It’s arrived, so I now have to claim it. So, here is the purchase that didn’t want to be counted.
This stuff is seriously breaking my addiction to Debbie Bliss Cashmerino! At half the price and the same yardage, it’s winning. If only the color selection was more the Debbie Bliss stuff I would be even happier. But, considering I haven’t seen all the colors in real life, I shouldn’t make that assumption. I know the photo above makes it look like the yarn to the right is light blue, but in reality it looks lilac. Which I would almost assume they sent me the lilac instead of the Ice Blue, but the label says it is Ice Blue.
I was hoping to get 4 yarns I can use in the blanket I want to make for my next great nephew. I wanted to use the brown, at the top of the photo, and the cream to create two of the panels, and the navy, middle at bottom, and light blue to make the other panels. But alas, this scheme won’t work. So, I will consider another baby blanket or look for yarn while I am out in San Francisco.
I also got two more cables to use with the new needle tips I got from Webs. I love these needles! So smooth and so pretty. Just wish the needle tips had been in stock. But they are backordered, so I will wait. And just use the nasty bamboos while I wait.
In One A Day news I have been making great progress on the Shadow Shawl. I could almost have it done before I leave this weekend. But I am not sure how much knitting time I will get as I prepare for our trip. I am stalled on the Loki II until I get more yarn on Wednesday, but then, I doubt I will have time to steek and start the button bands. Oh well, this trip is just messing us up all over! Scheduling conflicts, PSAT test to be taken in San Fran, and a camping trip the minute we get back. I am tired just thinking about it! Time to relax and take it one moment at a time.
Hope your week is going well and that you are finding time to do something you enjoy each day! Hope over to Gingerbread Girl’s blog to see who else is keeping up with their One A Day.
