T minus 2
When in doubt, post yarn.
Yarn. Pretty Pretty Yarn.
My first shipment from Sundara’s Seasons club. The colorway is Roasted Persimmon over Green Papaya and the crappy light (I tried, I really did, but I spend almost all the daylight hours in an office building, or en route to/from said office building) does not do this yarn justice. It is much less pink and much more red than the picture indicates.
The deep rich reds with the faint nips of green/yellow peeping through actually remind me of the gorgeous autumn foliage in New England that’s happening about now, and is making me simultaneously homesick, and wanting to carry the yarn everywhere with me.
I love it so much that I think I need to veer from my narrow Stockinette or Jaywalker sock policy for this yarn. Right now the Twisted Tweed pattern is leading the pack, however, I am open to suggestions…
Rhinebeck is only 2 days away. I have so much to do between now and then that it hardly seems like just 2 days, but I suppose that staying busy will make the time fly. (It has been. I can’t believe it’s Wednesday already?!)
For some reason, comments are being sent to my old Yahoo email account. I’m still trying to figure out how to fix this… the inefficiencies of moving are killing me (sigh).
No, I’m not talking just about moving the blog. Tonight I have about 8 storage bins that need to be sorted through before Eric makes the trip to his parents this weekend to clear out things we don’t immediately need from our new apartment. Yes, it’s for a really really good reason – we need a place to put all the awesome baby stuff – but it’s amazing how much TIME and ENERGY is expended (months and months worth) every time you move.
And we’ve moved 4 times in the past 4 years. Consider my wanderlust (completely and one hundred percent) satiated.
