I finished last week’s pebble and was ready to cast on for some booties – but then I couldn’t find the pattern. So. I cast on for another pebble. I had it coming anyway, right?
I’m so glad I got to use all the colours; all that’s left of my little ball of Noro yarn is a bit of green that might finally turn into some part of those booties now that the needles are free.
Sorry for the stripey overload. I love the colours! (And I couldn’t decide on photos. There you go.)
The colourful yarn is Noro Yuzen, the other Sirdar Balmoral in Pheasant.
I still have to find the right buttons. First I have to find a new favourite button shop.
I do miss my old button lady.
Alright then, one more stripey picture!
I’m about two thirds into Birdsong and can’t wait to read what happens next.
Also, I ordered some yarn for that cardigan I was going to knit for myself a while back. That was Cascade Eco+ in Pacific. When it arrived, it was very turquoise. I thought about it for a while and then decided it was too bright for me so I sent it back in exchange for this one, Lake Chelan Heather (even prettier name as well), and I love this colourway.
But now it has gotten so very warm and wonderful.
I knit throughout the year and am not really put off by hot weather, but if I knit woollies then they have to be small. Lugging around a big adult-size project doesn’t sit so well with me right now, so I’ll just enjoy looking at the yarn until the next rainy day.
