Alllllmmmooossstttt done with yet another pair of socks.
I am starting to bore even myself. Which is pretty hard to do :o)
First of all.
Guess the name of the yarn I used?
Not the company name...but the artsy name of the colorway.
If there is a winner they will receive a pair of teeny socks. (Ornament left over from Christmas.)
So guess away.
I should be making something other than socks very soon.
You see, I have a hard time parting with more than $25 at a time for yarn.
You can not make larger items for under twenty-five dollars.
And really that's okay. I have enjoyed every sock, ever felted buttonhole bag, and every hat I have made.
But, yesterday I read about Allison and Evan.
Allsion sells yarn at Supercrafty.
Her little baby boy, Evan, has a brain tumor.
Buying yarn from Supercrafty helps their family pay medical bills.
Now that is a very good reason for me to by some yarn to make a bigger project.
Perhaps that shawl I've been wanting...or a sweater for one of the girls...
So, I did. I bought ten skeins of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in light pink.
If you need to buy yarn or needles, or a pattern you might like to check out Supercrafty.
She has a 100% Ebay rating and her earnings go to a very important little guy.
So that's that. I'll let you know what I decide to knit with my pretty, soft, pink yarn. (It's already been shipped! Fine service!)
Encourage one another,
p.s. I read about Allison and Evan at Crazy Aunt Purls blog.
