I passed on February's color SWAK. I just didn't like it-too dark, too moody and smacking of Valentine's Day. I must be an aberrant female as I don't go in for the gushy love holiday nonsense. So, I feel nothing having lost out on the SWAK yarn. I bought some pretty navy Schaefer Heather yarn instead. On Feb. 20th, I went back to Jimmy's and saw the promise of the end of winter in the Spring Forward colorway. Of course, I bought it. I don't like Easter egg-like pastels, but someone will.
The yarn for April is called Lily Pad. For some reason, it reminds me of my sister (or more appropriately, the beautiful, multilevel pond she has covered in lily pads). So I'm clicking my option to buy and I'll knit some socks for my sister. True, she could knit her own, but it's always nice when one knitter makes something special for another. I'll leave them for her at her home in Virginia next month.
OK then, since I now have my April Yarn from Jimmy Beans, you can go fetch yours. Better be quick though; it sells out fast. You don't want regret at having missed the boat.
