Yarn was the last thing I needed to be buying but I’ve had a stressful couple of days. Nothing bad, but news I didn’t want to hear, though I knew it was probably coming . . and what better way to cheer myself up than order a bit of yarn! I had a store credit and a discount code from Eat, Sleep, Knit, so I figured now was as good a time as any to order some yarn.
I ordered Malabrigo Dos Tierras to make Nightshift. That’s a pattern I had seen, liked, walked away, went back and decided not to get. Then I saw one on Instagram that someone had made and I loved it so I bought the pattern, not sure what yarn I would use. Dos Tierras is on Power Boost (50%) at ESK this month so I chose that. The pattern calls for DK weight, though quite a few people are using Rios which is worsted.
I also ordered Dos Tierras in the color Plomo to make Glymur. I’m kinda liking poncho type things these days. I have a couple of them and they’ve been nice this winter.
Last, I ordered Drama by Claudia Handpainted Yarn to make a summer T-shirt or something similar to a T-shirt. There are several patterns that I want to make but I was thinking about Morning Sky.
I’m pretty happy with the projects I’ve finished so far this year and am excited about the things yet to make.
