Just a few weeks ago I had to sprint out to stop him from shoving a HUGE package the size of a king sized pillow into the mailbox. He was trying so hard to shove it in there that the mailbox had to be replanted. Turned out to be from Knit Picks. Several of the yarn labels were damaged, but nothing so bad that Fiber Protective Services needed notifying.
So today I was so happy when the whole operation worked correctly and THIS arrived:
I love these things. It is of course the New Lux Knitting Books from 1951.
Yup, They have yarn there. So off we go. That way if nothing hits I still have time to order some stuff online.
Now…think purple for me.
I am swatching for Grape Ape socks. I started playing with it last night while watching some Elizabeth I thing on PBS. All I have on hand is green Essential Sock Yarn from Knit Picks. So the swatch is green, but you can pretend, right?
Here’s the rough chart. I’ll improve in the next couple of days.
