Would you look at that pile of luscious cormo yarn dyed up by my dyemaster sister! I bought this load of cormo in Maryland and my sister dyed up the natural colored yarn into this lovely cinnamony color. Of course she first dyed it "don’t shoot me in the forest hunter orange", but we don’t mention that. Even better she delivered it to me in person last night!
Yup, it’s visiting time at the house so how long do we wait to hit Art Fibers? Hmm, Claudia can apparently make it about 36 hours without an Art Fibers fix, so we’ll be there on Friday hanging out and fondling the goods.
I’m still waiting for my ONE ball of Phildar yarn to complete my gray cardigan sweater. I ordered two Phildar magazines to make the flat rate of shipping seem more reasonable. Of course I check the Phildar site this a.m. and they’ve got a new magazine out! Why am I a day late and a Euro short here people. There are quite a few cute things in the Tendance Hiver 2005/2006 edition. My personal fave is this knitted shearlingesque jacket. Love it! I have no need of a shearling jacket in my neck of California, but how cute is this knitted version! I may have to make this one ASAP! Even better, this pattern is at present a free pattern on the Phildar site, so go and download it before they change it! Should we start a shearling-along?
