The point of me telling you my opening day sob story is that being back at work means my blog time is severely limited. Please know that I appreciate all the comments and that I do read them. I just won't always have time to respond to them. Honestly, it's more like I don't have the coordination. I've been reading your comments as I take the long walk from the car to my office area. I can read and walk at the same time, (Sort of. I will admit - I have walked into a bush a time or two,) but I just don't have the coordination to walk and type at the same time.
Work was so crazy, I forgot I'd ordered yarn. Wow! That's crazy!
|Mosaic Tile, Expression Fiber Arts|
How gorgeous is that? And how on earth did I forget I'd ordered it?
The yarn is Mosaic Tile from Expression Fiber Arts and I don't think I've ever seen anything more beautiful. It's a superwash merino/silk blend and I'm just completely and totally head over heels in love with it. I'm torn between immediately casting on with it or putting it under glass atop a pedestal. It's my all time favorite colors and I can't even describe how soft and pettable it is. I can not wait to knit with it.... and yet.... I'm sort of afraid to touch it.
I also can't decide what to knit. It deserves something special but I'm pretty low-key and don't wear 'fancy.' I'm also thinking it might like to be beaded. But would beads distract from it's beauty? Would they be too much? What do you think? I'd love to hear your pattern suggestions.
Last but not least, I'd like to take a moment to thank Ginny at Small Things for hosting her Wednesday Yarn Along for so long. I'm sad to see the feature end but I certainly understand her decision to stop hosting it. As for Ginny's timing, she couldn't have planned it better because I haven't read a single page all week!
