Today's pr0n is brought to you by Blue Moon Fiber Arts and Lisa Souza. But you gotta say that "Leeeesa Soooozaaaaah!" Like the ladies from Lime 'n Violet say it. Ripple thinks I'm crazy because I'll just randomly look at him and say, "Leeeesa Soooozaaaaah!" Heh. ANYWAY. The wonderful Trillian42 sent me a lil something from Stitches East. She saw it and thought of me immediately. I introduced her to the Lime 'n Violet podcast a little while ago. You see, she wasn't a podcast listener but I told her she had to listen to Lime and Violet because they are freakin' hilarious. Y'all should listen to them. Seriously. What a hoot! So, on with the pr0n. Lime 'n Violet Silk Merino Top! Yup. She's making me work for it. Fortunately, I just bought a top whorl spindle and had a refresher course on Tuesday night from Meta Thompson at our guild meeting. (This refresher consisted of me, watching her like a stalker.) But I think I got it. I'll be playing with the Swaledale Roving that Spin sent me this weekend, we'll see how I do. Next up, some Socks that Rock straight from Rhinebeck! The awesome Rosi. G sent this to me along with some KP Classic Circs that she swapped me for some pattern row counters. This is the "Dreidel" colorway in STR Medium Weight. Wow. This stuff is gorgeous. Though my luck with sock knitting lately is anything but stellar (more on that this weekend) this yarn really gets me thinking. What pattern does it want to be? What size needles does it want to be knit on? Inquiring minds want to know. Any suggestions?
