No whining in this post, I promise! I have a yarn savior, and she rocks! After my near-meltdown over running out of yarn for my Tomtens and then discovering the yarn I needed had been discontinued and sold out since I had bought some a week earlier, I posted a comment on Cara’s blog making reference to my woeful situation. Next thing I know, Blog Angel Megan, having read my whiny comment on Cara’s blog, packed up and sent me 3 hanks of the yarn I needed – gratis! She even went to the trouble to frog a scarf to get 2 of the hanks for me. How freakin’ cool is that?!
KnitPicks Sierra, in Pool
(I know the picture doesn’t do the color justice, but I was entranced by the late winter late afternoon light)
I think those 3 balls of Pool have me set for the blue portions of my Tomtens. That just left me needing some more Lettuce to do the green portions. Solution? You guessed it….
I’m going to frog and harvest from the first sweater I ever made.
My Old Man was never completely comfortable with the fit – he didn’t feel it was as flattering as he would like, and therefore it has not gotten all that much wear. At first I felt sentimental about the possibility of frogging my first sweater, but now I think it feels right. In fact, it feels very resourceful and Zimmermanesque to be reusing yarn in such a way.
Oh, but when it comes to yarn karma? Sean has us all beat, for sure.
LOVE that yarn karma. You go on those Tomtens, girl!
How cool is that?! Knitters are wonderful people and this fact is reinforced on a regular basis!
Yippee!! Tomtems be rescued!!
I’m glad the yarn got to you safely (and quickly)! I hope everything goes smoothly for the Tomtens now.
