The yarn diet has been going great til last week when I decided . . those folks at Loopy Ewe need to eat too! They’ve probably been missing me terribly. They didn’t say that or anything similar but I’m quite sure that Sheri and the elves at The Loopy Ewe arrived each morning, sat at their desks and waited patiently for my order to arrive. Yep, they were missing me. I had not ordered anything since mid-March. That was a record for me.
Christmas is coming . . sooner than we think. Someone on my list loves red so I ordered this:
This is Malabrigo Silky Merino in Ravely Red. Since finishing the Drop Stitch Scarf, I’ve wanted to make another one and will do so using this yarn.
Someone on my Christmas list loves orange and this yarn will be used to make socks and a scarf for her.
This is Lorna’s Laces, 80% superwash merino/20% nylon and though it’s a fine yarn and takes forever to knit, socks made from this yarn are some of my favorites.
As much as I dislike winding the yarn into balls, first thing this morning I did it . . all 5 skeins.
As soon as I finish the current project, I’ll start working on one of these. The orange or the red?? I’m not sure but either of these will be fun projects and when they’re done, that will be two Christmas gifts finished! Maybe I’ll set a goal to have this done by the end of June . . or maybe the end of July . . or maybe by December 24! 🙂
