Yesterday, I received the first shipment of holiday yarn in the mail! Usually the mail comes at 2:00, but yesterday, it arrived unusually late at 4:30…the minute I heard the click of the mailbox and the whirr of truck pull away, I was out the door faster than I could put on my purple LL Bean slippers. I love getting new yarn in the mail, don’t you?
These lovely new balls of Swish worsted will be turned into winter hats for my three nieces, similar to the one I made for Jackson, only with more stripes. Oooh, since they are being made to match their coats….maybe I’ll do hearts instead. Some fair-isle sketching in the studio might be in order today. The colors are so bright and juicy!
There is a second shipment arriving today, this time with yarn for a Flamboyan. It’s going to be a knitting kind of weekend! Do tell – what yarn are you anxiously awaiting the arrival of, and for what project? ~J
