This weekend has been a productive weekend for knitting.
Once I finished the fury socks, I cast on another sock using “Strawberry Fields” which is on the coquette yarn base from Bumblebee Acres fiber farm.
The name of this colorway always makes me think of “Strawberry Fields Forever” by the Beatles.
The colors themselves together makes me think of something out of the 1970’s.
I had pulled out this colorway because I was wanting to work with one of the spring colored yarns I have in my stash.
The coquette yarn base has become one of my favorite yarn bases to knit with. It is a thicker sock yarn that is sturdy to work with, yet washes up very well. It makes the perfect winter sock.
This weekend is what I needed to relax and get in the frame of mind for my last week at my current job and starting my new job without missing a beat.
While where I am at, and what I am doing is not necessarily what I want to do forever, the income is a means to cover bills and help me get where I want to go.
There are some yarn stores here in the Portland Metro area I have been meaning to get to over the past few years, and now I will make a point to go visit them and buy more yarn. Yarn shopping, and knitting in general is definitely an expensive hobby. I wouldn’t trade it for a less expensive hobby though. It’s what I love doing and is worth the money.
