Not much knitting, but a lot of yarn receiving.
These are from the Madelinetosh Magnolia Society Club. The first two are the intense shipments:
And these are the pale shipments:
and that's not all ...
Here's the June Year in Color (I think) shipment from Sundara:
2 skeins of Crushed Cherries in Fingering Silky Merino.
I also have been smitten with a few of Ysolda Teague's patterns the past few days. This morning I bought the patterns for Damson and the Vine Yoke Cardigan. Both are just amazingly beautiful, and I trust her well-written patterns to shepherd me through to the finish line, unlike the many other WIPs I have lying around (her Ishbel was one of the only projects I've finished this year so far).
I've got a number of sock yarns that would do Damson well, but I'm fixated on the greyish-brown color for the Vine Yoke Cardigan. I've got 4 skeins of Malabrigo worsted in Pearl Ten (cue heavenly choir), which is of course nowhere near enough for a cardigan for me. I'm thinking about picking up a few more skeins online, but am I tempting the dye-lot gods? I'm thinking the cabling up top and around the sleeves will help hide any discrepancies. Right?
