While I wait, most impatiently, I've been knitting.
Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous and I sat outside in shorts and knit. It was wonderful! I just hope I didn't scare anyone with my lily white legs.
The sweater is coming along. I haven't measured or even paid that much attention, but I think I'm probably five or six inches past the arm hole. I'm still over the moon happy with the yarn. The colors just fade into each other and every row makes me smile.
But for the 'oh dear' part of this post....
I'm determined to knit that sweater before I start anything else. Well, anything except may something small for the baby. I'm thinking she needs socks. But besides baby socks, I want to focus on that sweater. And then..... Look what showed up in my mailbox.
Meet Static, a self patterning sock yarn from Knit Picks. The yarn comes in brights and neutral colorways, is a limited edition thing And it's currently on sale. I don't even remember ordering this skein of Peppercorn, but I'm going to have to order more. I can't wait to see how this knits up.
|Stroll Tweed Tonal Special Reserve|
This one, I do remember ordering. Stroll Tweed Tonal Special Reserve, also from Knit Picks. They've added tweed to hand painted tonal yarns and it's perfection. Absolute perfection! This one is also on sale. And, I think I also need more of this yarn. I believe Baby needs a sweater knit with Petal.
Oh Dear! With these two gorgeous skeins staring me in the face, how on earth am I supposed to focus on my Waves sweater?
And since I seem to be pushing Knit Picks today....
