The sun just came out after a couple of days of clouds and rain. It’s a gorgeous Fall morning and 72°, no breeze to speak of. And humid, of course. We’ve got heavy storms forecast for later today into tomorrow. Again, a good time to stay home and knit.
I will need to make a trip into town to pick up our mail at the post office. I have two packages waiting on me and one of them contains yarn. I know. I don’t need more yarn, but I doubt that my favorite Indie dyer is going to be doing any dyeing soon. I’ve been keeping an eye on her online shop and she hasn’t added to it that I can tell so I decided to order four skeins of her fingering yarn still in stock to add to my stash just in case she is through with stocking her shop. She’s a little younger than I am but she has health concerns and it’s difficult for her being on her feet for long periods of time.
I’ve nearly finished the ribbing on the hat. Started over with the dyed yarn for the body of the hat and I’ll use the natural white for the pattern. I didn’t get it reskeined and soaked last night but I’m going to do that this morning when I’m through writing this post. This is another of Jo Dee’s yarns from Fishknit’s Yarns. The colorway is ‘10,000 Leagues’ on her Isabel base, 80/20 Merino/Silk. The natural yarn is 80/20 Merino/Nylon and I’m hoping it comes out like a snowflake pattern on the darker yarn.
