Back in February a friend gave me some yarn from a friend of hers. I always love these sorts of bags. Sometimes there is something really interesting in them, and sometimes there isn’t, but even if I don’t keep the contents of the bag it’s always like a yarn treasure hunt. Who doesn’t like a treasure hunt? Most of the bag in question was passed on to someone I know who does charity knitting. However there was one piece of treasure I kept. 100% Wool. Lovely, lovely wool. It is too much for words. Here is a picture:
Have you ever seen anything more deserving of knitting? It’s just fantastic! In an admittedly retro 70’s sort of way. Now the problem. I can’t decide what to do with it. I’m afraid lace would be lost in the color. Cables too. I don’t know if I’d ever wear the cowl, mitts, and hat I could make from them. It’s not enough for an afghan. Not enough for a sweater. Too thick for socks. Although how cool would those be??? I welcome suggestion.
Also, we’re moving to Missouri in three weeks. So I doubt there will be much reading and reviewing, or knitting for the rest of the month. I will try. I’m sure I will need the de-stressing. There are a couple of things on the needles now. We will see. But if I don’t post, it’s not because I’ve gone A.W.O.L. I’ll be back. Hopefully early in May. Wish me luck.
