FIrst, thank-you for all the lovely comments about our new home. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but we are looking foward to it.
Now to the crafts!
I have a bad habit of breaking sock needles (Mostly from sitting/stepping on them). I really prefer the Knit Picks wooden needles for their great points. It wasn’t too bad when I could just pop over to Lens and pick up a new set whenever I broke too many.
Unfortunately, with our COVID numbers still through the roof, all our non-essential stores are curbside pick up only. And calling and ordering, then driving over to pick them up… it’s just too much effort for me!
So I decided to do a Knit Picks order. Can you see where this is going?????
Yes… I ordered more yarn.
Not a lot. Just enough to get me free shipping. They only had a few colours of Felici left – and though they were on clearance, none tickled my fancy.
So I decided to give their Stroll a try. I’ve seen many of you knit with it, and haven’t heard any complaints. The leftmost one is Yeti – light and dark grey with a touch of aqua… which I thought would be nice for man socks. The next is Koi Pond, which several of you have used, and I’ve always admired. Next is Gumball – a fun rainbow skein to make up for the Rainbow Felici that got lost. Last is another skein of Static, in the Seascape colourway. Probably destined for more man socks at some point.
Now, this yarn was ordered BEFORE we put the offer in on the house, so this will definitely be my last yarn purchase for a good long while. It’s not like I’m going to run out of yarn – I still have a whole bucket to dye up!
