Caution…..Yarn Ahead

My stress level at work has not improved. A very lovely coworker experienced a sudden and sad loss in her family and thanks to the lack of fore planning by my less than stellar supervisor my work load tripled at an already busy time of the year.

And since I can’t drink wine or consume copious amounts of caffeine I drowned my feelings in pretty new yarn. Perhaps not the best for the size of my stash…but it was some pretty awesome self-care in my opinion.

I picked up some Western Sky Knits Aspen sock with nylon in the Fairy Dust colorway. And then I hit up some wish list shopping….The Lemonade Shop! The middle skein is some Mighty Sock in the Toxic Oreo color. And the final skein is Simple Sock in the Stormy Day colorway. I need more yarn like I need a hole in my head but these made me feel the pull of my knitting mojo again which has ebbed in the latter stages of my pregnancy.

Now I just need these beauties to tell me what they want to be! Happy Knitting!!

  1. love all those yarns! They are definitely good pick-me-up self-gifts. šŸ™‚

    I had one very similar to the stormy day – it was on a white sparkly base, not the gray. I held it with a wildly colorful rainbow variegated and knit my niece some leg warmers. The sparkly white toned down all the colors, but it all still popped. She loved them. I never got an FO shot, but you can see what I am talking about here – https://www.ravelry.com/projects/salpal1/ebls-leg-warmers

    I would definitely get that yarn again, I think it would make fun socks, or a great small shawl or scarf. Or, with a couple of skeins, a nice big lace shawl. The color repeats are so short that pooling isn’t a problem, and if the color does all pool, it is still not just one color, but a little rainbow pop.

  2. Great heading ! šŸ™‚
    The Stormy Day looks brilliant – most of it plain with colour only in part – and I’d give my back teeth to see how it knits up …
