We were asked if we could postpone Biko's Test until tomorrow, because they had an emergency, and needed the MRI for another patient. Well, we would have canceled anyway, there's no way we were going down there today. Tomorrow the weather's supposed to be fine, so that's good.
I'm a little ashamed, because I got wrapped up in the "Wollmeise" craze, and I couldn't/wouldn't resist to purchase this fabulous kit. It's Yarnissima Digitessa sock kit, with Wollmeise sock yarn.
I've admired Yarnissima's "Firestarter" sock pattern, but have not had a chance to give it a try. This is the very first KIT I've ever bought, and it was such a pleasure to receive it. I'm going to try to get her newest sock kit "Spina Di Pesce" at some point too.
Receiving this package was like getting a birthday gift (only you pay [gladly] for it). It was wrapped in pink tissue paper, there were bows, and tags, and MILKA chocolate eggs!!!, and some caramel candy (don't think it's the candy I'm going for with this kit). The pattern is eight pages long, and there's a laminated chart as well. It's so very professional, and put together with love, it makes me happy just to look at it.
And, I haven't even said anything about the Wollmeise sock yarn yet. The color on the print out didn't do a lot for me, but haveing the real deal in my hands, oh boy, that's some gorgeous sock yarn. The colores are so vibrant, and satiated, it's unbelievable. This one skein is 100% superwash merino/574yds (my only complaint, that it has no synthetic in it for more durability) 150g.
I WANT MORE WOLLMEISE!
Sheesh, were did that come from? But it's THAT fantastic! I'll look at it for a while now. Still have other things to do, and don't want to use my only skein Wollmeise just yet. :o) Might be the first sock yarn, put on display in the living room. I think every knitter should have a petestal, or at least a shelf to put their most exquisit yarn on. Don't you think? :o)
Oh, yeah, and still no spell checking here!
