Missing: six skeins of Noro Silver Thaw. Purple, turquoise, and green. Very soft and slightly fuzzy. Has never been out of its bag, and is probably frightened. Was picked up by UPS on January 21 and hasn't been seen since. If found, please contact me. I miss it!
Yes, sadly the sweater's worth of Silver Thaw that I ordered weeks ago is missing in action.
Good news: Sue at Little Knits is wonderful. She's saved me more than once when I've failed to plan ahead (most notably with Icarus), and she's always willing to go the extra mile for a customer. She has determined that UPS picked up the package (she has a receipt), so she can file a claim.
Bad news: That was the last six skeins of the color I want.
Good news: There is more coming in soon and she will send it right out.
Bad news: This was to be my Lake Tahoe project, but will not arrive in time.
Good news: I get to pick a new project.
Bad news: I have two projects in the immediate queue, but neither one is the sort I want for a long car trip. Too complex.
Good news: I know lots of knitters!
I need something fairly simple, but not boring. I want a sweater, of course. I don't want to design it. I'd prefer a pullover. I have lots of dk and worsted weight yarn in sweater quantities. I'm in the middle of a couple of house projects that need to be finished before we leave, so I'm short on time for hunting for patterns. But I know you all have lists of great sweater patterns just waiting to be made, so I've decided to put myself in your most capable hands. Recommendations, anyone?
