Jitterbug!!!



In this post I talked about buying some "creative packs" (ie: mill ends) from Colinette.com. I had them sent to Colin in Sweden and he sent them to me. The package arrived yesterday and was full of awesome treats! Thank you Colin!!!

I got a total of 21 colorways in various mini skein sizes. I’m so excited.

I’m on the fence about what to use them for.

I suppose I should also consider the fact that I just bought a one pound (!!) bag of "endlots" (ie: mill ends) of handpainted sock yarn from Cherry Tree Hill. So I'm about to have another zillion yards of random sock yarn ends. Yummy.

CWS just helped me pick out the colors (Jitterbug: Vatican Pie and black) for his sister's Christmas gift. His sister is a former employee of mine and I'm crazy about her so it feels right to knit for her. I'm going to make her a Daybreak Shawl. I'm ready to cast on NOW but I think I'll force myself to finish the Ulmus first.
