So there’s this thing where I have an idea, then I talk to some of my very favorite yarn makers, then they send me yarn, then I play with it. I believe technically it’s called ‘my job,’ but really it feels like way too much fun to be a job.
Two of the latest yarns to arrive (they’re for next year’s book) are from Blue Moon Fiber Arts.
The first is Yaksi Fingering in Poupon (tell me I’m not the only one to be amused by yak…that’s just nifty).
And the next is Socks that Rock Mediumweight in A Hazy Shade of Blue (love STR because it’s twisted tightly enough to make for really really sturdy socks).
Both are delightful, and both might already have found themselves coerced into swatches.
