I'm doing another book with Joan Tapper, I should remember from last time: working on a crafts/knitting book is in inverse proportion to how much crafting & knitting time you have for yourself. Oh, the irony.
When I received this yarn (ignore that link! edited a few days later, I found the ballband, its Dyenamics Yarn, I think in the colorway Farmers Market) in a swap , the knitter relieved of it was, well, truly relieved. She assured me she was tired of the colorway, showed me mittens & socks she'd knit from it, gladly waving buhbye. She may have gone so far as avoided further eye contact, in case I changed my mind and handed it back.
I think I understand. While I am loving the Wesh Traveling Sock (ravelry link) pattern, the colorway is doing the opposite of growing on me. It's sort of like dulled down Wonder Bread.
This here? My carrot on a stick yarn, Manos Rittenhouse, it is merino, plied and it will be a new slouchy hat, as soon as I get the sock done.Or, maybe sooner.

ps. There's a contest at JessaLu's blog celebrating her 5th blogiversary. Go check it out, give her a high five. As I read her entry, a thought trickled in, I checked my dates. This week is mine, too. Really? Five years?
