I came home today to find two packages waiting for me. With all the sending yarn out that I’ve been doing, it was nice to get something in the mail!
I swapped some alpaca yarn for a copy of Best of Interweave Knits through LiveJournal’s knit-swap group and I had purchased 4 skeins of Wildfoote sock yarn from someone on
Here’s some better photos of the yarn – much more accurate colors.
I’ve been wanting to try this yarn, but every time I have seen it, it’s been multi-colored or two colors twisted together. I wanted some of the solid! Now I have some to try out and I’m looking forward to knitting with it.
I’ve been wanting Best of Interweave Knits since I knew it was coming out and now I have a copy of my very own. There’s at least 3 patterns I want to make, but probably more than that. Some of the patterns I already have, but I like that they’re all in one book instead of a bunch of magazines.
In other knitting news…
Here’s my current sock in progress that I mentioned in my previous post:
Tomorrow morning I have a doctor’s appointment, then I’m meeting Crafty Mands for a little knitting time, and once Nick gets home from work, we’re going to head out to the Taste of the Levee. Should be fun :o)
