It's been remarked that I've been *somewhat* on edge while I waited for yarn to arrive. And by *somewhat*, they meant that I was chewing the table legs. What can I say? The heart wants what the heart wants. And in my case, it's string. Specifically, This String:
It's Rauma Strikkegarn, from Norway, via the Yarn Guys. Yep! I'm starting the sample Fanakofte for my Stars and Stripes class! And this is a particularly virulent case of start-itis. I haven't knitted a stranded colorwork sweater in at least a year and a half: Much, much, too long for me.
And I *may* have anticipated the need for applied trims in this project. Anticipated, yes, but not actually decided on one. In a rare moment of clarity, I pulled the trigger on an entire collection, knowing I will use them all at some point. Really. I will. Look HERE for yours.
And with that, it's time to get going. Start your engines!
