New Year, New Yarn

Two of my favorite podcasters had after Christmas sales on their yarn, and I couldn’t resist. My stash is in a good place, so I don’t feel guilty about buying more yarn.

I bought two skeins of Stranded Dyeworks Merino Sport in Batcave. The color is unlike anything I’ve worked with before, and I think I’ll be working into some colorwork with black as the other color.

I also picked up some Chormatic Yarns by the Corner of Craft Sturdy Sock in Guardian of Nature. I love this colorway. I don’t know what I’ll make with it, but it seems a waste to use it on socks (which I rarely say). I also picked up an enamel pin, as I am unable to resist enamel pins. She sent a bag of Bird and Blend tea with the yarn, which I hope to brew and sip while I’m knitting this weekend.

I am very excited to knit with yarn dyed by people I watch regularly. It almost feels like I’ll be knitting with them in person.

  1. I love Amy’s podcast and yarn. I only have 1 skein of hers which is her MCN base so I haven’t yet found the perfect project for it yet…it’s too nice for socks. I like the idea of a project using the bat cave with black. I’m also patient so I’ll wait to see what they eventually become.
