Knit Picks!!

I got a shipment today! I know! I'm so excited. Let me show you what came...

First I needed some more Knit Picks supplies. I ordered two sets of cables and a second set of both 7's and 5's. I also got some of the buttons that are the rainbow colors like the KP Options. I LOVE THESE!!

I also got some some Wool of the Andes in Coal and Telemark in Cream and because I already have some colors stashed and I thought these would give me t he perfect opportunity to work on some fair isle work.

and then there's this! this is the reason i place the order in the first place (really i don't know how the other things ended up in the basket. i'm blaming it on... uuuhhhh... the mouse slipped? yeah! the mouse slipped! lets go with that one) it's the Swish Bulky in Squirrel Heather. And I love the color

It's merino. It's soft and comfy and I can't wait to turn it into the Windowpane Coat from Interweave Knits. I'm so excited to get started!

On a side note I saw this as I was leaving for work today

I heard that it is something called "rain" that comes from the sky. hmmm. Apparently it's a natural and common phenomenon. But really I just don't trust it. I mean water comes from the black hoses running along the ground under the bushes. Not the sky. Right?

You are too funny! A yarn delivery day is a good day. Those buttons look lovely, expensive much? How is the Wool of the Andes? I'm thinking about ordering some for a gansey for the husband. Looks scratchy to me.

Rain. I know a cat called Rain. She's not wet at all like that.

I saw no rain! You fabricated this picture! Stu told me yesterday while we were on a walk that this week marked the "rainy season" here. Ha! Riiiiight.

Love the yarn!
