Yarn

One more week…

…until I ♥ Yarn Day! Mark your calendars for October 14th everyone! I’m super excited because I’ll actually have cause to wear some handknits and bring my knitting around on the 14th since I’ll be in the mountains that day. I was so pleased when I pulled out my box of safely tucked away scarves, hats, and mittens. It was like meeting old, but familiar, friends.

I cannot believe how many projects I’ve finished over the past 2 years. I’m so glad I picked up knitting more seriously after discovering how awesome yarn can be. Because, yes, yarn is the real reason I knit. It is my vice. So my plans for I ♥ Yarn Day are to 1) stare at my yarn 2) Snuggle some yarn and 3) knit. What are yours?

Recently I’ve been working on some projects that require a veil of secrecy. At least until next week when I can give them to my younger brother. It can be tricky knitting for males, especially when that male is super picky about his gifts. All I can say is that I think he’ll actually like what I’ve made him this time. At the very least, I like what I’ve made him. Let’s hope the feeling is mutual. :)

I can share this little picture though.

This is Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Cousteau — the most perfect blue-green that could possibly exist. It’s reserved for something special. More on that later this month. Have a great weekend!!
