I know I said I wouldn’t purchase any more #yarn but……

Especially love the top right color combo. I always love how variegated/ hand-painted skeins look but I’m afraid how they’ll look when they knit up.

I’ve never had an issue with the look knit up. I say go for it!

I feel the same way - I love how they look in skeins but often feel disappointed by variegation and pooling. But these are really beautiful.

I’m doing a hat with a variegated yarn right now. I split the yarn into two balls and am alternating between the two in one-row stripes. It’s giving the hat a subtle stripe without much pooling, and I’m really happy with it!

Day 1: Father discovers bins with sensors that trigger when he walks by, laughs every time.
Day 2: Dad begins greeting bins as if they were loyal, eager dogs.
Day 3: Dad creates infinitely triggering bin cycle, laughs ass off.

As they say in Texas, and by they I mean I, it’s hotter than a sort-of hot thing but not as hot as a very hot thing and sometimes that middle-of-the-road hot is what Texas hot weather is like.

Haha, yeah, the low nineties is pretty cool for a Texas summer. But now we’re in the upper nineties, weather that separates the people who bitch about the heat from the people who really bitch about the heat.
P.S. Some friends just texted me to see if I wanted to join them at the free symphony in the park, and I wrote back, “I already went outside once today, but thank you!”
