My favorite sock yarn – ever – is Schaefer’s Anne. I will spare you the reasons to my adoration as it is a long list. I will tell you however, this lovely yarn can be used for lace and not-so-lace projects as well and makes for a very color resilient and absolutely lovely knitted fiber.
I am in the middle of taking photographs of 250 or so skeins of Anne in new colors and thought a good sale would be the best way to celebrate this beautiful cornucopia of Anne colors. Couple of facts – Anne usually comes in 2-4 skein sets but due to requests we have ordered at least 6 skeins of each color line for our lace knitters who need more than 2 skeins from the same dye lot. And the second fact, Anne is going to go on sale at $19.99 (down from $25), which usually means that most colors get picked-up within an hour of listing – if you would like some and would like to have a good selection please be here on Sunday afternoon/evening.
On a more personal note, I just picked up a UFO lace project that has been sitting around for over a year! This project has 32 row repeats that result in different stitch count each row. Added to all these fun is the fact that I am knitting with deep charcoal yarn, my poor eyes. Last night I almost frogged the whole 5 feet of this project…long story short, I finally figured out which row I am on and some progress has been made. This time I am not quitting or putting it down until it is done. One last thing, my stitch tension has changed! I am a bit puzzled about this. The portion I knitted last year looks different than the portion I am knitting now. I sure hope blocking will even it all out. More later on this – I would love it if it got done by Christmas.
Hope you are all well and knitting with a smile.
PS. Diana, how am I doing?
