I have no business buying yarn. I’ve been knitting on my scarf at such a pace that it will be a minor miracle if I can wear it when the weather turns less than Africa hot.
But did I buy yarn? Well yes I did. Here it is laying in the 80 degree, no cloud in the sky, sunshine. Pure wool, you betcha. Only three skeins? Don’t be silly! I’ve got a sweater’s worth.
What sweater is planned for this lovely stuff? Grettir! Isn’t it gorgeous? I’ve been wanting a fair isle type project but just don’t have the patience for tiny yarn right now. This Shelter yarn is super nice. Granted I’ve not worked it yet, but petting it has been super. My colorway is the gray one shown on the man sweater. Simple and classic.
Want to see what I did with a bunch of apricots and cherries that came my way via the asian greengrocer? Are you guessing jam? Pysch! It’s an apricot tart. The recipe is here and is wonderful. The tart dough is flaky, innovative and easy and you don’t need a rolling pin so try it! You’ll thank me.
