Today I had to go to Trenton for a meeting in the morning. It was a nice way to start the week – I got to sleep in a bit, and I left the house around 8, so it was a nice leisurely morning (unlike most work mornings where I am flying out of the house at 6:15 a.m.). Had a bit of a drive there, but it was a nice pretty drive – past farms, fields….on a beautiful (although horribly hot) summer morning. Really a wonderful way to start my week….and what made it a little nicer was that I had to drive right by The Wooly Lamb.
Since they were open, and since I happened to be right there….I had to stop. OK, I planned it….but I needed this yarn:
Cascade 220 – for my master knitter swatches (I also got a pair of size 7 needles just for the swatches!). The instructions say to use a light color – and this white was just so pretty….I’m not sure how much yarn I’ll need – I started with 3 skeins – but I think getting more is easier since white won’t have different dye lots.
I also was looking for a nice cotton worsted weight….
This is Plymouth Jeannee (how could I resist with that name?) – worsted weight, cotton blend. I thought I’d make a tank for Cieara. I found the Lillian tank pattern and she likes it…and it just seems like a Cieara kind of thing. So once I finish my Ribby Shell (just about done the back!), I’ll start this. Pretty yarn, eh?
So I just have this week to go – and then we are off on vacation to Maine! I’m hoping to work summer hours this week so I can take a half day on Friday – lots of things to do like physical therapy, pedicure…lunch…knitting…maybe a nap….oh, right…and packing. I hope the rest of my week goes as nicely as this Monday did!
