I Love a Good Yarn

Yarn, stories, and sometimes stories about yarn

With vacation coming up this week, it’s time to plan for airplane/layover and travel knitting. My original plan had been to bring along a couple of the skeins of the beautiful Hudson Valley-inspired hand-dyed yarn that I’ve been receiving as part of my yarn-of-the-month subscription from The Perfect Blend. But I became concerned about taking my new HiyaHiya interchangeables, as they are metal, and they are fairly sharp. I didn’t have the right sizes in my bamboo circular collection, so I decided to seek out a different project(s) for the trip.

Having just finished my first Andrea Mowry design, the Om Shawl, I think I’m now ready to jump on the Find Your Fade bandwagon and make that my fun vacation project. I had a ball sifting through my sock and fingering-weight yarn, laying the skeins out and deciding what would create the color scheme I wanted. Conveniently, I spent the day in Manhattan yesterday and managed a quick stop in at Knitty City for a couple new colorways. I’m pretty pleased with what I came up with and can’t wait to see what it will look like when it all comes together.

I’ll be spending a few days in Wales with a wonderful friend, who has actually agreed to take me to the National Wool Museum, even though she is not a knitter. I’ll also have about four days in London, where I plan to swing by Loop, I Knit London, and possibly also the yarn section of Liberty of London. It will be a busy week+, but I can’t wait!

    I really like the yarn you’ve picked for your Fade. I look forward to watching it progress.
