no, it's not part of a poem.
it's going to be knit
Something, as i don't know what yet,
but who can resist such lovely
soft (wool with bit of silk blended in)
yarn ? it's by Manos, as you can
see from the label. Want more yarn info?
you can check here for a link.
and up close
and in person,
it's a much darker shade of Moss Green
than it appears here in the photo.
the room must have been too bright.
How did that happen ? ?

this yarn is great. Bouncy and soft.
Something that knits up into
a delicious and gentle fabric.
Something that makes you say
"i can't wait to wear this."
however, i am foolishly
this deep olive shade
on Dark coloured needles.
and i'm knitting in a poorly lit environment.
And my lovely, dark and shiney needles
seem to be much slippier than i'm
So i'm having a bit of difficulty.
... it's not the yarn.
It's all me.
but i'm not breaking up
with the yarn . .
it's just hard to stick with it
under these conditions.
Maybe i just don't have
the fortitude for slippy & dark

Something new came home with me.
and it wasn't yarn. (surprise ! )
You may notice that i had a helper
of the Fuzzy variety
while taking the photos.
I thought that Julie
might want to see these
shoes - i know she loves shoe shopping
when she's not busy knitting or keeping shop.

In recent weeks, you saw a large pink
skein of wool hanging up.
it's not a skein anymore,
as it has started
out its new life as a sock.
while i realize that this is not
astounding and thrilling news for
Everyone, that's ok.
For me, a lovely pink wool sock
with cables is a terrific thing.
