Here’s a little visual to help you figure out our family. There’s a typo, but I’d have to redo the whole thing to fix it. So let’s just say I did it on purpose. In future posts, I’ll spotlight each one and explain each nickname.
I promised to show you my latest new project.
It’s Hypoteneuse by Anne Hanson and I’m pretty sure it’s her fault I started it. It’s a good thing Christina lives in Texas and I live in Minnesota, because I’m pretty sure we would get into a lot of trouble together.
The yarn is Handmaiden Silk Maiden and it’s heavenly. I love working on it at night because the colors are much richer in that light. I thought about photographing it with a glass of red wine, some chocolate, and a buch of raspberries, because that’s what it reminds me of. It’s just so decadent! And I can’t tell you what the colorway is because I bought it on ebay, and the color wasn’t labeled.
Here are a couple of new yarns that have made their way into my house. I was going to swatch them last night, but I decided to be an adult and clean up this house.
This gorgeous pile of yarn is Twisted from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. The colorway is Spinel. I didn’t capture the depth of color in this yarn. It’s much deeper. The cute button came in my package.
I’ve just begun knitting more with Lorna’s Laces, and I think this yarn will seal the deal for me. This is Shepherd Worsted weight, purchased at Jimmy Bean’s Wool. The colorway is Roadside Gerry, in honor of Annie Modesitt’s husband, who is fighting a battle with multiple myeloma. I met Annie and Gerry this summer when her family was vacationing at a nearby lake. When I saw this colorway, I decided it needed to become a sweater, probably for me. I won’t know until I swatch it and it talks to me.
But before I swatch, I’m trying to convince myself to finish my Must Have Cardi. I’m pretty sure Discipline is a swear word.
