This weekend was all about the right yarn.
Above: Manos del uruguay on big needles for a cowl.
This is very naughty yarn. It is CasBah by handmaiden.
It has a little bit of Cashmere in it...
When I got to Mosaic Yarn Studio 15 minutes before their doors closed on a Sunday,
this yarn was calling my name.
Thank God I had the ladies wind it.
It took them a half an hour due to a snag.
George and Linda worked like a team and wound this beautiful yarn into a behaving skein.
I came home and cast on anew...
I'm knitting a beautiful shawl...
more on that later
This yarn, the Souza, was wound uneventfully by me.
Then I began to knit with it and I realized, this is meant to be socks.
The way to colors seem to want to stripe, it just seems wrong, plain old wrong, to have it become anything but socks....
So it waits...
Finally, Fixie and Sprocket are nursing quietly here.
All of the kittens have been taught by Lucy Lou, to eat and use the litter box. Still, they need to nurse a bit and she obliges them.
Spinner and Bonk, the black kitties, are just as adorable.
All 4 of them have a wind up key. They bounce, literally, bounce around the room hysterically.
Ahh kittens, they are a joy!
What yarn are you knitting with today?
