Oops, Did I Buy Some Cormo?This picture may APPEAR to be 6 skeins of sportweight/light worsted weight cormo yarn drying after a nice bath. This cormo may APPEAR to have been sent to me by the truly lovely Sue from her farm in California. But appearances can be deceiving...
And sometimes things are exactly as they appear, and I'm left with agonizing choices like - what do I want to knit with this? Do I want to dye it? If so, what color?
And can I just take a moment to remark that the internets are EVIL? And that they allow you to purchase cormo with just a few emails with a lovely person who has a whole FLOCK OF CORMO SHEEP? (Side note - has anyone studied the severely addictive properties of cormo yarn? Also, is it wrong to want to make a giant cormo pile on my bed and sleep in it?)
In other knitting news, one gigantic sock is complete. My dearest friend Jesse requested a pair of "over the calf" socks for his birthday, so I'm attempting to oblige. His feet are about the same size as S', so I used my "S Sock Formula" and attempted to incorporate enough increases to make the leg fit. We'll see...
And the latest on Lace Edging vs. Yarn Left? Barring a knitting miracle of the highest order, I'm totally going to run out of yarn. SIGH. So to show that stupid lace who's boss, I'm putting it in a corner to think about what it did. Plus, I kinda was thinking I might be dyeing some Cormo soon, so maybe I could attempt to dye up the rest of the laceweight at the same time...
Finally, here are a few pics from our latest snow day ... and a little video of Abby showing that there's nothing better than playing in the snow and getting all wet and dirty when you've just had a bath the night before.
