My New Pet

It's warm, and fuzzy, and soft. I shall pet it, hug it, and name it George.

Three Irish Girls in Brigit

I am part Irish

And I love green!

Bell and I wound it. Now what to make with it...

I have spent the last few months telling myself I do not, absolutely not, need this skein of yarn. For one thing, I don't use sock yarn really. For another thing, I don't need a 35.00 skein of merino/cashmere sock yarn. For a third, I absolutely don't need more yarn at all. And I mean, I can spin Cashmere, I have it sitting here in droves. I can even handpaint it.

But a trip to the LYS today, ended up with George in my bag. Now, this is way too nice for any pair of socks I might be able to turn out. So what should I make this pet yarn into??? Hmmmm.

What else came from the LYS? A skein of Malabrigo Rasta is Seattle Mariners colors. A skein of Malabrigo Rios for a hat. And a skein of Malabrigo twist for a scarf. Evidently it was a Malabrigo kinda day.
Mercury believed it was an electric throw kinda day

So did Neptune. They've figured out how to turn these on.

  1. Oooh, those yarns that are pets. I have a couple that are my handspun.

    I had a cat that would turn the tv on. That's pretty smart to turn on the electric comforter.
