I got all my beautiful wool yarn yesterday! I am so excited! I made my 4 year old pet it with me.
Then I asked her if it was pathetic that I was THAT excited about yarn. She assured me, in her most solemn voice, that it was.
I have BEAUTIFUL colors to knit with now. I am making FIVE bags...and each one is different. And because I chose a solid color yarn (instead of noro kureyon), I get to play with the fabric a little, too.
For my sister in law...a rich brown bag (maple syrup) with two wide rust red stripes and a small avocado strip in the middle.
For my other sister in law...a smoky gray bag with thin navy and orchid stripes throughout.
For my brother's new wife...an orchid colored bag on bottom, with a peacock blue on top.
For my sister...a black bag with one thick gray band.
For my niece...a mini navy bag with avocado and orchid stripes.
I have to finish the last few blocks on the log cabin afghan I am making for my mother in law, and then I can get started on these puppies! I left all the yarn sitting out on my work table, just so I can keep looking at it. My dh asked me last night if I was going to put it away, and then laughed at me because I gave him a look like he was from outer space!
Put it away? He's lucky I am not draping myself in it and wearing it to bed!!!!!!
