I love it when I get knitterly mail! Today my mailperson brought this:
This is the yummy new handpainted yarn from my friend Catherine. She asked if I would test knit a skein for her and of course I said YES!!!!! You can read about her dyeing adventures on her blog. This skein is called Night and it is gorgeous. The depth of color is amazing. I can't wait to knit this up.
There are all shades of blue with some splashes of white (stars). The deepest blue looks almost black. She named this color perfectly. It definitely reminds me of the night sky. She has other colors available too. If you want to see them, visit her Etsy shop.
I have been working on the Bearfoot socks, I am past the heel now and almost through the gusset decreases. The rest of the foot should go pretty fast now. I work on these in the daytime if I can, because the yarn is pretty dark, and the old eyes don't see like they used to. I'm still loving the pattern and the yarn.
The GIANT bag has been bound off. The pattern calls for a turned over hem at the top, so I need to whipstitch that, and then I can felt it! YAY!!
Confession time. (hangs head in shame)
I bought two balls of Noro yesterday.
I don't know if I can hold out much longer.
I'm not kidding, that Lizard Ridge is haunting me! HELP!
