Last week, I was feeling very over-whelmed and I decided I needed some me-time. For many of my female colleagues “me-time” would involve getting a facial, a hair-cut or shopping for new shoes. These things would be living hell for me – especially now that the only hairdresser I’ve trusted in years has run off to Jersey to get married, the cheek of him!
No, my idea of me-time is to take out all my sock weight yarn and try to decide which pattern to make with each: heaven!
The box on the right doesn’t represent all of my sock-weight yarn – not by a long-shot! Instead, it’s a a little box of treats: a selection box of those skeins I hope to knit this year. Considering there’s 12 projects there and only six months left in the year, I’ll be doing well to get them all done! But it will certainly be fun trying.
From the top:
- Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Sock Yarn in colourway 15
- Dream In Color Smooshy in a petrol-y purple
- Hedgehog Fibers Merino / Cashmere in green, which I inherited from Clarabel
- Malabrigo Sock in Rayon Vert
So which one do you reckon will be best for Annis (the Knitty Surprise in the Spring / Summer 2010 edition of Knitty)… and why!
Answers in the comments here and I will give a prize to whoever comes up with the most convincing argument for any of the four yarns above.
