When last I left you in this series, we had started to receive the yarn for sample knitting and I was mulling over color names. Well, I’ve been so busy I haven’t really mulled. But Susan said that I could show you pictures of colors so long as I didn’t give away which yarn it is. So if you have any brilliant ideas, let me know! Some of these are lab dips, meaning that they’re the right colors, although the might not be on the correct yarn base. So you shouldn’t assume that it’s one kind of yarn! It might very well be another!
Mystery Yarn A
Mystery Yarn B (Looking for super summery names)
Mystery Yarn C (Food names – spices and ingredients rather than things like Marshmallow Fluff)
I have wrapped up assigning sample knits (I think. I got an email today and I might look for a couple more knitters) and almost all the sample knitter yarn is out for delivery. One yarn is still on its way from the manufacturer (what, you didn’t think I was spinning it in my living room, did you?)
I’m going to hand deliver some yarn to one of our regular sample knitters, Krysta. We meet at the Frozen Yogurt place in the next town over because it’s super convenient for her to stop there on her way home. Certainly we don’t sit and chat and eat frozen yogurt. But that would be a business expense, right? Tomorrow I might be delivering some yarn to another sample knitter. We might be planning on sewing a photo shoot apron and making dryer balls while we’re there. That’s all going down on my time sheet because I’ll be taking photos and sharing the progress at some point in time. Oh, and we’ll be having waffles for lunch and homemade pizza for supper. I have SUCH a hard job, right?
PS – A reminder that tomorrow is the last day to buy your blanket! We cannot extend because the mill MUST have our order so we can get the blankets to everyone in time for Christmas giving.
PPS – If you’ve pre-ordered The Shepherd and The Shearer, I sent you an email ages ago asking for your sizing. I’ll follow up with those who haven’t given it to me, but I asked for a deadline of September 2nd. So check your old emails for that so I have less people to email, please! (If you’re still waiting to buy, no worries, I’ll get your sizing info after you purchase.)
