Last night at SnB I ripped out two tank tops from last summer – the “Goddess”tank (ie. the criss-cross tank) from Vogue, and the “Jenna” tank from Berroco (too lazy to find the link).
The yarn doesn’t look to be too kinked up, probably because they’re both slippy mercerized cotton. So the question now is, of course, what to do with this yarn? I didn’t get around to ripping out syncopated ribs, because I actually wanted to knit…but since I’m just working away on Cozy and Soleil, there isn’t much of that to show.
Instead: the yarn of Insane Craziness.
This stuff is BRIGHT and I love it! I’m working on filling another “bobbin” (er…TP roll) and then I’ll ply ’em together. This wool (“colonial wool”) is super soft and really easy to spin – just a little bit o’ predrafting and I’m good to go. It’s been spinning up really fast, too, but maybe that’s just because I’m crazy for the colours.
Oh, and I got the first package from the Cotton-Ease Binge.
Unfortunately the colour’s all washed out in this pic (sunlight’s a double-edged sword) – it’s a very nice buttercup yellow. I shall be making a tiny-fitting cardi with buttons, sized according to a cardi from *ahem* Old Navy.
I think I need some chocolate. I’ll be sure to pick some up on the way home from my FINAL EXAM OF SECOND YEAR tonight! And then there shall be much crafting to celebrate!
