The same day my yarn from Yarn Forward arrived in the mail. I'd bought this several weeks ago as I started making a blanket for my niece last Autumn and, not quite getting a handle on the whole Imperial and Metric thing, managed to run out of yarn. My LYS no longer carried it, so I ordered online from Yarn Forward in Canada. At last I can continue my blanket. I'm so relieved. The plan is to knit in both yarns alternately to try to avoid getting a line across the work caused by different dye lots.
Yesterday, the pull of "Let It Rain" closing its doors was too much and I just had to go back to that yarn store to see what they had left. I'd debated last Saturday about getting some lilac Cascade 220 and some gorgeous Frog Tree 100% alpaca in cream. They were both still there so I have added them to my stash. I now have enough projects to keep me going for some considerable time!As to the Little Guy's socks? I've started working on a pattern for them. There's been a lot of scribbling in a notebook and studying of pointed versus flat toe seams, but I'm getting there. It'll be interesting. Now I'd better go and plant the tomato vines that are growing out of control on my kitchen windowsill!
