This yarn was amazing. I'm buying more.
I got so excited to start Project Spectrum that I went and bought 28 skeins of Knitpicks Merino Style (3,444 yards!) the other day to make a project to be revealed at the end of the summer. Where the yarn is going to go once it gets here, I have no idea. But I was so inspired by the whole idea and all of the gorgeous blooming Pear, Peach, and Dogwood trees in my backyard that I couldn't help myself. I am incredibly excited to start this project. Maybe I'll drop hints over the summer as to what it is. Maybe.
My mother, aunt, grandmother and I are going to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival this coming weekend. Needless to say, I don't know how I am going to be able to concentrate on my final exams this week. All I keep thinking about when I am trying to study or write a paper is what kind of yarn I'll buy. Sock yarn? Maybe some roving so I can learn to spin.
I am still working on my Rambling Rose sweater. I haven't made too much progress as the Mountain Colors socks took precedence only because I wanted to beat Wanda at my knitting group on Thursdays. She's been working on the same pair of socks for 4 months. And she's still not done the first.
