Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

What is Wrong With Me???


Hey, it’s Maria.

OK, I have all these great projects going. So what do I do? Start another one. I started Mr Greenjeans from the current issue of Knitty.

The yarn I’m using is Fiesta Boomerang, an extrafine merino wool, in the colorway Wild Oak. It’s such awesome yarn to work with. It’s sproingy and soft.

The yarn is round and the stitch definition is great. I can’t wait to get to the cables. I’m still trying to decide if I’m going with the 3/4 sleeves or not. I usually shove the sleeves up anyway. And to finish off this project, I’m making matching socks using Baby Boomerang.

I ordered the Baby Boom from The Loopy Ewe. And, no, I’m not going to admit to ordering anything else. Would you pay full shipping for just one thing?

Look for the next post by Maria: I’ve Got Flowers Growing in my Crack.

Hey Lexi, did you know that my laptop died tonight?

  1. Glad I am not the only one skipping the YO increases. Wow, matching cardi and socks! Awesome.

  2. Love the yarn and stitch definition. Tempting me to order some!

  3. Nothing “wrong” with you – you’re just a knitter. How cool to see a pattern I’ve got queued knit up with a yarn in my stash I’m dying to use too. Thanks for sharing!
