But, I have new yarn to keep me company. Too bad I just can't set all the work, and laundry, etc, etc, aside and curl up and knit. Rain and knitting just go together. But, no. People get testy when there are no groceries. They get a little grumpy when all that's left is my non-fat milk. I get comments about having to drink the "blue milk" - or as they call it, "shooting the rapids." My son made the comment that all that was left in the fridge for lunchmeat was "farty little bags of crapity." Well, that's descriptive. Guess I gotta to to the store.
I also used the last of the coffee this morning... now, that's where I'll get testy in the morning, if there's no coffee. All I want is a half a cup... but I really WANT my half a cup.
Come on family.... it's not all about you... it's all about me, and my knitting. Hmmph... they're not buying it.
So, for your (MY) enjoyment.... some KnitPicks Ambrosia in Mulled Wine, for my Clementine Shawlette. I know I'm always saying "this stuff is the softest" about whatever I seem to be knitting with at the time... but, really.... baby alpaca and cashmere - this really IS the softest. I'll be buying this again, and again.
The blue is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, for the Cocktail Capelet, also out of the newest IK. Cashmerino....mmmmm. A very close second for softest yarn.
I'll set it out where I can see it, and feel it.... while I walk by with another load of laundry :o(
