OUT OF THE BROWN RUT

I have an ironic view of life, so it was no surprise to me that the additional Satakieli colors I had ordered -- with the full intention of having them available at the Madrona retreat -- arrived the Monday after the retreat was over. Obviously, I'm still getting used to predicting how long it will take for these yarns to arrive from Finland. Two of those colors are browns -- call them milk chocolate and dark chocolate -- I'd ordered for one particular knitting friend. When she showed up at my booth in search of them, and I had to let her know that those colors hadn't come in yet, she declared, "That's it! I'm getting out of my brown rut!" And she proceeded to buy some vibrant pinks, reds, and greens.

If you're curious, the new-to-Two-Swans colors of Satakieli are Orchid, Milk Chocolate, and Dark Chocolate.

And, hot off the presses: Rowan 41 is here! It contains several patterns for that yarn I can never resist, Kidsilk Haze (I show only two of the several on the Two Swans site). I can already feel the start-itis kicking in, although I'm committed to finishing a couple of other projects first. Really.
