First the bad news. The knitting needle I’d bought for my Ocean Currents Rug broke! The tip just snapped off the cable while I was working with it. It’s been sent off to the manufacturer for replacement, but until I get a new one, there’s not going to be any rug progress.
To make up for it, I’ve had a fair bit of knitting good news. I have a couple of projects I want to complete in the next year or two that I didn’t have the yarn for, so I put in an order and got it the other day.
I got some Supersocke self-striping sock yarn in the Mali Color Golden Shades to use in a colorwork sock along with some black yarn I already had:
I also got some Cascade Heritage sock yarn in Como Blue for another colorwork sock with my black yarn:
All the pictures I’d seen of this yarn showed it as blue, but it’s a fairly green-leaning blue-green. The picture here is the best I could get, but it’s not green enough. I’m slightly disappointed it’s not the color I was envisioning, but it should work out okay.
I’ve been wanting some custom fit gloves out of a very fine yarn, so I got some Malabrigo Lace in the color Vaa, which is super soft:
And finally, I bought someFilatura Di Crosa Nirvana lace weight yarn in Dark Teal for a lace shawl I’ve been wanting to make:
As if that package wasn’t good enough news, I also finished the bed I’ve been working on for Lily for the last five and a half months. She likes it:
