It’s fun to have a sister who goes off to NYC and comes back with knitterly treats. (I checked, she did get some for herself, too). And some special Lindors…


Now my problem is what to do with 500 yards of DK-weight emerald green silk…But as problems go, I would say that’s a pretty awesome one to have. (That’s Alchemy silk right there. Sis did wisely say that she rescued it from a sale bin – a move of which I heartily approve.)

The grading is almost done (at this point, agonizingly slow this close to the finish, but it’s so close), the book review books are starting to stack up, and I am chomping at the bit to start some sweater knitting, shawl knitting, sock knitting…all kinds of knitting. The Knitter’s Frolic this weekend could be dangerous.

I hope you’ve got some knitterly treats of your own close by! Happy Wednesday.


  1. Those Lindor balls come in Raspberry Dark Chocolate? HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS?

    I think I’m headed to the Knitter’s Frolic too! I’m excited; I’ve never been to one.

    Soo pretty!!

    Have fun at the frolic, apparently the universe was so determined that I not get to it, that I had to move to New Brunswick…

  3. Very nice sisterly gift! I’m sure you’ll think of something to do with that lovely yarn.

  4. That silk looks absolutely scrumptious! A good problem to have, indeed.

  5. Chocolates and Alchemy Silk? What an awesome sister!!

  6. Cowl! Swallowtail Shawl! Gift for me!

    That yarn could be many things.

  7. Would your parents like to adopt me?

  8. That emerald yarn is beautiful. It was a good move saving it from the sale bin!!

    I did recently receive some knitterly treats of my own! I bought some destash yarn from a couple of Ravelers. It’s great finally being able to try some American yarns that would cost me a fortune to get into the country!! :)

    Have fun at the Knitter’s Frolic.. I’m not sure what it is? A knitting retreat?

  9. So pretty!! The emerald is gorgeous!!

  10. Thats a beautiful colour yarn, what a nice sister!

  11. 500 yards should be enough to make a nice tank. Maybe there is a sleeveless top on that would be worthy of such beautiful yarn.

  12. Sis has good taste! Yay sis!!! Lucky you.

  13. This yarn is absolutely gorgeous!

  14. I agree – it’s a good problem to have :-)
    How about a BIG lace shawl – Shetland triangle looks good in thicker yarns.
