Hey, wanna see some yarn?

So, I thought I would show you some yarn today. It’s been a while since I posted anything knitting related, even though I have been knitting and buying yarn!

Let’s just start with the elusive sweater. You may recall me posting about embarking on the journey to knit my first sweater here. ย Wordpress tells me that was eight months ago. Sheesh, thanks for the pressure, wordpress!

Anyway, here are some sleeves. I finished the lower body sometime ago and now I just have to join them and start the owls. Cool, eh?

Oh, and I don’t think I showed you the wool I got from Scotland! It was really hard to find yarn when I was in Edinburgh and Glasgow, but when we did a day tour to Loch Lomond, there was a place we stopped for lunch that also had wool. So awesome. It’s made by a company called New Lanark Mills and I have plans for it. Stay tuned!

Aran weight, Woodland Haze, Shade Iris and double knitting weight in Shade Verdi. I don’t know what double knitting weight is; it must be a UK term.

Oh, and I bought some sock yarn the other day, to counter the gray sweater. It’s lovely, isn’t it? I don’t know who I’m making socks for yet. It was an impulse purchase.

Opal Gallery in Vereinte Herzen. It’s stripes, that’s all I need to know.

Yarn related, but not knitting, this is a present my daughter got for Christmas, and it makes me want to learn to crochet.

And completely unrelated to knitting or yarn, what I’m reading right now. Such a good book! Thanks, hubby!

Sorry for the poor quality of some of the pics. It’s dark here a lot now and I missed the sunlight yesterday!

Hope your knitting endeavours are going as well!
