Je ne sais quoi

I was feeling a bit guilty about this purchase until I realized my overtime last week paid for it. Lorna's Laces Honor in the most scrumptious shade of blue they call, Fjord.

I don't know what it is about Lorna's Laces yarn... the colors, the consistency, the softness, the sheen or the overall beauty, but the mailman rang the bell today, and I've forgotten all about that Pacific what's its name sweater and only have eyes for Cloud Chaser.

Don't act all shocked--it's not like you didn't see that coming.


There is snow and cold in the forecast for this weekend (what else is new?). Guess how I'll be spending my time?

Beautiful!

I would've bought it too - just to look at and pet.

Sapphire cracked me up too.

I loved the alpaca! That looks so gorgeous. I love the color and can't wait to see Pacific View all made.

Yay! The yarn came! I was hoping you could be fickle...such a pretty color. It's going to look great.

I love that yarn too. Making Brooklyn Tweed baby blanket from it right now. It's so lovely to knit.

At least the weather encourages knitting. It has been in the 60 here all month, I keep putting off knitting thinking I'll do it when the weather is nasty.

If this keeps up I'll have no knitting done this winter~

I'm looking foreword to seeing cloud chaser pictures!

Yum, yum! I'd be tempted to forego everything for that! It looks delicious.

I'm feeling a bit better. I was in St. Paul yesterday and bought some bamboo knitting needles. I don't know if they are quality ones (JoAnn's, after all), but they are working better with the cotton yarn than the metal.

Such a lovely colour. Peaceful and inspiring. I like your new header too Rudee.
