Deciduous

I finished Deciduous this morning.

I am writing up the pattern today and I hope to have it posted, on Ravelry and here, by Monday. My mother saw Deciduous while it was still a W.I.P. and now wants her own pair in “tropical” colors.

On the fourteenth I ordered three skeins of yarn from a yarn shop  in Portland of all places. Thursday they arrived.

They’re individually wrapped in tissue paper. I enjoyed unwrapping them. It was rather like Christmas.

It’s Ambiente by Schoppel-Wolle, 100% virgin wool, sport weight, 50g per skein, 169 yards per skein. The colorway is 1863magic. I’m thinking a pair of socks. I would like to design them myself, the only problem is that I wouldn’t be able to come up with the heel on my own.

I was on the knitty blog the other day and I found a very cool commercial for natural gas.


The company covered-then unravled- a house with knitting.
