Knitting stuff and going on and on.

Happy, happy, joy, joy ...

I came home from choir tonight and look what the Mr. brought back from the mail box! From my Secret Pal 9 pal, so happy, I love presents! Well, who doesn't really?

Sock yarn. Pretty pretty sock yarn from Perchance to Knit. It's called ChaCha and it is fabulous. 100% Superwash Kona Merino Yarn approximately 500-525yds.

The coolest thing, look at it with the jacket the Mr. got me for winter. There is even a pretty little stitch marker to go with it (click on the picture for a better view of it). I will make some simple socks with it and hope I have enough left over for a lacey little scarf to go with my jacket. Thank you, Secret Pal this is awesome.

All this was the perfect and happy distraction from a blog entry about another two inches on the scarf. I started a square too, but I'm waiting to see if it is going to turn out all right before I post it.

Katy, I still have 3 rooms and two items of paper covered furniture. I hope your marathon of reorganization is going better than mine.


  • Oh, hooray, it finally got there! You weren't kidding about that time-suck at the border crossing, were you? :)

  • Yay - fun mail! And such a perfect match for your jacket. And two inches of progress on your scarf is great. I've done NOTHING for two weeks so any sort of progess impresses me ;)

  • Dorothy, I went to the yarn store last night to show off some yarn I had bought from Knitpicks (say alpaca and cashmere with me) and ended up buying your orange-grenadine dyed yarn to make heavy socks for Richard's grandaughter. You are not helping me control my yarn stash you know. It's knitting up beautifully..the colours are awesome!

  • What a great parcel! I love how the yarn goes so very well with the coat - you'll definitely need to knit yourself a fun little accessory! :0)
