How are you? Thank you so much for the support and good advices since my last post. I totally "recovered" now. Actually, things are going pretty well, as I have received my yarn today! Yay! I was away for 2 days, and when I came back, these beauties were waiting for me.
They are so pretty I might not be able to knit them for a while (do you have this problem too?) but at least, I have already planned to knit an Ishbel Shawl from this wonderful coral skein:
|Madelinetosh, Tosh Lace, Coral|
This gorgeous grey yarn has an incredible sheen and yardage, and I'm still wondering which pattern will be the one:
|Fyberspates, Scrumptious Lace, Slate|
The next one is slightly disappointing. I thought it would be more pink than red-orange, but I'm still happy to have another sock yarn to knit immediately. I also ordered something else, but this will stay secret as it is a birthday gift for a friend. Shhh! ;)
|Cascade, Heritage Paints, 9801|
I don't buy varigated yarn often, and I'm still wondering what sock pattern to use with this one. Maybe a pair of Monkey Socks? I'm so in love with Andi's Monkey Socks that I want another pair for myself.
I also bought a crochet hook, so I should be fine until I get home in September. Phew!
I was almost about to forget to mention the wonderful shop where I got my yarn dose: Laine et Tricot is a blessing for any knitter in France: very fast delivery, careful packing, lovely yarns, fair prices, oh, and not to mention the very valuable open in August! ;)
I have some winding to do....
Have a lovely day!
