The old: This yarn. While not truly old, I bought it last year intending to have it used up by Christmas. Plans changed and it became “stash yarn”. Which qualifies it as old.
The new: It’s a new sock on the needles!!!! Nothing fancy, just a plain, old, south-soothing vanilla.
The somewhat blue: Three cool stripes! (though one is slightly mauve)
It’s a man sock and the colourway is Thunderstruck. I’m not sure how that name correlates to the colours, but hey – it’s fun. It’s hard to see in the picture, but there are three shades of orange too. First a pumpkin orange, then a slightly more coral orange, then a dark red-orange.
They are definitely not colours I normally gravitate to, but they are fun none-the-less.
I’ve had a couple good nights of knitting so I’m almost through the leg. I’m using a little leftover light blue Alley Cat (left over from Rowan’s hoodie) so I don’t have to break up the stripe sequence. I’m definitely enjoying it so far.
That’s the good news.
Now for the bad news. Remember that order of Felici I told you about? When I posted about it, it has been shipped, but not yet arrived. A few days later, it just stopped tracking. I waited, and waited, and then finally contact Knit Picks. It does appear to be lost. They are replacing it, no problem. However, by the time they determined it was indeed lost, they no longer had and of the Goth Kitty! The whole reason I placed the order in the first place. They are also out of the Rainbow, which make me sad, but not as sad as losing out on that darn Goth Kitty. Oh well. Maybe I’ll get lucky and that lost parcel will get found and make its way to my door.
