New yarn

Eager as I am to start a new project, with still four more buttonholes to go on my cardigan, I bought 8 skeins of Rowan 4ply cotton in 121 Ripple yesterday at De Afstap in Amsterdam. Rowan 4ply cotton 121 rippleOriginally I was going to get this yarn from my boyfriend for my birthday, but with al his online ordering skills and experience, he wasn’t able to a find store that sold it cheap and delivered on time. So he gave me books instead, Putin’s Russia by Anna Politkovskaya, Das Schloss by Franz Kafka and one more that I can’t remember right now.

The project I will be starting is Martha, from Rowan magazine 37. When I saw how thin the yarn was, I felt a little set back, because I figured that this project too was going to take me months, just like the one I’m finishing now. But then I just stopped thinking about it, and my problem never seemed to have existed.

Tomorrow the pictures of my finished first cardigan ever will appear right here on this blog, don’t miss it. I’m not sure whether I’ll be having a special party to celibrate this joyful occasion, but that it will be another great day is beyond doubt. Man do I love knitting!
