Speedy Delivery!

I am stunned at how fast my yarn arrived from Scotland. I ordered it last Thursday from Virtual Yarns and it was waiting for me today, exactly a week later. I was prepared to wait a lot longer.

They yarn feels soft to the touch and the colors are beautiful, heathered and rich. It's tempting to dive right in, but I'm making careful plans on how to proceed. There are so many colors I'm going to have to organize them because once I wind them into skiens, they will lose all those nice labels. Maybe I'll make a color card.

I finished Jim's Spiral Yoke sweater today, but it needs a good blocking before its photo shoot. For some reason, the front bunches up around his chest so that he looks like he needs a Manziere . I have to say, I'm underwhelmed. Oh I'm sure you will all tell me it looks nice, and I suppose it does, but I look at it and it's just: meh. Perhaps it's because I'm feeling a little under the weather today. Anyway, now you know.

  3. Oh, that's going to be gorgeous. I'm looking forward to watching this one bloom into existence.

    (P.S. - I've read of some people running out of yarn with AS kits, although I can't remember if it was specifically Oregon or not. You might want to double check that you've got enough.)

  4. Gorgeous yarn!

    We prefer "bro" to manziere in this household. ;-)

    Feel better!
