Yarn Shopping

I am very excited about yarn that I ordered today. Hello Hue Loco. Lynn has been talking about Hue Loco for a long time and I am thrilled that Nicole has agreed to send us yarn.
Phyllis Sock
75% Merino, 25% Nylon
420m/460 yards on a 100gram skein

We have a lot of hand dyed single ply yarn so I chose a merino/nylon blend. You can use these lovely skeins for socks, shawls, sweaters....
We have 29 colours coming, 9 skeins each.


There are three brand new colours coming from Mrs. Crosby very soon.


A box arrived from Lynda today with the Hipster Shawl (pattern purchased on Ravelry). Oh my gosh. Love it!!!
I confess not being able to channel my inner hipster too often… But sometimes I knit pieces like this warn and fuss free shawl and I can feel myself instantly transported to the coolest, little known coffeeshop in town… 
Do you have an inner hipster?  
And if you don’t, do you have a bit of time and some worsted yarn around you? I promise this is the coolest quickest shawl you’ll ever knit.
Lynda used just under 4 skeins of tosh vintage. I can't believe it took so long for me to have this knit. Lynn has been talking about the Hipster for a long time and I should have listened to her. I might pack up 4 more skeins tomorrow and have her knit another one.

Our order from Spincycle did not arrive today. When I left for work at 8:15 the UPS website said it was out for delivery. I checked around 2pm and this is what I saw. I called and was told that UPS pulled their trucks off the road today. I politely asked (although I didn't feel like being polite) if they could deliver my box in the morning and not at 5pm like they sometimes do. We'll see.

We just finished The Masked Singer. Neither of us was correct tonight. I've discovered Apple Cinnamon Neo Citran. My mug is almost empty and it's time for bed.
