PSA: Nirvana has landed!!!

I know. You could faint. Could it possibly be TRUE!?!?

Yes, friends. It’s true. Nirvana worsted has finally landed after the longest “week” in history. “It will be ready to ship next week.” That week was over 60 days long! πŸ˜›

(No, this is not the most yarn I have ever gotten. In fact, this is perhaps 1/8 the amount of naked yarn in my house. See the table? The bins? Yep. Full. all full. πŸ˜€ ) Sometimes I fantasize that I could casually dye it all up to keep… and swim in… and drape over myself for clothes.

“Look! It’s the crazy naked yarn lady!” “Again!?” <rolls eyes>

Inevitably, there is then a child cacophony that breaks the spell of the wool high. I realize that instead, I must see it all to it’s proper home, where it will be loved… and not made spectacle of. πŸ˜‰

And so anyway… Nirvana is finally here, and I haven’t been online much. I’ve been dyeing COLORING (Zen Daddy prefers I not announce that I need to dye, or I’m going to dye… can’t wait to dye, etc… says it’s disturbing to hear. πŸ˜‰ ) like a mad mama. The secret lab notes will go out tomorrow, I’m terribly excited to see what everyone picks! There of course will be a contest for each club. I can’t get enough pay it forward.

In dyeing coloring news: I did up 4 skeins of sock yarn for me and my buddy, Kristina. We’ll have matching socks, and we’ll be gay and merry with our precious tootsies! Okay well, we’ll at the very least have some colorful ding dang feet!

If I do say so myself, it’s gorgeous. I’ll have to snap up some photos of the skeins. These were still drying on the line here, thus the weird shifting happening with the wind.

In the knews:

I still have this weird and wretched growth on the side of my finger. It still hurts like a __(something that hurts a lot)___ when I knit with any needle larger than a 3. Good for sock knitting, bad for regular knitting. So.. with that, Morocco in progress:

I’ve actually finished this sock and am a few inches into the leg of this little guys’ buddy. The colors in this yarn are so incredible. I find it almost impossible to get the color to come through the camera. This is my best attempt. They still match Bear’s lovely red cast <grumble grumble>, and he still loves them. All is well in sock land.

This blog post has gotten terribly long! But! I will be back with more shots of yarns and purdy fibers soon enough! I also have to take pictures of the COOLEST swap stuff I got from my lovely swap pal in Seattle! AND I got 2 new books in, must review. We must discuss. πŸ˜‰

Have a wonderful weekend, take a picture of what you’re knitting this weekend. Send it to me. πŸ™‚

Be well!

    The colors on this blog are like crack. I just want to keep staring. I wish I hadn’t missed the deadline for the sock yarn club; I’ll have to really pump up my spinning now that I’ve joined your fiber blog. Thanks for coming by my blog, by the way,.
