I know we need the moisture, but this is ridiculous!
Here is the "My Year in Temperatures" scarf. It's getting to where you can see the temperature trends -- no pinks in March.
Here's a close-up of the March rows. More greens and yellows toward the end of the month.
Yarn ReportI wasn't kidding, either, when I reported that I scored big at The Loopy Ewe yarn shop on my way to Cheyenne last weekend. (BTW, if you see something you like, they do online and phone orders.)
I know I can get Cascade 220 Superwash at Table Rock Llamas, but I needed this bright green to match my Sephora nail polish.
This is Gobelin from Biscotte & Cie. Yes, is's 100% superwash merino -- the color is Poisson Tang. Literally, it means "tang fish," but I'm sure it means something else. Maybe a follower who speaks French can help?
Can't go wrong with Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted. I wanted an unusual-for-me color, and isn't this mint green sumptuous?
I've used a lot of Madelinetosh DK weight, but this is worsted weight Tosh Vintage. The color is called "Stargazing." Reminds me of friend Mary and me looking up at the stars from outside her cabin in Colorado -- until she mentioned the mountain lion she had seen earlier in the week. We stargazed from inside after that.
This pretty is from another new-to-me company, Fable Fibers in Charlotte NC. One of my Knitter Buddies now lives in Charlotte, I think -- right Diana B? Hmm, maybe a personal shopper in the works?
I'm a long-time Blue Moon Fiber Arts fan, but haven't used much of their yarn since I stopped knitting socks. I didn't realize their "Socks that Rock" heavyweight is "almost" worsted weight. This colorway is called "Frosty," and the hank has 350 yards. That's enough for three hats!
With our April snow, it's a perfect day to curl up and knit Hats for Sailors. Go here for the detes, and I hope you will consider knitting a hat for a sailor, too!
