Today I am starting a whirlwind five day trip, so the advent calendar posts the next few days may be a little on the short side. The brevity is not a reflection of my excitement, but rather due to pure time crunch and distraction with non-crafty things. Before I take off, though, let’s look at day 6 of Craftvent.
Sweet! It’s a little Manos del Uruguay in their Allegria base. True story – my very first “luxury” yarn purchase was the Manos silk blend, and I was forever hooked. It is even still in my stash because I can’t bear the thought of using it all up. I realize this is silly because I can just buy more, but I still feel like I need the perfect pattern for it.
Craftvent provided a black colorway. Luckily, it’s a small amount because knitting with black yarn doesn’t pair well with also going blind. We’ll just pretend any mistakes I make in that section because I can’t see are intentional design elements.
