Merry Knitting Day/s

If you're a knitter . . . happy holidays!

What's the holiday?  Prime Knitting Time.

Winter makes knitting seem as natural as breathing.  Long evenings.  Cold weather.  Perhaps a bit of free time as the presents have been found or finished, wrapped, and given.  (Okay, okay, my tree is still up, but so!)

For such an occasion, I broke out some yarn I have been saving for quite some time and just have to tell you about. 

Sinsation by Plymouth Yarn

This is a rayon/wool blend.  It is the softest yarn I have ever felt, and it has a sheen that makes whatever you make look like expensive, vintage velvet.  I'm very tactile, and how a yarn feels in the hand is important to me.  This yarn feels amazing.  

At approximately $12/skein (38 yards), it is expensive, but two skeins will make you a lovely scarf or bag . . . just enough to add a look and feel of luxury.  So worth it.

I recommend treating yourself.



Your yarn sounds yummy. Love that last comic. Blessings!

I wish I was a knitter. It sounds so cozy and relaxing. But I'm allergic to wool, so maybe not such a good idea!
