During the local Shop Hop last week, I noticed this Opal colorway. I returned to the LYS this morning and picked up two skeins. Orange is his favorite color, and I'm hoping that it's not too wild for him. Again it's a Rainforest colorway, the animal is some sort of a baboon. I probably won't even mention that, however. ;)
I think it's beautiful! I'm going to start a sock for him, and when I have the 9" leg complete, have him try it on and give his blessing or his thumbs down. He's retired....he can be wild and live a little! lol
If he is not pleased, I'll frog and reknit a pair for myself and return the 2nd skein to my LYS.
I am anxiously awaiting news on my new spinning wheel. Sadly.....nothing yet. I'll give them another week, and then give them a call. It was supposed to be shipped last week, so I'm on pins and needles!
I played around with my car again today, and managed to upload a photo of BG1 onto my console screen. I'm looking forward to the first time he's in the back seat and notices his smiley face on my car's instrument panel. I think he'll approve! :)
Catch ya later.... Happy knitting, spinning, grand snuggling, puppy petting, or whatever brings you joy!
