So, I've bought a little bit of blue yarn lately. It wasn't intentional, it just kind of, happened.

Big pile of blue yarn

It started in April, with Sundara's Year In Color - April. I loved the charcoal over blue lagoon sock yarn. Loved. It. Still do, so even though it's a little costly to buy directly from Sundara with Canadian shipping, I bought 2 skeins of the sock yarn and promptly forgot about it, since shipping wasn't going to happen until June.

So the email came from Sundara that the April YIC had shipped, then, my Zen Yarn Garden Harmony Semi-solid club shipped and this arrived.

I opened the box, said WOW! This is pretty! Wait a minute, I think this is very similar to what I bought from Sundara. Doesn't matter, love it, squeeze it, horde it. Then, I decided that I wanted to make a Shawl That Jazz while on vacation this summer. After looking at many different yarn options, I decided on using Twisted from Blue Moon Fiber Arts in the In The Navy colourway. And it was close to my mom's birthday, she was loving the My Blue Heaven that was the January RSC yarn, so I bought her a skein of lightweight (her first STR!) and ahem*askeinofmediumweightformyself*ahem

So that's my little buying spree for now. Come September, the baby knitting begins because my brother and his wife are having their first baby in January! It's very exciting. I just have to decide what I want to do. For starters, I'm leaning towards this. But what colours?

I love all those shades of blue! A while ago, I wished for some more blue socks, and without realizing it, I now have 7 pairs! I've also been on a blue streak lately, I think the last few posts on my blog were all blue!
