Perhaps the second part of nesting, for me, has been picking up lovely yarns and fibers to surround me. I'm under the delusion that, during the weeks I'm home, not working, I'll have time to knit.
Knit Happens had an amazing sale a couple of weeks ago, with all of their yarn discounted, many by more than 50%! This brightened my doorstep last week:
Koigu Kersti for a top; colors are richer reds than pictured
Rowan Calmer; more baby knits?
Alchemy Bamboo for... a baby knit if I'm strong, something for me if I'm not
Artyarns Royal Silk to combine with 2 skeins I received from a friend,
and Supermerino for socks
Lorna's Laces Sheperd Sport for socks
Many (all?) of these yarns fall into the luxury category that I couldn't justify in the past; but at more than half off, how could I resist? I want to dive in and start new projects left and right; but I'm ever aware of my WIP count and have some projects to finish up first. More soon!
