I stocked up on a ton of yarn from Looped Yarnworks this weekend. I’ve got everything I need to pump out a couple of birthday presents, and got some goodies to get a jump on Christmas knitting. Spring Break should be productive!
First up, Madelinetosh Pashmina in Steam Gage. This sport weight literally sang to me from the bin. I can’t get over how gorgeous the colors are.
I also snagged the Pashmina in Pop Rocks. I’m thinking this is going to turn into a spring cowl, perfect to toss over a gray top.
I’m trying Koigu’s gorgeous hand-painted fingering sock yarn for the first time, too. I just cast on a project, and I’m liking the way it’s knitting up.
This Hazel Knits Lively DK in Coveralls is going to turn into G’s Christmas Hat, as per her request.
And the Royal Blue Shepherd’s Wool is turning into her birthday sweater.
Finally, I grabbed this skein of Wandering Wool in Rock Creek from a local dyer. Joelle Burbank dyes exclusively for the shop, and I’m thinking this is just the color for my step-daughter for Christmas.
So, the basket is bulging, and I’m excited to have lots of time over Spring Break to knock out a lot of gift knitting! I’m still working on Fabelhaven – should finish it up this week!
