Acquisition

 A yarny package in the mail is the perfect pick me up after everything that went on last week.

Last year, and it has almost been a year now, I received the most wonderful birthday gift from Monika. A gift certificate for the Wandering Cat Yarn’s etsy shop. *Thank you Monika* I didn’t want to make a spontaneous purchase with no project in mind so I held onto the gift certificate and kept my eye on the Wandering Cat’s shop updates waiting for THE yarn to pop up.

If you read Monika’s blog you know she uses Wandering Cat Yarns in a lot of her projects so there are always tons of colourways been thrown at me.

A few weeks ago she flashed a new acquisition and I knew immediately it needed to be mine.

I contacted Rhonda and in a matter of days she custom dyed me a skein of Alley Cat BFL in the English Toffee colourway and had it on route. Now that’s customer service!

Here is my lovely just waiting to be knit!

Monika has already made her skein into a pair of beautiful Hex socks.

I have just the pattern in mind for mine and once the Business Casual KAL is over I’ll be casting on!

Do you have an acquisition’s just waiting to be knit up?

  1. That color is fabulous! As are Monika’s Hex socks.

    My acquisition would be a skein of sKnitches Syncopation in MIlitia. I have been waiting for years to get my hands on that colorway. That and my Sundara, but I covet those so I have no plans for them yet! :)

  2. Oh yippy! I’m wearing my Hex socks right now! I’m working on a new pair with Cookie’s Lateral pattern. Looks wonderful!

  3. Lovely nice plump skein o’ yarn Irish Girl ! I can’t wait to see what it becomes.

    Oh yeah, I sure have acquisitions to knit.. but then a series of distractions too. :) I love to come visit here, always so fresh , bursting with productivity and loveliness. xx

  4. The yarn is beautiful and yes I do have quite a few acquisitions waiting for me to work on them. But alas I have requested items to make before hand.

  5. Ooh! New yarn! Very pretty! (And for some reason, when I saw “alley cat” the first thing I thought of was Phoebe’s Smelly Cat song. :D )
