It's Fate

There was no way I could not have been a crafter, not with family enablers like I have.  First, my mom rescues the afghan project (and supplies enough yarn for a second one).  Then I see my sister and out of the blue she presents me with this absolutely delicious merino sock yarn from Deep Water Dye Works, dyed by one of her craft show friends.   I'm so lucky!  (And then they combined to supply boxes of quilting fabric, but that's a story for another post.)
lovely yarn
(Yes, that's Biscuit contributing fluff along the top of the photo.  I got several photos of a blurry cat head before his attention was drawn to something outside and I managed to photograph the yarn.)  

Now the urge to instantly cast on a new lace sock pattern, possibly with beads, has seized my brain.  Fortunately (or not) the week is proving too insanely busy to spend time surfing Ravelry for patterns, so I'm still crocheting afghan squares. (I'm over 70 as of this first stopping point is 108, my second 144.)

Stay tuned for the next gripping episode!  Will she succumb to the lure of the sumptuous sock yarn?  Will she remain faithful to her cheery afghan?  Will Biscuit cover everything with so much fluff you can't see the colors?  (Well, yes, that one's a gimme.)   Not even the knitter knows!


  1. Hon, you are going to LOVE this yarn. I bought some at Winslow and just finished working 2 pair of mitts. It has an absolutely delicious hand.

  2. Hmmm... Well, if it were me, the socks would be in with a chance, no doubt :)

  3. I'm so glad that Biscuit is becoming a help to you. :)

  4. I want some enablers like yours!

  5. Make the socks, make the socks! Just don't put beads far enough down the foot that wearing shoes is awkward.
