This weatherpixie is meant to show the weather for Dubrovnik (which is roughly where I am heading off to for my hols next Thursday). At the moment it seems appropriate that the yarn that I have chosen for my additional holiday knitting is this one:
Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in the nearly solid colourway Sunshine. Let's hope that this remains an appropriate match - I certainly don't want to escape rainy Birmingham for an equally rainy Croatia - come on weather gods... smile for me!
I ordered the yarn from this website on Wednesday (around lunchtime I think) it arrived yesterday morning at about 9:00am - how's that for service? Most impressive I reckon :)
The yarn is destined to become the Lombard Street Socks from Magknits. I seem to have gone a bit cabling crazy since I started the Falling in Love Socks.... Incidentally I intend to finish the Falling in Love socks before I start the next pair, but it's surely better to take too much yarn on holiday than not enough?
