Mountain Colors

Mr. Canada Post brought in a box from Mountain Colors this morning. Lots of new, fun colours of Twizzlefoot.

53% superwash merino
17% domestic wool
17% silk
13% nylon

411m/450 yards in a 100 gram skein.
We used 3 skeins of Twizzlefoot for this amazing shawl.

Pattern: Kaersta (purchased on Ravelry)

Lynn used the leftovers from the shawl to make a great pair of socks.

There were new Perspective Kits in the box as well.

Crazyfoot (fingering weight)
5 mini skeins
80m/90 yards each
One kit will make the Circular Perspectives Cowl (pattern purchased on Ravelry)

Twizzle (worsted weight)
5 mini skeins
40m/45 yards each

One kit will make the Perspectives Cowl (pattern purchased on Ravelry)

I'm going to get pictures of the new kits at home tonight. I've taken a bunch in the store and outside but they aren't doing the colours justice.

It's a day of good and bad. The good news - our box arrived from Mountain Colors. The bad - our boxes from Blue Sky Fibers are somewhere in the Canada Post system. Hopefully the strike/lock out doesn't last long and the boxes arrive soon.

We are getting sod on the front yard of our house. We've had possession for 15 months so it's about time. That is the good. The bad. I have been coming to work early for a few weeks and watering the garden every morning. With the hot weather and no rain the plants were suffering. I have them growing nicely and my daylillies were about to bloom. There were beautiful blooms coming on a few hostas as well. Deer came through last night and ate all the blooms. All of them. I was so sad.

The store will be closed tomorrow for Canada Day but I'll be back on Saturday from 10-4. Enjoy the day!
