I Love Lorna's Laces
I bought some Lorna's Laces at my little yarn crawl with Al last week too. I have never been disappointed with Lorna's Laces sock yarn. Never. I haven't knit anything with this amazing yarn in a few years....so it was time to buy some. I think the company is based in Chicago too. No matter, I"d love it no matter where it was from. The browny, grey blues are the perfect sock color for me for now.
I am a seasonal color knitter. I don't knit with springy colors or summery colors in the winter. Do you? I like to change up my colors with the months. I just finished a pair of socks in pinks and greens and whites and it felt all wrong. I felt like I was knitting with summer flowers in the crisp of fall. Wrong wrong wrong.
It is the season of browns and oranges, flame reds and wet yellows. Today is dark and wet and grey. Days like today, I thought on my way to the shelter this morning, I'd rather it stay dark all day and hide its dreary face. Alaska-like.......I think I'd do fine there!
