . at least for this year and hopefully none next year.
After the water heater incident yesterday morning, Vince said “Want to go to town?” Well, that’s a great way to make peace in this family! But I did have a package to mail to Addie. I had planned to catch the mail lady but figured running it by the post office would be a better option and he did mention eating at Chick-Fil-A so I caved and agreed. Vince said “I need to get out of this house for a while” and I was feeling the same way so we went.
We got home and Vince said “Oh, a box! I wonder what’s in it.” I quietly mumbled . . it’s for me!
In my defense, the box was only about half full. Some of this yarn was just a good investment! That’s my story . . but really! The yarn below is more of the same I used for Addie’s teacher. She has a lot of years in that school district, assuming they stay here, so I’ll probably be knitting crimson and gray for many years.
This is the Harrisville Shetland and the blurb about it at ESK says “it’s a woolen workhouse” and “it gets better with age”. These qualities of Shetland type wools is what has drawn me to them. These are 50 gram/217 yard skeins and they’ll be great for hats, gloves, other colorwork projects. I see lots of combinations in that pile!
The gold below is Malabrigo Dos Tierras. The color is Frank Ochre. I love this color! No plan for it . . as far as I can remember . . but it’s enough for a sweater.
The yarn below is part of what I need for a sweater. ESK was out of the Cereza (red) so I ordered it from another place. It’s Malabrigo Dos Tierras in Black and Polar Moon. It’s a pullover and the main color will be black, then there will be a couple of red stripes with some light gray colorwork in between the red rows.
I believe all this should be enough to keep me busy for a while!
