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?
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…
