Was all ready to go with the first of a two part post on, wait for it, ziplock bags and the proper use thereof for WIPs and in the stash. But then the postperson had to go and ruin my plans by delivering this to me yesterday.
Oooooh, what could it be, what could it be? (Well, clearly it’s yarn – the customs label says so, but what yarn? What colour? What a teasing sample that is attached to the outside…) And so prettily wrapped, I almost didn’t want to open it.Look at this – how good is this yarn – two skeins (TWO!!) of lovely lovely red sock yarn. But not just any red:Yes, “Rosenrot” translates to RoseRed! RoseRed sock yarn – how good is that!!! Bought for me as a present by the lovely Michele. How good and kind she is (and a very good knitter and dyer of cool indigo dyed yarn, plus has very interesting and thought-provoking posts about clothes, which of course I love!). I feel I am the luckiest knitblogger in the world! The yarn is from here – I’ve already had a peek – to find that I can get RoseRed yarn in laceweight and worsted as well – I may have to purchase some in all the yarns she offers!! And in the meantime, dream about the pattern possibilities for my RoseRed sock yarn. Mmmmm new patterns, new knitting possibilities (must.resist.casting.on.until.have.finished.sockapalooza. sock!! At least!!)
