I’ve been coveting Tanis yarn in the color Iris for a while. Ever since I saw this post. Those socks are so beautiful! I could not find that color at my normal Tanis sources, and I didn’t want to order directly from her because I’m impatient, and used to priority mail within the states. Which is pretty silly because her shipping does not take long at all considering its coming from Canada and going to Texas. I also checked Ravelry stashes. Understandably nobody was willing to sell or trade it. I just found it at a U.S. retailer so by this time it would have been here for a month from Canada, but anyway moving on..I got it at eat.sleep.knit and yes it was here within about 2 days yay.
It does not disappoint in person. Im looking forward to the day I get all these projects off my needles and I can go forth with a fresh perspective and pick beautiful new yarns from the stash and start some new projects!
I also picked up some yarn from a Ravelry destash. I got two skeins of Tosh Merino Light for 35 dollars. Over 800 yards. Enough for a shawl. After I bought it I realized it was a single. So far I hate singles but it was too late. It’s a good lesson to do your research before you buy a yarn based on color alone. This color is turning out to be hard to photograph. Its called Manor and its a dark blue green color, but in all my pictures it looks black.
We will see if I like this single any better than others. I doubt it. The only single I’ve used has been Malabrigo Lace and it turned into a beautiful finished object but I did not like knitting with it. Which reminds me I need to destash that Mal Lace.
Well have a good knitting weekend folks.
