guess what today is?



... why, it's the first day of project spectrum! i did not participate last year, because ... i'm a really bad joiner. often, i think, i just join up so i can have the pretty buttons.



but, obviously, it was in the cards for me today, as today was nothing but gray and white! it snowed ... not much, but still, it snowed ! this is the view from my sewing room. i spent the day not doing anything that i should had, and instead fiddled around with knitting and playing on the net.

not too long ago, on the net, i picked up these two lovely hanks of the merino/tencel fingering yarn of the yarn pirate. i had first fallen for the incredible blood orange, and then i saw the quicksilver ....

they're both absolutely beautiful, though the quicksilver fits the bill for the first two months of project spectrum. i have swatched the quicksilver ... though i still have lots of unfinished knitting on the needles.

Both hanks are beautiful, but you're right - quicksilver fits the P.S. theme perfectly! I'm glad we get two months for ecah color scheme this time around too. That should be long enough to finish some socks!

Quick slilver is gorgeous! Will they be socks? Or something lace?

Yay! I love Project Spectrum, and I'm playing for the second time this year.

We got snow too, until the sun came up. I should post pictures.

I have some Yarn Pirate to use and I can't wait. Love the colors you have there. I look forward to see what you do up with it.
