I am sad because it was a pretty good summer. We only had about 2 weeks of intense heat and the rest of the summer wasn’t too bad except for all the rain we had in August.
I did more deep stash diving and picked out some Vesper Sock yarn that I had in the Witchy Woman color. I figured that I would make this for Halloween. I am using a size 1 needle and a basic sock pattern. I’m ready to start the heel flap.
I did add to my stash. I got some striped yarn from Fireweed Dyeworks (AlaskanNancy) on etsy. This color is called Russian Rainbow. I love it and want to get more.
I was also able to get Color Addiction from Lollipop Yarn on her last update. I still want to get Life is Beautiful. Maybe next time.
I also got my shipment from Desert Vista Dyeworks. The colors are Tiki Bar and Neon Halloween. I love this yarn.
I finally realized why I love self striping yarn. Variegated yarn is great, but I hate pooling. With self striping yarn, you don’t get pooling. I also love the color changes. It makes knitting the sock go faster. You don’t have to just do a basic sock pattern with self striping yarn. There are patterns out there where patterns do look great with the yarn.
I still need to destash some yarn and I think that the next time I destash, I will be looking at getting rid of variegated yarn that is hand dyed. I will still keep some of it, but I plan to destash quite a bit.
I am close to finishing the Song of the Sea Cowl, so I guess I will get to my knitting.
