I always thought this was the most ridiculous fortune a cookie could offer, but then yesterday I got home from work to a postcard from Lisbon and a package from Ireland.
The package? Yarn I ordered from Hedgehog Fibres on Saturday. Not even a week ago! This is a bit different from the yarn I used to knit my Hummingbird Socks, though. I imagine it’s dyed the same way, but that yarn was a four-ply Merino/Nylon blend and this is a two-ply BFL/Nylon. It feels much springier, but that bit of nylon also makes me think it will hold up well. (I ordered yarn for Grace from Quince & Co. the same day – maybe in some late-April miracle it will arrive today!)
In other news, I am knitting another pair of Stepping-Stones for my mum and I swear these socks knit themselves. Barely a few hours in and I’m almost at the heel. It’s (almost) silly to knit quick socks at this time of year, since she won’t need them for another six months or so, but I don’t care. The next pair, though, is for me!
