"I just stopped by Charlotte Yarn. They'd gotten a new shipment in. Let me just say that I know what you're going to be spending all your store credit on for a while."What was I to do but immediately call the shop and find out what she was talking about? It was Interlacements Tiny Toes. Sock Yarn. As close to Koigu and Cherry Tree Hill as I'm gonna get at the shop. It was as if the heavens parted and a chorus of angels started to sing. Of course, right after work I rushed over to the shop and picked up 2 colorways. This one is Color #203 "Submarine" Lemme tell ya, this stuff is so nice and soft. It's like the perfect balance of CTH and Koigu. Sproingy like Koigu, Soft like CTH. This one is Color#206 "Las Vegas Brights" It reminds me of Mork's suspenders on Mork & Mindy. Nanu Nanu. I couldn't resist some shots with the sea turtle sculpture on my desk. Yummy! I can't wait to work with it. But, I still have Christmas knitting to do. I tried in vain to finish up the Swallowtail Lace shawl in time for Lacevember but I still have 15 rows and the bindoff to do. You'll see FO shots of it next week. *le sigh* Who was it that started the rumor that Lacevember lasted 2 months? I blame them for my failure. I thought I was good to go. Alas and alack.
