And now for something completely different


Sorry, I lied. I got nothing new to show you. Nothing new to tell. Still the same old, same old tale of a crazy woman and her alarmingly growing obsession with yarn.

It’s March, springtime is in the air. My son’s birthday is happening next week. St. Patrick’s Day is near. When will I ever find a decent Irishman to kiss on St. Paddy’s Day? Shamrock Shakes will be coming around. And green colourways a-plenty. Although these yarns are from February club shipments. Maybe they realized people would receive them in March, hence the colourway. Clever women.

I took a peek at the Yarntini shipment already so I knew it was green. I think this is the first green colourway I ever had from Jessie. Apart from the Mint Chocolatini from last year’s club, but it had brown stripes and it was a pale green so it doesn’t count.

I am fairly new to the world of Plucky and while I love Sarah’s red colourways, I think she should dye more green colourways from now on. Look at how utterly beautiful these skeins are! Yarntini on the left and Plucky centre and right.

Yarntini’s colour is called Dirty Martini. I have to check out this month’s drink recipe, it has to be awesome. I haven’t knit with any of her yarn yet but if I did I think I would make a really nice pair of socks, with a lot of texture, maybe cables to bring out the rich semi-solid colours.

Sarah’s colourway is called Father Goose. Sadly I am not familiar with this classic film, but the yarn is just too die for. Superwash Fingering Merino. Two skeins of it! Socks or shawl?

And on a related matter, here’s a sneak peak into something I have in the works. More to come soon.
