When we unloaded the van after our vacay, I found some sock yarn I’d forgotten about:
That striped OnLine sock yarn has something in it – alpaca or bamboo – that makes it sooo soft. Will have to examine in more detail when I get around to cataloguing and storing my yarn purchases. I spent some time yesterday getting my office sorted out and organized but the yarn will have to wait a few days. I was looking for someplace to stash the yarn and realized I will have to do some culling or reorganizing. I brought home this yarn above, the yarn I got at Knits by the Sea, Urban Yarns, and Three Bags Full. I didn’t get any large amounts, just single skeins, mostly sock yarn. But I had bought a few sweaters’ worth of yarn during the year (mostly Cascade 220) and while I’d started a sweater for myself, I haven’t done much with it. I’ll probably rip it out for now. I’ve decided that I need to focus on some smaller projects and use up some of this beautiful yarn I’ve acquired. So no more “speculative” yarn purchases for a while!
I finished my little scarf on Friday night. I cast on 44 stitches on 4 mm needles. It’s very soft and drapey. I used up almost all of the yarn – I had a small little ball left. I love how it curls in on itself. It ended up being 9″ x 64″ (unblocked).
It made me laugh when I realized that the colours in the sock yarn match my crabby pants! I got those jammy pants on our trip. I’m crabby in the morning!
