Hello fiber enthusiasts…. It’s MONDAY!
If your like me, then Monday comes WaY tOo QUICKLY, and then leaves just as quickly as it came. I tend to stay fairly busy on Mondays, more so then one would ever hope. Mondays are my class prep days, school days for all three little’s, podcast prep, and catch up on all the things.
This Monday, its raining, and with rain comes my need to sit by a fire with a cuppa tea/coffee in hand and watch podcasts while I knit all day long- this is not a productive way to go about my Monday.
But today, I decided I didn’t care, and spent my morning coffee in hand, my cute pink sock and a new to me podcast I have been binge watching since Friday- The Junkyarn Podcast
I am hooked! Kemper is sweet and funny and quirky, and loves to knit socks. What more could a fiber addict ask for in a podcast. Psh- DUH! Nothing. SO if you haven’t seen her podcast yet, click on the link, and check her out. You wont regret it.
Remember yesterday when I posted about the yarn I received in the mail from Dana of Unwind Yarn Company? Well, I only showed you part of my haul.. wanna see the other part? sure you do!
This. I needed these because, just YES! They sing to my heart. I don’t know exactly what it is about these mauve flecks, or mauve yarn in general right now, but, YES PLEASE!
I already know what I’m going to do with them- in fact, the minute I saw this pattern I knew exactly the dying technique I wanted to use, and then I saw these in the shop. They were perfect and obviously jumped into my cart before I could even blink. My fingers reacted faster then my brain because, here they are.
Obviously, my brain would have been more logical and asked “does one need more sock yarn in their stash when they have well over 200 skeins?” But my heart says “Ha! Why yes, yes one does.” Stupid question.
So here we are.
I am going to knit the Roads of Corsica Shawl by Gabrielle Vezina.
Seriously it’s amazing. SO… my plan is to cast this beauty on January 1st. I will be hosting a KAL in the RAVELRY GROUP for this pattern and It will run the month of January. The only rules are, you have to be a member of the group and you have to start and finish it in the month of January.
The prize will be a gifted pattern of your choice. WOOOHOOOO!
On that note—- I hope you all have a fun and fiber filled Monday,
