When the going gets tough...

The tough buy yarn... Yup, works everytime *wink wink*.

Mama Blue is the most delightful seller, and her product is so fabulous. I custom ordered this trio and once she notified me they were ready, they were in my grubby little hands within two days. Then I see she's knitting some beautiful socks, and now I think I will have have to have some of her Troika sportweight. Do you hear the call of the Siren? Did you peek over at those socks? Something about a picot edge just tickles me.

Thank you for the kind support and empathy on my last post - I am back knitting my Loksins (soooo close to having a pair) - but I am continuing the stand off with the project that was frustrating me. We are circling one another, sizing each other up right now. Who will win the next round? I'll keep you posted.

That yarn is so gorgeous. I've been looking at Mama Blue's shop lately--inspired by you to experience the yarny goodness. I'll have to wait another few months (still have that camera challenge with my husband), but after that, I'm all about some lovely Mama Blue!
