On Valentine’s Day, I got yarn. It wasn’t a surprise because I got it for myself. But I did get exactly what I wanted and that’s always nice.
FYI, I’m an affiliate for Knit Picks. I’m an affiliate for other companies too, but Knit Picks is pretty much the only one that I push. That’s because its pretty much the only online company that gets my money. I buy from them and I feel very comfortable recommending their stuff to my readers. Which I do. Often. So why shouldn’t they pay me a commissions for stuff ya’ll buy because of me? And in any case, most of what they pay me in commissions I use to buy more stuff from Knit Picks. It all works out.
I trust the people from Knit Picks. The Feline Overlord does not. Thus there a mandatory safety inspection open receipt of new stuff.
We got the all clear signal from Her Overlord-ness. We can proceed.
In all honesty what I went online to order was a nice long cord to go with the needle set I got for Christmas. (I’d show you a pic of the needle set but I’m currently using tips from that set in at least four different projects. Yeah, I really do like that set. So here is a link instead.)
Turns out the cord was only $1.99. Huh. It seemed cruel to pester Knit Picks to make up an order for me for just $1.99.
So I looked around for something to add to my order. Just being a good person, ya know?
It wasn’t hard to find more stuff to order.
That Galileo yarn has interested me for a while. Its a sport weight, 50% merino and 50% bamboo. Its $4.99 for 131 yards (in 50g balls). And its shiny. I like shiny.
Turns out its also very, very soft to the touch. This is definitely an against-the-skin kind of yarn. I’m trying out the Firefly, Lunar, and Comfrey colorways. I’ll be sure to let you know how it works up.
I can, however, already confidently report that the box is too small for Cowardly Boy Cat to lay down in.
But that never stopped him before and its not stopping him now.
