mountain meadow wool

in jr high,

at the end of lunch in the school cafeteria,

they sold creamsicles from a little ice cream cart.

on hot days, the line of kids waiting to buy

would wrap most of the day around

the big, old room.

when i first saw this yarn,

i picked out ‘natural cream color’ and ‘tesa orange’

because together they make up a creamsicle.

such yummy memories come to mind…

i was just going to

knit up a little two color swatch

in mountain meadow wool‘s alpine dk,

take a few photos, and put together this post.

honestly. that was all.

but this 3ply merino dk felt so great in my hands,

 with its just right light twist and

such fine stitch definition,

that before the swatch was even completely dry,

i’d planned out a new hat, cast on, and was working my way through the brim.

ha. guess my plans went a bit awry.

but i’m really going to enjoy the cozy of this merino when fall comes.

i wonder if wearing it will give me dreams

of creamsicles dancing

in my head?

‘hands’ taken from 19:1 ot psalms.

note: now for just a little of the nitty-gritty.

i was given these skeins from mountain meadow wool to review,

but, you all know me, and

a couple of free skeins of beautiful yarn

isn’t ever going to make me say i like what i don’t.

i’m much too stubborn and pig-headed for things like that…

    • not yet, samm, but i promise to holler when it is. we have summer weather here this weekend (in the 80’s and 90’s), so knitting with these creamsicle colors is definitely going to happen! just looking at them makes me think cool thoughts!

      • We are having the same weather! Which makes me feel overwhelmed with inside housework and outside gardening. I’m nearly finished that sleeve. I haven’t been knitting much this last week, for no real reason. Silly me. I tell myself that soon as the sleeves are done I can do the fun part, the yoke! So far that bribe isn’t working. LOL I go through little blocks of time where I don’t knit much, then go gangbusters back at it. Waiting for gangbusters!
