Picture Post

I haven't knit much in the past couple of days. I did manage to knit some rows on the Montego Bay Scarf, but to be honest, I haven't been home. Working weekends is proving to be a difficult transition for me. I know that I did make the right decision by changing jobs (the days really do fly by now, and I'm not chained to a desk), but I still feel very "NEW" and uncomfortable yet. I haven't slept well the past three nights. Today, I was so tired, I didn't take a nap. That doesn't really make sense does it? But imagine it! I don't think I've missed my Sunday nap in months!

So this post is more about the pictures. Here are the three skeins of lace weight yarn that I purchased from the Wollmeise. For you Muggles, this is the MECCA of all yarn. It is in such high demand that 200-400 skeins of yarn (Sheri would be able to tell you the exact number) sold out in less than 5 minutes on Thursday at TLE. Unbelievable! I managed to snag some of this at Claudia's last update at the beginning of March. Don't ask me how. I'm still waiting on another bag from that shipment, which is unusual.

I'm wondering if one of these skeins of yarn should become a simple lace shawl to wear for Maryland Sheep and Wool in early May (This festival is almost equivalent to Rhinebeck for those not familiar with this fiber event)? Does anyone have any suggestions for patterns that would work well for these skeins? I'm thinking the blue one would be really nice to use for May. Please post your suggestions in the comments. I'd appreciate it ever so much!

And PS - Enjoy the view of the yarn! I know I do on a daily basis. I'm looking forward to Tuesday, which is my day off this week to compensate for the weekend work. Hallelujah! Hopefully, I can get some cleaning done, and some time to just relax and knit. Oh, and how about a nap? :) Have a great week!

It's Tuesday, so hopefully you're enjoying yourself.

I'm envious of your Wollmeise. I stalked Sheri's site for days, refreshing and refreshing and refreshing my screen and still missed out on that five minute window. Some day.
