Lotsa yarn

I took Friday off from work, planning to use the day to run some errands, clean the house and knit. My order at Knit picks for the 21 balls of Swish I ordered had been shipped over a week before and the tracking system said it would probably be delivered on Friday. It was! The package was practically vacuum-packed and felt like an over-stuffed throw pillow. It was heavy. And dense. I pried it open, too excited to find scissors, and the bag burped out 21 balls of yummy soft, colorful yarn....

I ordered at least 1 of almost every color they stocked. It is VERY SOFT. So far, I've got 9 hats in mind. With Christmas less than 4 months aways, that's about 2.25 hats per month. 1.125 hats per week!

In other knitting news, I finished Ms. Marigold over the weekend. She is currently blocking - I'll have a FO report this week. I enjoyed the long weekend, hope everyone else did too!


  1. that yarn looks so, so joyful! must have been a great package to open up. look forward to seeing ms. marigold.

  2. Wow, I just placed my first order with knitpicks and can't wait to get it.

    But if my math is right, then it isn't 1.125 hats a week, it's just over half a hat a week, no problem, right?
