A while ago I bought two skeins of Knitpicks Andean Treasure, 100% baby alpaca, in Hot Rod Heather. It was on closeout sale and I though if I liked the color I would buy enough for a sweater.
Just looking at my skeins, I wasn't impressed with the color, didn't order any more, and now it's a discontinued color.
Then I did some swatching with it, shown above, and fell in love with the color.
So . . . Does anyone have 15 or more skeins of Andean Treasure Hot Rod Heather they'd like to sell? Please email me.
Last week I was wearing the red hat (above) and my red Land's End Squall Jacket at the grocery store when a little boy about two years old pulled on my arm and said, "mumble, bumble, ump, dog."
I greeted him and asked him to repeat what he said so I might understand. He repeated, "mumble, bumble, ump, dog."
Then his mother appeared and translated, "You look like Clifford the dog."
Now I can't wear my red coat without thinking I look like Clifford. But, that's OK. It's a pleasant thought.
One of my yarn Christmas/birthday gifts from Idaho was more red yarn. This is On-line Cosmo, 75% Merino, 5% cashmere, and 25% nylon.
I'm thinking maybe a pair of Cookie A. socks from Knit.Sock.Love which should be arriving any day now. Or maybe a scarf to complete my Clifford look.
