Knitty's Cargo pants

I've been pretty crazy busy with tax season and feeling about seventy per cent like myself, but I did manage to create baby pants from two skeins of the 100purewool. (colorway june)

More on ravelry!

- Got my Co-op yarn

I got my yarn two days ago and haven't posted about it because I've been too busy petting it, showing it off, and casting on!!!!

Here is my post on my blog (so I don't have to re-type all about it):

Two days ago I came home and much to my delight there was a box full of yarn from 100purewool! This wool is soooooo soft and beautiful! I am in love (don't tell the BF, he'll get jealous) he, he!

Anywooooo, I immediately cast on with the Anuk which is a purple and brown mix, and made my eyes water with happiness just looking at it. I cast on Silver's Palindrome Hat and it looks awesome! Of course I'm only 7 rows in, but MAN it looks good. The yarn is going to be sooooo warm. The BF and Little jr. can't keep their hand off of the yarn, which is fine except when I'm knitting (or trying to knit) and they keep trying to feel the working yarn......aaarrrrggghhhhh! Lol, at least they have good taste in yarn. oooooh 100purewool, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.....

Well, here is a list of what I bought from the co-op:

2 skeins of festival
3 skeins of Padua
3 skeins of Anuk
3 skeins of Dorado & Carmesi
3 skeins of Poisen
AND
2 skeins of Mysterious

I will have to take pictures of the yarn, it's so SO beautiful, I want to share it with the world....visually, of course.

My yarn is here!


I got my yarn yesterday! 4 skeins of 1-ply Festival, and one Chagall Night. The Chagall Night is actually completely different than the website shows it, and not really in a good way. But I'll find something to do with it.


The Festival is darker than shown, but still pretty. Very foresty, appropriate for now, when all the leaves are falling! I cast on for Clapotis last night.


Also, I had a horrible time trying to wind my first skein. I only got about half, maybe 2/3 of it. The rest is all tangled. I'll need to untangle it when I find the energy, since I think the Clapotis will take all the yarn. So be warned...


All in all, great yarn, though! Very, very soft, and actually, more even than Malabrigo is. I love it.

no more shipping until wednesday

My husbands' cousin (practically sister) is going in for a very serious surgery tomorrow. As a result, we will be out of town for 2 days, and w/o internet. This also means I won't be able to ship anything until Wednesday.

If you have a delivery confirmation from me, then your yarn has been shipped.

I am so sorry for anyone that is put out by this, we were not expecting her to go in for surgery until later this week. Please keep her in your prayers for a good diagnosis and swift recovery, that that the doctors hands are steady and strong, and that her two young kids feel safe.
