So what was inside all the wrapping? A beautiful color printed la digitessa sock pattern (15 pages in total). A skein of Rohrspatz & Wollmeise yarn (574 yds). A mini laminated card containing the chart for the "Digitessa Central Upper Foot Pattern", Toblerone candy attached to the yarn and a notecard containing a handwritten thank you for my purchase! I am in love with this yarn. The color is so me and it is super silky soft to the touch.
I had never heard of Yarnissima's yarn and sock patterns before and I stumbled across a blog post of someome who had purchased and started the sock. Because of Knitting Therapy, I have a new longing for Yarnissima's items. I can't wait to get started!
Now for another FO. After work yesterday I was full of energy and decided to organize my table that contains a basket full of my current yarn, my current UFOs and misc knitting items. Resulting from my organization is another Binary Cabled Hat (pattern used for Hat Attack) and the beginning of another linen washcloth (no pics to show of it because I am only 12 rows into it). After I hit the gym this afternoon I finished my hat. I used leftover Patton's Classic Wool from when I made the slippers back in December. I only had 2 small bunches left and wasn't sure if I would have enough to finish the hat. Of course I did and even with a little bit to spare. Whew! I am really happy how this hat turned out for me. It fits very nicely and even comes down over my ears (unlike the one my assassin knitted for me - I wore it the other day and am not in love with it at all. The color is NOT me. Anyone want a hat? LOL). I'll be sporting this hat tomorrow on my field trip with Shameka as we venture into NJ to meet up with Kim. Modern Yarn here I come!
