I have two sleeves! Always good to have both arms covered. Now I have the front, and the hood. Almost there! I’m thinking one side of the front will be done this weekend, and the other front by the end of the week. Maybe.
A whole bag of Rowan’s All Seasons Cotton, shade 167 (discontinued if the ebay seller is to be believed). I bought it on Friday of last week, and it’s already here! All the way from England! I have a couple of ideas about what I’m going to do with it. (See item 3).
Do you think I have a problem with purple yarns? We have (left to right) – Cestari (from Maryland Sheep and Wool, but Stitch DC’s Georgetown store is now stocking all the colors! Only at the Georgetown store). The Cestari is probably going to be a Samus.
Then there’s Lion Cotton Ease. I only have two, and four skeins of Cotton Ease in Black, which would be just enough to make a Tricot (of course, then the four balls of black Cotton Ease couldn’t become a Tubey, and I’m left with some sleeves).
Under the Cotton Ease, we have Cotton Plus. It was going to be this one lacey hooded pullover, since I saw a good one in Cotton Plus. But then I saw another one which wasn’t so great looking. Will contemplate.
Under the Cotton Ease is a tiny skein of the Rowan All Season Cotton. I’m thinking of Janda. I’d have to go pick up more, but Stitch DC is having a sale this week – 40% Rowan Summer Yarns. Maybe pink for the sleeves?
The big ball is Cascade 220. In progress to being the Cabled Hoodie (above).
