Yarn order

Trying to get ones knitting mojo back is a hard task but I think I might be gaining on that.  Periodically Knit Picks* says “goodbye” to some yarn colors and I happened to spot two that I liked.  As I’m a member of Helen Stewart’s The Handmade Sock Society 2, I’m desperately stash diving for yarns that I like.  If you have any kind of a stash (fabric, fiber, dyes, threads, paper, office supplies, cigars, etc.), then you sometimes buy items that you wanted to try but then don’t particularly like anymore.

So here I am with some sock yarn that falls into that stash category of I-don’t-really-like-this-color-anymore or the What-was-I-thinking?  I should just sell or trade them on Ravelry…and I will once I find the gumption to list them.

Back to the Knit Picks “goodbye” sale… I needed a knitting pick-me-up sp I found Hawthorn Fingering Multicolor yarn had two such “goodbye” colorways that I loved.

Rich blues and purples of Goose Hollow…

…and the deep blue-greens that morph into warm yellow greens of Cully.

Goose Hollow is still available but evidently, Cully is sold out.

And to round out my order (for free shipping) a pair of super sharp steaking scissors.  These 4-inch little gems are VERY sharp, fit nicely in my knitting gadget bag and have a point protector.

  1. Getting your mojo back is always bumpy, because there are things you have to remember that you used to do without thinking. Just went through that with my sewing, which I haven’t done in over a year. Love the yarns you got and I think your description of a stash, which includes stuff you liked once but don’t any more, is right on.
