New Stuff, part 2

"Away"

This beautiful yarn is, technically, 434 yards of fingering weight wool/nylon Superwash Colonial Wool Blend. It is one of Jessie's beautiful hand-dyed yarns, in a colorway called Away. It is a very subtle blend of grey, perinwinkle, lavender, and even a very muted rose tone. It's absolutely gorgeous. If you haven't bought yarn from Jessie.... well, more for me!

And what's under the yarn? Yes, it's two copies of the Fall issue of Interweave Knits.

Double IKs

This was the first issue since my move and, when in hadn't arrived by September 1, I emailed them. I got a reply within 24 hours, apologizing and saying they would get it right in the mail. Yesterday, more than two weeks after that email, I bought a copy. Guess what came in the afternoon mail? sigh......

So -- if you'd like my extra copy, just let me know. First come, first served!

Well if you hadn't bought one, you wouldn't have gotten yours in the mail. Glad you got one. I have a feeling that this will be a very sought after issue once they're all gone from the stores.

Oh, that yarn is lovely and is giving me ideas for colorways the next time we dye yarn...

I agree, Jessie's yarn is the best.

Saw your comment on Franklin's blog so I bopped over to say "Hi." I'm in Sioux City. What we have in common: Iowa, knitting, medical terminology (I used to transcribe, before law school); Franklin's blog; pets-as-kids (dogs, for me - two grown human sons, too). What we can have fun with: I'm a transplanted Sooner. You can e-mail me, if you like, at tommequilts@cableone.net.

So many good sock yarns to try... This is yet another one i have never seen before. I think Interweave might be having problems with their fall mailing -- I got two issues of the fall issue of Spin Off.
