Do you remember the swatch I knit from the Wollmeise samples? I didn’t wind up using any of those colors for Arwen, but I really loved the yarn. And when I went back and looked at the site again, I realized I should have requested a sample of Rittersporn (that means delphinium, or possibly larkspur – or are those the same thing? Mom would know. Sigh.), and then I thought ooo, Frosch (frog) would be nice, and I realized that if I ordered more samples I’d have a hard time deciding. So I just asked her to send me one of each. And she did! And these are they! 36 test-skeins of yarn!
Yes, I feel a bit like Imelda Marcos, “oh just buy them all,” but at 50 cents each I probably won’t be driving my country to destitution.
Happy Dance, Happy Dance! Arwen may have to take a break, and Ignatz’s sweater will look just fine with only one sleeve, right?
