I have something approaching an embarrassment of Wollmeise yarn. Claudia dyes up such stunning colors and there's always such a mad rush when it posts at The Loopy Ewe. I feel swept along in the tides of Oh-that's-lovely-I-got-some-too-limited-amounts etc etc..
I know better. The Wollmeise has a perfectly nice online wool shop in Germany. And at the rate I'm knitting it up (one skein every... 5 years or so?) I should be set for another 60 years or so. Yeah.
So this year, I need to figure out at least a couple of things to make with it. Two of the skeins are spoken for. I won't say which, of course, because that'd give it away to the final recipients (only one of whom is the Philosopher). But I need to go through my queue, figure out what works that will use up as much of each skein as I can, and just start knitting it.
You've figured out by now I bought more, didn't you? Two skeins of Twin (her Merino, Nylon base) this time:
Skein 1 is Im dunklen Wald and it does indeed look like a forest floor.
and Skein 2 is Amazones and it reminds me of parrots.
Hmmm, I see a call for a vote coming. Off to scheme!
I can only hope that it's easier for the staff at The Loopy Ewe to grade our Academy homework than it is for me to wrangle Blackboard. ...

It was 2 degrees when I got on the train this morning. I hadn't looked, assuming the temperature drop (back to -1F) was coming tonight. ...
