New purple yarn

There I was at work last Thursday, when one of my coworkers paged back to the staff area to tell me that my mail had arrived.

I figured she just meant my daily stack of magazines for processing, until I went out front to grab the mail bin and saw a lovely Priority Mail box sitting on top of the rest of the magazines and junk mail.


I put in an order at Little Knits, and hadn't been expecting it to show up that quickly from Seattle. The box of smooshy goodness had 10 skeins of Ella Rae Silkience, "Italian Plum".

It's for one of the many sweaters I want to make. I'm not sure which sweater, but that's a minor detail.

And I broke down and got a skein of Kauni Effektgarn. I was in a purple mood when ordering.

I confess: I have taken to sniffing the Kauni. It has this wonderful natural woolly scent to it... which is no terrible surprise, since it is, in fact, wool. Wool that smells like wool. I'm not sure why I'm so taken by that fact. It's also mighty purty.
