My husband commented that is wasn't really accurate for me to title posts What the Mailman Brought. He pointed out truthfully what happens is I order and pay for the yarn, the mailman only delivers it, it's not like the mailman is bringing me presents or something. So, I thought he might like this much more accurate post title instead. Although, when I showed it to him, he didn't even crack a smile! Men! I ordered most of this from Kpixie except the book and the latest Knitscene which I ordered from Knitty-Noddy.
Lanaknits Allhemp3 in Deep Sea for a Lacy Little Top.
Blue Sky Alpaca Silk in blue. This will become a Flower Basket Shawl.
Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in Manzanita for the Petticoat Socks in Weekend Knitting. I love the color of this yarn, my eyes just drink it up.
Claudia's Handpainted in Chocolate Cherries. I am so happy to have this yarn! This is the first yarn I've stared at, drooled over, dreamed about, deeply coveted, lusted over, hunted down, ect. I suppose that one day this will become socks, but for now it's a trophy in my knitting collection!
Patterns and one more of the Karabella Vintage Cotton to join the rest hanging out in my stash. These will have to marinate for a little while, but I do have plans for it. The blue will become Vintage Cotton Lace Tank you see here, and the rest will become a Stripes Go Round Tee from Interweave Knits Summer 2004.
And last of all, Knitting on the Road and both the Knitscenes. I decided to get the book because if I am going to collect sock yarn I should probably plan on making it into socks one day :-) The Knitscenes are not quite what I was expecting, those Interweave previews can really mislead me. They have some cute ideas in there and I will probably knit some of the little sweaters out of the newest one. Must lengthen though, these patterns were not written with mothers of three in mind!
