One Weird Thing About Me
I get stressed when yarn cakes start to look like this:
This is a cake of Lanas Puras Melosa - a handdyed, single ply, very soft yarn from South America. When I'm getting close to the end of a wound skein of yarn, I start to worry about the integrity of the skein dissolving and tangled ends. Of course I can't think of a time when this has actually happened (other than that one time a wound skein of Handmaiden's sea silk disintegrated into an unruly mess - that's slippery stuff). I think this discomfort is related to my similarly weird phobia of melting ice cream (okay, so that's two weird things!).
Speaking of ice cream, here's some recent stash acquisition:
It's kidsilk haze in a new shade - ice cream (doesn't that sound yummy?). It's a pale pink/peach/cream color that's very delicate. I think it's going to become that pullover I designed and just sent off.
In other news, the cover of the book I contributed a design to was just revealed. The cover jacket was designed and knit by Olga - go and congratulate her on a job well done! :)
I really like the photography (photography can really make or break a knitting book) and can't wait to see what the other designs are like.
