I got home tonight to a very pleasant surprise…
What’s this? Its a pretty big box….
Its yarn (did you think it would be anything else?). Its all the yarn I need for the Brae Cardigan from Art of Fair Isle Knitting. I ordered it from Schoolhouse Press, and I must say – the colors are beautiful. 100% wool and it feels it – but I like the crunchiness of wool. I am so struggling now – I really want to just start this. I am getting bored with the Kimono shawl, and sure – Larry’s Na Craga is just sitting there…but I want to do Fair Isle! Maybe I should just start the ribbing…no, I really can’t. I swore I wouldn’t start this until I finished both the Kimono shawl and the Na Craga sweater.
You know, I really need to stop swearing things. It sucks! First the “I need to finish all current projects before starting new ones” and then the “I’m not buying yarn until Maryland Sheep and Wool” – both are just so stupid!
Isn’t this beautiful? Its BlackBunny Fiber Handpainted sock yarn. I’ve been looking at this ever since she posted it….I really want it. Stupid promise to myself (hey, does it matter if you only made a promise to yourself and you break it? Am I sounding like a complete addict?)
OK, I’m going to go put this wonderful yarn somewhere I can’t see it and work on my stupid Kimono shawl….sigh…..
