So, last week in a moment of weakness (okay, two moments of weakness, but they were in the same day, so I count them as one) I bought yarn online. Well, today the yarn arrived and made my day! This is what I bought:
Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Birches. It was on sale on the Simply Socks Yarn Company website. They are amazing and have the best customer service ever (they refunded my shipping for my second order and combined the shipping… amazing!).
I also bought this:
Claudia Handpaints fingering weight in Tea Cup. These were so cute, I couldn’t resist. And in case you didn’t know, I love tea and tea cups. I aspire to someday have a proper tea service… lame, I know, but it makes me happy. Here’s a picture of the yarns together
YAY NEW YARN!
Okay, so I don’t just order yarn, I still knit with it. I started some fingerless gloves last night, and I’m about half way done with the first one now (I’d find the pattern and link to it, but I’m too lazy at the moment. The designer is Eunny Jang. the pattern is free from the blog).
I also started designing a lace shawl with the Colinette Parisienne that’s been in the stash for a little while
For now I’ve figured out the body of the shawl, and possibly a transition to the border. That’s where I get lost. But I’ll figure that out later. Who knows, I may need another skein of the yarn. That’s one way to buy time…
I should probably try and get some homework done rather than knit and order yarn… Time to step away from the computer for my own sake… Good thing I have new yarn to distract me!
