From Susan — The Theater of Seasons that is Minnesota

Did I mention it is the theater of the absurd??

October in Minnesota by you.
October Morning in Minnesota

Jeesh.

More on the Yarn Harlot’s Lace Cowl

JOY by you.

GinkgoKnits asked about the yarn I used.  I would have mentioned the details but I was too lazy to go dig it out!  It is from Just Our Yarns and is called Myne.  It is micro-thin 100% cashmere (I held it double to make the cowl).  Sally is the one who originally bought it so I was 100% sure she would like the color :) .  On their site, they warn that each color is unique, so purchase all you will need because the color varies, even within the same lot.  Sally thought they said, “Buy all of it you can get your hands on.”  ;)  She ended up with so much, she gave me several skeins.  Enough to make many cowls, or a shawl or…you get the idea!

  1. Your October morning looks a lot like mine did this morning in Colorado! Yesterday it was 75… :) Such an exciting season.

  2. Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my question! I’ve never heard of Just Our Yarns and it’s always great to learn of a new source (especially one with cashmere).

  3. And that is why I won’t move to Minneapolis! Snow already. Gah!

  4. Snow in October – my fault, because we scheduled the pontoon trailer for yesterday. Yup, the drive across the lake was CHILLY! But, it does keep the riffraff (sp?) out, right?

  5. Well. At least it looks pretty there on the deck!

  6. We’ve already had snow three times now, and more than a dusting. It’s going to be a crazy winter!

  7. . . .and I was complaining about snow flurries here in northern Illinois–it was only for a few minutes and didn’t stick.

  8. Snow is pretty (says a Californian who has never lived in snow country).
