A very French "déjà vu"...

It's been a long time since I purchased some yarn. I got it last night! And even though it is not a new yarn to me and the pattern I will be knitting with it is not new either, don't ask me where all the excitement is coming from!

Here is Gloss in Woodland Sage for my Thermal II ;-) Did I say "déjà vu"?

I also bought KnitPicks Harmony Wood circulars needles in 3 sizes and a 24" cable. I will be trying them tonight! From what I heard, I will love them! Also a row counter (no more pieces of paper on the coffee table) and a tape measure (much easier to carry everywhere)! It will be fun!


Hope you are all having a great week so far!

I look forward to hear about those needles.

Je peux pas croire que j'ai écrit en anglais... Seigneur! Je dois devenir "bilingue" tout d'un coup!
Bref, hâte que tu me dises pour ces aiguilles, car je pensais m'acheter le kit interchangeable, mais en métal, mais j'hésite.
Ciao Maryse!

wow, a second thermal--I am really impressed, I'm almost finished my own thermal but don't think I could make a second one for several years, at least ;)

please post about those needles as you use them! I always hear good things about them too and am curious for another opinion.

that must have been such a treat to come home and find your order! I loved knitting my thermal, but I regret my colour choice- I wish I had gone with the woodland sage! Yours is going to be awesome.

I can't do the row counters, I forget and then am back to counting everything. I just use those little brass safety pins and place them every inch or every 10 rows. The thermal should look so cute in that green.

What a lovely package you received! Can't wait to hear what you think about the interchangeable Harmonys. I have fixed length ones that I love but have hesitated on purchasing the set of interchangeables because I haven't heard much feedback. I had never thought to just buy a couple to try, rather than the whole set! You are so clever :)

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
