First off I would like to recognize the sacrifice of all the veterans who have fought in this country's wars as well as those who served in peace time. Thank you for your service to the country and the sacrifices you have made to carry out this service.
Totally unrelated to veterans' day is my recent yarn purchases. I have been fairly conservative with buying yarn, as of late. But with my birthday approaching I gave in to the siren song of the hand painted and dyed yarns out there on the web.
My first purchase was from Ball and Skein. I bought three skeins which I don't seem to have the names of but they are fairly accurate below. I think they might be fallen leaves
and dress blues. I then made a purchase from Dani at Sunshine Yarns in Costa Rica, Indian Corn and Plunge
and she included a free skein of a color called Pop. They are calling my name and I would love to cast on for more socks as I have been wearing my hand knit socks all week but other than an occasional row on the Pomotomus sock, it seems all my knitting is focused on Jade, my NAKNISWEMO sweater. I will give you an update on that tomorrow.
