I need some restraint from Humid-weather-shopping-not-knitting


Oh dear! reading all those posts about wonderful merino (KR), led me to search for it on handpaintedyarn.com, then ebay, Webs site, etc. Here is one of the results. I purchased 3 skeins of this lovely purple, pink, periwinkle combo. Click on it to fully see it. This photo is from handpaintedwool shop on ebay, but it is accurate. It arrived yesterday from Uruguay and no, I didn't sleep with it!

I have no idea what to make with it. It is so hot outside, I can't imagine touching it for long, or a time when it will be so cold to wear it. After all, it measures about 650 yards. So lovely.

Maybe I should reduce my time reading at KR too! It is addicting and I don't want to fall behind on something that I could really use! lol Shel

How do, Shel.
Hey - it's Marfa from the KR Forum.
Your blog entries are engaging to read & I like the addition of your photos - great job, you seem to be getting the hang of this quite well ^..^
I like the colors of the yarns & projects you have so far shown - they're my colors too.

hey, nothing wrong with sleeping with your yarn. I've done it on several occasions... I'm not ashamed to admit it.
