Love at First Sight

Did you ever see some yarn and just fall completely, madly, hopelessly in love? You just can't live without it?

I have. It all began over at my friend Lisa's house. She had some yarn sitting out on her deck drying. I couldn't stop looking at it. I went and touched it, I couldn't stop touching it.

Finally, I decided, it had to be mine. Since she was dyeing it to sell in her Etsy shop, there was no problem. I asked about it. I had to have it.

I made a deal and brought it home with me. I wound it up and could barely wait more than a few minutes to cast it on. (Okay, I may have cast on at her house because I couldn't wait.)

Ah, isn't it beautiful?
I'm not going to tell you what I'm knitting though, not yet. I'm going to make you guess. I'll tell you later.

In other news, its been raining off and on for days here. I feel a bit like a mildewed, frog or something. But, on Saturday while travelling home with my mom from a family event, we saw a double rainbow. Gotta say it almost made the whole rain thing worthwhile.

I know the picture isn't that great but you can kinda see it. It's that cool?

Okay, I go knit my mystery project now.

Would that be a Clapotis?



(captcha is "in sin"--lol)

Yep, it is a Clapotis! How many did you cast on?

You lovely ladies are right! It is a clapotis. I am following the pattern but I'm knitting it on size 5 needles because it is technically sock yarn.
