I ordered new yarn! January 3, 2009
Last night I ordered 2 skeins of Semolina and 2 skeins of Cornmeal Palette yarn to put together a purse for my Etsy shop. I love the bright yellow color, but didn’t want it to be solid because I thought it might be too much. So hopefully the Cornmeal complements the Semolina well when I actually get the yarn. In theory it looks great together.
I also ordered some Imagination Sock Yarn in Woodsman. Yarn that switches color on its own always makes me a little nervous because while it looks pretty in the skein, sometimes when it’s knitted up it can look not so pretty. I made sure to flip through Ravelry and see what other people have knitted up with the different colors of Imagination and felt that Woodsman would be the best color to knit my dad a pair of socks from. The next thing on my to do list is either a) pick a pattern (I couldn’t find one last night that I really liked) or b) make it up on the fly (which I’m okay with).
I haven’t received any word on when the Qiviuit is coming for my uncle’s hat. What I want to knit him is basically Swell from Knitty.com. The original pattern I wanted to use was “Snowboarder hat that Rocks“, but it requires bulky yarn and if I plan to knit double stranded with the Qiviuit it won’t be the right thickness.
For right now though I will anxiously sit and wait ’til my yarn comes. 😀

I’ve got 3 items up on Etsy! The latest one was a quick knit! Since last week I knit myself a new wallet, I decided to make another one for my store. Instead of making it big enough for a checkbook, I decided to shrink it a bit so it’s a little bigger than credit card size. I knit with a strand of the KnitPicks essential sock yarn and a strand of my leftover Smooshy Flamingo sock yarn. They blend together beautifully! I also think I’ve found a great little item that I can start adding to my Etsy inventory on a regular basis.
