Yesterday a box arrived from Knitpicks full of woolly goodness and temptations to cast on a new project.
There's enough Andean Treasure Baby Alpaca for a sweater which I will not start until I've finished the three sweaters I have in time out. I will not, I will not!
Didn't I say I was going to bring those sweaters out this week and declare their fate? It's Friday. Only one more day in the week to do it. I'm sure once the job gets done I'll wonder why it took so long to get started.
The new yarn's color is Mystery Heather. Not very exciting but very practical.
Andean Treasure in Hot Red Heather was on sale so I ordered two skeins to see if I loved the color. It's OK, but I'm not in love. The two skeins will become a scarf and Knitpicks can discontinue the color with my blessing.
Mom asked for a hat like My Red Hat. I know she likes her knits washable, so I bought two skeins of Swish Worsted, a superwash wool.
Because wool hat weather is here now in SW Michigan, I knit the hat last night. It's all ready to keep Mom's head warm this winter.
