More color than you've seen on this blog in awhile!
I can't seem to put the embroidery away....I even bought a couple new colors to add to the box. Usually, I'm quite happy to just look at the colors in the box....but I've actually been stitching on the paisley sampler (a Dropcloth sampler design). If I knew what it was going to turn into when completed, I might have more incentive to finish. Right now I'm just enjoying the journey.
The orphan ball of sock yarn has been kicking around in the stash so long that the ball band totally faded. It's a Lorna's Lace sock weight---bought shortly after Lorna Miser started her company in the late 80s. It was beautiful. It was quite unique for its day. I had to have it. And it was on sale (reason there was only one!)
I came across this pattern...and one skein should make the pair. It was worth the 25-year wait.
A Perfect Red rounds out my 'colorful' week. The book blurb sums it up well: 'A delightful, rollicking history. A fun read, well supported by extensive research...'
