There were several additions this week but almost everything already has a purpose.
First, there was Wollmeise from last week’s update. Left to right, 2 skeins of each: Sonne, Paul, Red Hot Chili. Just look at those colors!
Next is 7 skeins of Alpaca. This yarn is a bit thicker than the last yarn I had from my friend. I’m thinking this one is going to swatch up to being more of a DK than sport weight yarn so I may change my mind about it’s purpose. This yarn feels so good!
These three skeins are Madelinetosh A.S.A.P., which is a super bulky weight yarn and I figured Nicole and I will make hats from it, to get her used to knitting in the round using circular needles, but by the time I get there, she’s probably going to have finished a pair of socks so she may not even need my help.
The four skeins below are Mrs. Crosby’s Carpet Bag. On the left are Smokey Granite and Red King Radish. On the left are Midnight Aubergine (which is truly purple) and Golden Butter. Nicole and I are going to make us each a Dual Tone Cowl. Red King Radish/Smokey Granite for me and Midnight Aubergine/Golden Butter for her.
And last . . Three Irish Girls Springvale DK in Cian. I have loved the color since I first saw it and every time I would start to buy it, I would think “you look horrible in yellow” but the color makes me happy so I decided to just get it! I’m going to use it for a Grandpa Cardigan.
