As I have very recently finished my two giant papers (30 pages I wrote! Yes I am bragging a little!) I have had more time to focus on packing and sorting, since Hazel still goes to her sitter everyday. Yesterday I got sorted on one of the most important parts of any big trip – the knitting. Yes, the knitting. I can't be driving 20 hours, then waiting a week for our stuff to meet us in Bama, without knowing how I'm going to keep these hands busy!! :D
Are you ready for some sock yarn porn? I am! These are the new sock yarns I bought recently from Knit Picks
, which just arrived yesterday and deserved their own pictures!
Lovely, right? The blue is for my feet! Any knitter will tell you that knitting for yourself happens rarely, and when I saw this yarn I just knew that I needed it on my feet every night for the rest of my days. The green and brown will become socks for two lucky recipients; the brown most likely for Amos, and the green as a Christmas gift for some lucky duck.
This gorgeous yarn was an awesome surprise from my friend Clara last night at knitting!
This is going to be a beautiful and fun knit for Hazel. I'm not even sure what it will be, yet. Maybe tights, with feet and all, or maybe a little wrap/sweater deal. Whatever I make it is going to be super fun to knit with a yarn called Cartoon!
