I got a package in the mail this week. A truly wonderful package.
It’s high summer here. The temperature stays in the 100` range. It has been so hot that the power grid blew out in parts of downtown Tuesday morning. It was a good week for a surprise.
My secret buddy in the SP9 swap hosted at Knitty seems to have a knack for figuring out just what I want. This is what was in my package.
The pattern is for mitered square mittens and the yarn is Koigu, in the prettiest colorway! I’ve been wanting to learn mitered squares and this pattern is incredibly cool. It is now on my short list of projects to start as soon as I get the kids back to school. It was the perfect swap package!
It’s Thursday, which means I have new yarn going up for sale at Elliebelly at Hyena Cart today at noon, central time. I hope you’ll stop by for a peak and see if any of the new yarns and colorways appeal to you. Here is a sample of what you will find. "Citrus Head" is a sock yarn on a Bamboo/Merino/Nylon blend that is as wonderful for scarves and shawls as it is for socks. "Sun Egg" is a delicious silk yarn that knits up quickly at 4 stitches to the inch on size 7 needles and produces incredibly beautiful scarves in a simple fan and feather pattern. Please drop by and take a look!
