Hi-ya! So far no one has said that to me yet, but I also haven’t been around too many Brits just yet. Most of the people I spend time with are in the program. Not that that’s a bad thing, it’s only day 3. We started orientation today, and it’s been busy so that’s good. This evening hasn’t been so busy, so I’m feeling homesick. I’m not a big fan of transitions, so being over here and away from home and everything I’m familiar with is kind of hard. I’ve got to get used to it before I can really branch out and explore the city. It probably doesn’t help that I have hardly slept the last few days. Hopefully I won’t have the problem tonight, cause Kathleen has melatonin. It helps you fall asleep, which I have been having some serious issues with. Hopefully things will settle down soon, and I’ll finally be able to stop having crying fits in the evenings. Those are not so fun. I can’t wait for this transition shit to be over.
But enough about homesickness, and more about yarn!!! Mouse keeps telling me to post pictures of the yarn that I brought with me so she can see it all before she leaves. Well, here are pictures of it in bags. The individual skeins can be seen on their own as I take them out of the stash. So here are the pictures:
That’s the lace bag. It has the Feather and Fan shawl from Folk Shawls with Interlacement’s Lace Weight. Also Sarcelle in light cream/white Marino/silk blend (you can’t really see it, but it’s right above the malabrigo). The green-ish-blue skein is hand dyed, by yours truly, and the same yarn as Sarcelle. It’s for a leaf scarf. The other lace is the Malabrigo lace weight in Pearl for the Wing of the Moth Shawl.
This is sock bag one, and it has two skeins of Jitterbug, one in Marble and the other in Copperbeech. There are also two skeins of Mountain Colors and two of Rio de la Plate (or as Mouse and I call it, River of the Plate). I’d link all the yarns and colors, but that’s just a pain and I’m not in the mood. Cut and paste!
This bag has two skeins of Opal. The blue skein is the London skein I bought with Mouse. I miss my Mouse… Anyway, the other yarns are a skein of Schaffer Anne and some Brown Sheep Wilde foot for my Grandmother’s socks that I was supposed to fix a long time ago. Oh well. I’ll get to them by Christmas.
That’s all the yarn I brought, and I already showed pictures of current projects. I should have scenery shots soon. I haven’t really had a chance to take pictures just yet. Soon though. By the weekend I should have some to show.
