BSG Part 2
But first: we've been watching the John Adams miniseries that was on HBO and now is on DVD from Netflix (and obviously from other places). Two comments. First, where was I when they taught all about the American Revolution? This is all news to me. And I used to live in Boston and walked the Freedom Trail every day to work for several years. Honestly, I think poor John A. got sloppy seconds after Paul Revere. Second, I keep waiting for Abigail Adams to spin. Where does that family get all those great clothes? Spin, Abby, Spin!
But I digress.
First up is yarn that is not in the blue family! This is 450 yards of a beautiful pink mohair laceweight yarn. I think this will end up being a smoke ring or a mobeius cowl or something like that. the color is such a clear, true pink that I was just drawn to it. The price was right too...less than $15 for 450 yards.
I know, I say that every year...I want to make more textured socks. But I also need a mindless book-reading knitting project, and socks do such a good job for that category. I also have a mindless sweater on the needles...one using bulky yarn from Artful Yarns...so hopefully I'll be able to focus more on textured socks soon.
But again, I digress
So all in all, a good trip to BSG. Tim and I may drop by to see the animals and make sure there isn't anything left that I wish to purchase, but honestly I think I'm good. The overwhelming amounts of sock yarn was just not inspiring to me and my too big sock yarn stash (I think its time to start making more gloves!).
