So, since my writing has been an absolute flop the past few weeks, I thought I would share what I’ve been doing while I was SUPPOSED to be writing.
The hat and scarf are new additions to the mitts (made several months ago), so now I have a set! The yarn is a limited edition run from a wonderful independent dyer in Missouri, Nerd Girl Yarns. Christa is wonderful, her yarn is fantastic and she’s just a great person. I’ve never met her face to face, but she frequents the Ravelry group quite often, and she makes an effort to know everyone there, names and yarn preferences and… yeah, she’s basically amazing 🙂
Also, she has a blog.
The yarn itself is a MCN (merino/cashmere/nylon) blend called Come Hither (did I mention the yarn names are fantastic? Because they are.) and the colorway is called… (drumroll, please)… Jelly Babies!
Because this guy!
In case you don’t know, that is Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor (Doctor Who… British thing… If you don’t know what I’m talking about I don’t know how to help you. Google is your friend.) and the greatest lover of Jelly Babies to ever exist. So naturally, while I was working with the yarn I had to watch Old School Doctor Who… and then New School Doctor Who… Doctor Who… Yeah…
So that’s why writing didn’t get done. Jelly Babies. I’m trying to feel ashamed, but I’m really not.
