Just got home from work, and I have thiiiiiiiis much ironing to do
Yay! And no sooner did I settle into the couch, turn on the TV, and open the magazine than my doorbell rang and my favorite UPS guy had my Smiley’s order!
The score: 6 Rowan Purelife in Black Tea, 4 Filatura Lanarota Fashion Toes in color 5 (a deep burgundy/purpley color), 8 Filatura Lanarota Rich Wool in color 155 (a beige a bit darker than the Purelife), and 7 Filatura Lanarota Wool Sprinkles in color 513 (a purple tweed)
All yarns were purchased with patterns in mind (and on a written list) most of which are in past issues of Interweave. How apropos that they have arrived on the same day as the new issue! Pictures and patterns to follow tomorrow.
On another note not too much progress on my own vest design but I am thrilled to have finally cast on, the yarn has been in the back of my stash cabinet for years, and it is so yummy I wanted juuuuuust the right pattern for it. I am knitting it in the round from the bottom up, and so far I think I should have cast on with a size or two smaller, oh well…
