Happy Labor Day!

Here's my date for the three-day weekend.


That would be Kidsilk Haze in color Blushes (583). Oh yeah, life is good. Don't be fooled by the godawful appearance of this color on the Rowan page--the color in my photo is pretty true. I had a terrible time trying to figure out what color to get, since the same color looks totally different on the Rowan site vs. Yarndex. Thank goodness for Yarn Expressions! They were going to order me whatever color I wanted--they have a color card--but it turned out it was love at second site when I looked through their stock again and saw this color.
I wish you all a fabulous holiday weekend--I hope you have as much fun as I do! It's supposed to be a big weekend, yarn-wise. I've heard it said that Labor Day is the start of knitting season? Most knitters I know have been knitting all summer, but for myself, I'm definitely feeling a renewed eagerness to knit. There's probably something to it, especially for folks with cooler climates and late-starting school years. I've heard something big is brewing at Yarny Goodness, but I don't know what, except that my yarn will be featured there soon. Stay tuned for that one. Also, Cherry Tree Hill is having a big Labor Day sale, which I would be all over if I hadn't just bought a ton of their yarn in New Hampshire. Have fun shopping, or just love the yarn you're with!
