If I had never found Knitty and the Coffeeshop, well I wouldn't be here, online I mean ;) Until I had found Knitty, I was alone in my knitting, had no stash, and not a lot of friends that knit, or many cool, hip, free patterns. I had no clue what a fiber festival was and heck, what tink meant! Let alone a blog...I kept thinking everyone was talking about a bog??
It's been 3 years and I have friends all over the world, um..er..a stash, and more knowledge and ways to get even more and been to a fiber festival ;)
Amy Singer, is the founder of Knitty, (in case you didn't know) and when I saw her colorway next in line for the Color Commentary for Lorna's Laces I caved. I was trying to be good.
Color Commentary Series
Lorna's Laces Shepard Sport from Angelika's Yarn Store (excellent service and super fast shipping and they will have the bamboo silk blend in this colorway soon too..um..yikes!)
But seriously, these are my colors!!! I couldn't help it!
"Her inspiration was her office full of gorgeous old office equipment and furniture. Lorna's Laces worked with images of a charcoal desk, steel grey filing cabinets, a card catalog that was grey with the slightest hint of violet....and a light blue princess phone."
Many pictures were taken to try to show these colors!
Yum or what.. (I realize this colorway may not excite everyone, but hey, doesn't take much to make me happy ;)
I fear some socks may not be finished so I can knit with this ASAP!
Thank you Amy for Knitty, and for this colorway!
