Really, photos can't do justice to the beauty that is this yarn. Definitely one of my favorites by BMFA (and to tell you the truth, I was seriously considering not re-upping to the sock club, but they hooked me again with this yarn. We'll see what the next kit looks like).
And why the startitis? I think because my other projects are Big Projects on Little Needles (ms3, my rowan sweater knit on size 2 needles to name just a few). I'm sort of craving something that is more, um, instant gratification. So how excited was I when "Twinkle's Big City Knits" arrived yesterday and I found a sweater I could make with less than 500 yards of chunky yarn and I think I have that in my stash?
The only problem was, when I looked, is that while I have 500 yards it is not all in the same color. So i think the ribbing will be brown and the body will be camel. I think it will look cool, and I think it will knit up like a firebolt. Pics manana.
And yes, an entire post with no dog news...which is good, because we're all just stretched out in a big puppy mess of love.
