Stash with moderation

My newest wool is from Boho Chic Fiber Co. It was my first time buying from this dyer. I was pleasantly surprised by the super fast shipping, nice packaging, cute note and coherent branding. Love supporting small business that have their act together!

Yarn: 75% SW Merino, 25% Nylon, 460 yards, Fingering weight

Possible patterns: High Plains Drifter or Graphic Kerchief

Fiber: Merino, Mohair and Silk Noils, 2 oz.

Enhancing the wool collection doesn't get old! As with everything, self control is key. Stash with moderation.

Sometimes it takes longer than expected

These socks should have debuted here a couple of weeks ago. I took my time finishing them. Not because of "technical issues" but due to "life issues". It isn't easy to be present, mindful and resourceful when a loved one is under the clouds.  It required appearing to be stronger and putting knitting aside.

Eventually things move forward and one finishes some socks, wash and lay them to dry in the most awkward fashion! See the wrinkles?

 I love my socks, wrinkles included. Yarns & pattern can be found at my project page: here

I also finished plying the last four ounces of a deep stash Merino fiber. The three ply yarn is super soft and spongy. I suffered a "laziness attack" that prevented me to count the yardage. My not at all expert assessment says that I have enough for a shawl.

More on goals...

Something very strange is happening...I've been making progress on my goals. Don't know how long this will last, but so far so good!

2015 woolly goals
  • finish three pair of socks: finished pair one; pair two in progress
  • cast off two sweaters: paired stashed yarn with pattern
  • start spinning for a sweater: two bobbins done; a gazillion more to come

Today is a perfect day to be outside. We already been about & around town. I've even discovered a new Jenny's Splendid Ice Cream location and a mini garden. Gotta love it! 

Enjoy the weekend, walk, laugh, knit...see you next time!
