Yesterday Arne and Carlos did an episode about their new line of Lofoten sock yarn. It's so pretty.
Yesterday afternoon I found this in my mailbox.
Last week they had briefly mentioned the yarn and showed it off a bit so I went looking for it and it was nowhere to be found here in the US. Later I found one vendor on Etsy who was selling the whole line for $128 with free shipping which in the world of sock yarn is practically giving it away. I can't tell you how happy this makes me. I figure it's life insurance.
I saw a film recently where when Death came to get an ailing grandma she refused to go with him until the mitten she was knitting was finished. He patiently waited for her to cast off. Since we've all had our mortality tested in the past few weeks over the loss of our dear blogger friend I figure now I can't won't be going anywhere until those eight pair are done. He'll just have to wait until at least Christmas 2022. That's one pair for everyone.
Speaking of Christmas, I've got one more pair finished for the 2021 gift box. Those dreaded Felicis are a done deal thank goodness.
I've got eight pair in the gift box now but I'm not seeing any man socks. I've got a pair on the needles right now that will give me one. I need three more and then I can start the 2022 Lofoten Christmas knitting....squeeeee!
