It's another beautiful sunny day in So. CA! I was a little surprised the beautiful blue came thru
in the pic because it's a little overcast this a.m. Some would say it's hazy I guess. And it's suppose to be hot today, we may hit 80 today and expected to hit 90 tomorrow on Easter Sunday!
I don't know what's wrong with me, but I ended up with a duplicate issue of Knitscene
, so I am offering this issue to one of you. I'll be happy to send it to you. I was thinking of making you work for it, but I don't like that. I was thinking of asking you to tell me what you'd like to see on this blog, what would entice people to not just pass by but post a comment and say hello. So do that if you like, because I'd like to know,but really, anyone who emails me that they'd like the issue, I'll send it to the 7th
person who emails me. Why the 7th
? Because I like the number 7.
I received a special package in the mail yesterday! All the way from the Netherlands. It's my La Digitessa
sock kit from Yarnissima
! I came home half day yesterday with a horrible migraine so when the mail came and my kit was there, well it made me feel a little better. It was so exciting to open it! Marjan
does such a nice job of making her kits special. She sent some candy and packaged the pattern separately
. And the yarn....oh my Lord! It is so gorgeous!
See! It was hard for me to get an accurate pic of the color. I heard it described as dark cherries. My skein in cherries to deep black cherries, you know that gorgeous burgundy color, or wine. The colors are all descriptive with food of course! This is a very special Wollmeise
yarn that was hand dyed especially for this kit, and so we all got a slightly different version, but I'm thrilled with my yarn. I cannot wait to cast on. I am trying
to finish my current socks before I start this lovely pattern because it's quite involved. It doesn't look difficult so much as just involved.
Oh, before I forget, I wanted to let my Pay It Forward ladies, Molly, Penelope Anne and Jeannine know that I have not forgot you!! No, no, I will try to not make it to the end of my commitment and wait until 365 days, but I will get a package off to you. Just wanted to let you know I didn't forget you!
Happy Easter to all of you!
