There is just SOMETHING about her colors. Onscreen they’re gorgeous, but in person they are so vibrant and rich they just about knock your socks off.
I caught Claudia’s shop update on 6/20 (due to Alisha calling me at 8am and alerting me that she had updated her listings) and got my packages in on Tuesday. Then, by sheer dumb luck, I caught her update again late yesterday afternoon. Let’s just say that I’ve spent far too much on Wollmeise lately, but I do believe I’ve got my “fix” for now. I picked up a couple of colors I wasn’t crazy about and am going to trade for other Wollmeise.
First Sonne – and let me say it’s pretty damned hard to make orange look good, but Claudia did it. Not my style at all, so I traded it for some Veilchen (which I’ll photograph once I get it).
Next is Zenzi – which is interesting, but I might trade it.
Then there’s Frosch:
And Red Hot Chili:
And my current favorite from the bunch, Rosenrot. So rich and lovely:
Aside from buying far, far too much yarn, I’ve not been doing much. I’m getting ready for a vacation that starts on July 12th. (yay!) Laura and Alisha are both out of town, but I did get to hang out with Nessa last night at Hank’s. There weren’t quite as many people as there have been in the past, which was kind of nice.
I am a terrible, boring blogger. That has to work today and tomorrow. The nation thinks it’s a holiday but it’s not for me!
