My fingers just clicked home an order of 9 skeins Madelinetosh Chunky. Ooops! Well, I have thought about it for ONE WHOLE DAY so it’s not all an impulse.
It began yesterday when I started thinking about knitting a cardigan or sweater or something and happened to find Silver Belle/Romy from Debbie Bliss. Love at first sight! Even if I was quite tired (I will have to blame that whole power outage morning escapade where I had to wash, dress and make myself ready in candle light…) I’ve concluded that I really WAS tired, because I didn’t see the free PDF pattern link and bought the book from Amazon. Oh, well!
I’ve now spent a whole day thinking about what yarn to use and finally decided that I’m too much in love with Thunderstorm from Madelinetosh to feel okay knitting with something else. I’ve never tried Chunky though, so some changes at least.
After some searches I found Eat.Sleep.Knit where they actually had enough Thunderstorm Chunky in stock and took it as a sign. I mean, it’s SOOO OBVIOUS. A yarn shop with cats in their logo, my selected yarn in stock and ships to Sweden = BUY IT!
I’m sooo excited! I wish I could start tomorrow. Perhaps I can start to decipher the pattern or something…
The pictures are from the Liliaceae shawl by Angelika Luidl that I did (in Thunderstorm). Look at that wonderful color!0
