Getting ahead of myself

Spring has truly sprung here in the Pacific Northwest. Temperatures are in the 50’s; the crocuses and daffodils are glorious. And the first cherry trees are blooming, too.

What says spring better than a bag of cheery color from the yarn shop?


Twisted is now carrying Brown Sheep yarns. They carry three weights (bulky, worsted, sport) of Lanaloft, a single-spun 100% wool yarn, as well as an ultra-bulky known as Burly Spun. The price is great. I brought home some worsted weight to knit a shop sample of my felted slip stitch tote.

But wait, you say, what about the Heather Hoodie? I’m still plugging away at that, because I want to wear it before it gets too warm here! The back is done, and the left front is just past the armhole. Pictures next time.

  1. pretty!!!

  2. !! I can’t wait to see this bag knitted up. I just came across my pattern the other day. I’ll have to dig up some yarn and get cracking

  3. So pretty! Love all the color!

  4. WoW, very springy hues of colors. Trying to picture the bag…but it’s too blinding LOL. Can’t wait to see your hoodie! You go girl. If it’s anything like what we have here in High Desert, you’ll have a few more months of wear 😀

  5. Daffodils? I am so envious!

  6. You have crocuses and daffs blooming? I’m so jealous!

  7. Gorgeous colors! I’m hella jealous because it’s cold and rainy here.

  8. Yum! Lovely colours.

  9. Very pretty stuff! While enjoying the current projects, I’m so ready for them to be done too. 😉 Really do need to make a cardigan soon as well.

  10. What happy colors to offset the return of the rain! Ugh! I’m hoping that spring will return and stay!! 🙂

  11. The bag is going to be beautiful…can’t wait to see it.

  12. What is this mythical spring? It’s snowing here, again.

  13. Ohhhhhhhhh…such beautiful colors! I must look for this at my LYS!

  14. i noticed purple clover blooming this morning – spring is definitely on the way!

  15. I LOVE the Lanaloft yarn. Their colors are great and stitch definition has always been amazing. I’m not sure if that’s the single-ply nature of it or what, but I’m glad my LYS carries it. I’s pretty affordable too.

  16. New fiber is always a treat… spring, winter, summer, any time! But there IS something about spring that makes me think I need new yarn. 🙂 I think it’s called “tax return” and it has resulted in a nicely padded stash. I know you are anti-stash, but for those of us without a yarn shop nearby, stash is where it’s at. Love your pretty new fibers!

  17. Gorgeous colors – the bag is going to be so pretty!

    I’m very jealous about your spring weather though!

  18. oh you are embracing colour! Happy spring colours!

  19. Yum! I love those colors.
