Final Purchases

My last Eat Sleep Knit purchase of 2010 arrived today. Hubby got the mail. Here is the conversation that ensued.

HIM: “What was in the box?”

ME: “My last yarn purchase for a whole year.”

HIM:”Yeah, right.”

But, nevertheless, here it is in all it’s glory:

Five skeins Malabrigo Lace Sealing Wax

Two skeins Pagewood Farms Yukon New Horizon

There is, of course, one more package on it’s way. A box of Knit Picks yarn which I told the Man about, stressing that I ordered it last year. So, I still haven’t bought anything this year… and I won’t. This will have to be proven over time, though.

By the way, I just want to brag on my camera for a second. These pictures were taken in my living room, at night, under horrible lighting conditions. Yet, the color is vivid and accurate. Well, the red is a little less bright in real life, but for red, it is very close. (It is so hard to photograph red. Why is that?) Very cool. Thanks again, Mom! πŸ™‚

  1. Great yarn! I love sealing wax. It’s such a great color. Are you making another Wispy?

    What weight is the other yarn? My guess, for you, is it’s probably lace. πŸ˜‰ (I’ll just hop on over to esk and take a look.)

    I would have been VERY tempted to order 6 skeins of the Malabrigo so it would count extra for the marathon. Anytime I want 5 skeins, I always end up with 6 – can’t help myself. πŸ˜€

    Nice haul!

    • Oh, you’re right. Sealing wax. Pregnancy brain – what did I think ceiling wax was? πŸ™‚
      No, no more Wispy – except the one in olive for my cousin. I figured five skeins would be enough to make something good. We shall see what. I just really LOVE this yarn, and the color is lovely, so I knew I had to have it.
      The other is fingering weight. I want to do one of the many sock weight shawls I have in my favorites on Ravelry. DOn’t know yet which one it will be. πŸ™‚
