I got my yarn for the Central Park Hoodie!
Knit Picks Peruvian wool in 'Cranberry'. Love it. The colour is exactly what I wanted-- a deep, lipstick-red. Perfect. I was so excited, that after I swatched for gauge (and went up a size on my needles, so good thing I checked!), I started on the back.
I'm pretty excited about this project, and thanks again to Carrieoke for the inspiration!
Next up in today's yarn porn, we have something I've been coveting for a while:
Oh yeah, baby. That's 800 yards of 100% cashmere. So soft, I have to stop myself from constantly fondling it. So soft, I'm contemplating knitting myself cashmere sheets, I need to be surrounded in this bliss. Nothing is softer- not babies bottoms, not fluffy kittens, nothing. Since knitted cashmere sheets are not going to happen, I was thinking of something to sleep in made from this lovely pale pink softness. I'm still trying to decide between a camisole and short set, or a lovely and lacy short nightgown, with tiny, delicate straps. It's a shame I sleep alone, I tell ya!
