Obviously, in terms of blogging, Knit a Year has gotten away from me. Oh, fear not—I have been faithfully knitting with a different yarn each day. But when it comes to blogging about it, well, I stink.
Yet I’m fairly obsessed with documenting each day and each new yarn. Thus, this listing. Okay, somewhat boring, yet think of it as a mantra for knitting. Ommmmm.
Day 13: I love Foxfire yarn, and this gorgeous aqua hand dyed Cormo/silk sport weight is de-lovely. I was in a foxy mood.
Day 15: Artfibers’ golden tussah silk. Yes, I was in a silky, slithery mood. Yes, it’s gorgeous fiber.
Day 16: Romney Ridge Farm—artisanal yarn from Maine. Wool, mohair, angora. A longing for the Pine Tree State prompted this day.
Day 17: Plymouth yarn’s luscious Baby Alpaca Grande. I felt pretty grand myself that night.
Day 18: Lisa Souza’s remarkable Flying Fish, perhaps my fave all-time yarn.
Day 19: Mirasol yarns merino/alpaca/silk. Just a yummy yarn that makes me feel good. It’s also good for the people of Peru it supports. Beginning a color poem.
Day 23: Artfibers’ Bistro cotton and nylon, in their Spring Yarntasting Sampler. I love this. It makes me smile.
Day 26: Dream in Color’s Classy (worsted). My Mother Earthy feelings sometimes come to the fore.
Whew! Well, that’s it for now.
