For irisheyes lynn
Here's the Schaefer Anne yarn that Allison gave me for Christmas. I just love the colors. I also love that it is washable wool. This First sock is at the round toe stage. I was trying to tell Lynn that it was multi reds and greens but that just sounded like Christmas. So here's the yarn, a little out of focus, but the truest color without a flash.
The tangle also visible is a heartbreak. Thankfully there is enough yarn wound to make a full pair. I wanted to cry as the tangle got to that beyond hope part. My lesson: I will always have the yarn shop wind my yarn. Breaks my heart that she spent her money as a poor college student on this incredible yarn and I wasted some of it. My friend Diane comforted me by saying some yarn cannot be wound without tangling. Isn't that a dear thing to say to someone?
I'm interrupting the start of the second sock to start a baby gift that needs to be finished by Sunday. I have some new pony point pearls to work with, so I'm eager to start.
Al doesn't like pony points for zeros and ones, and doesnt like woodens either. She says she is rough on them. Does any one have metals that small that likes them?
I just heard a good testimonial for square needles for those with sore wrists....how nice that we are given healthy choices for the new year. :)
