May Day May Day

May has rolled in with perfect weather, warm and sunny and even a good breeze. Birthdays and Mother's Day, this month is perfect for picnicking...and knitting of course.

Packages are starting to arrive With the third installment of the Stellar Sock Club.
This means i can now show you:


When I lived in NH and babysat for a young lawyer, he would spin tales of fancy, and teach his kids (and me) about the stars and galaxies. I can still find Andromeda in my sky (no streetlights have made this much easier). It is fuzzy, there when you don't look at it. Vanishing when you gaze at it directly. Andromeda is mysterious.

Hubble has made it even more so. The more we see, the more we know, the more we discover that we know nothing.

Jennifer has captured amazing colours in the Andromeda Colourway this month. This skein is deeply saturated in colour. I LOVE IT.

This month's sock is a little more traditional in its construction. BUT it is cabled. Yum! Lovely cabled goodness. You need a good yarn to make those cables look crisp and not flat. Thank you Jennifer!

The last 3 months have been so much fun. If you missed out on the club, Jennifer is doing a Summer Stellar SOTM.

3 months, 3 Stellar Packages.
