Julia also sells Mountain Colors Bearfoot sock yarn mill ends, which also please my soul to no end. Here are my latest treasures recently purchased from Wild Purls:
Couldn't you just eat them? So I consume them with circulars instead.
The pattern is Ripple by Wendy Bernard of Knit and Tonic fame. I absolutely love this hat to the Nth degree. I think this is one of the best uses of this stitch pattern I have seen in Knitting Land. The fabric may be too perfectly slouchy with size 3 needles because I didn't have size 2s (but do not worry, I remedied that that problem at Wild Purls today). I feared it would be too big for my friend, so I would have to keep it. Turns out, she has as big as head as me (who knew?) so now I will be forced to knit another hat for me with the pastels (on the left in the wood bowl). I hope to crank out some mittens and a cute little scarf to match. Don't tell her.
My daughter is still on meds for an ear infection and the medicine, as she said this morning, is "the baddest thing I have ever tasted." I empathized with her but she kept going.
"You know what is the other baddest thing I ever tasted?"
Who's child is this?
Happy Thanksgiving, fellow knitters. Turkey and yarn. Perfect day, no? (besides lobster)
