More Yarn

Silk!

It just arrived from Elann. Lovely, isn’t it? I’ve never worked with silk before — I’m looking forward to this! The colours are Grape Tweed, Blue Slate, and Thundercloud. I think I’m going to use one colour to make this:

It’s the Pacific Grove Pullover from Just One More Row. I don’t know what I’ll do with the rest of it, but I couldn’t resist the colours and the price. I’m sure I’ll find something!

I finished the second Esprit sock, and wore them yesterday evening, to soothe my poor little toe. Which is, by the way, getting much better — those clever doctors and their effective antibiotics! I think it will all be cleared up by tomorrow, though of course I’ll be taking pills until next week. I even got through yesterday’s lecture without too much discomfort, though I only filled two of the three hours, because I didn’t want to make things worse by standing too long (the students didn’t seem too devastated to be done with class an hour early in the last week of term!).

I’ve also reached the armhole on the front of Mark’s sweater, so the end is in sight… then one more sleeve and the finishing, and I’ll finally be done!

That’s all for now — have a great day.

Update — it looks like it’s a good thing I pounced on the silk when I did (June 8, I think) because all but three colours of the variegated yarn are now sold out!

OOOOOOHHH!!!! YOU’RE the one whole “stole” all the Turino silk from us slower folks. LOL I love the grape tweed. I managed to score one skein of the curry tweed to swatch. It looks very much like Estelle Tussah silk, and I’m curious to know if they are both the same. They knit at the same gauge, have the same colors available. I’ll look into it. And it’s only $5.95 at Ram Wools.
