gray mail day

Today was a really gray day here in Iowa. The sky just never stopped being cloudy, for even a moment. At least the birds are back -- we've seen red-breasted finches, robins, wrens, and even a pair of young cardinals at our feeder. It's nice to have some sign of spring, or at least the sounds of birds again, even if it still looks gloomy outside.

The mailman came this afternoon bearing goodies -- yarn and fiber club! Today's haul included a hank of Madelinetosh Prairie, in Calligraphy, which is the most lovely mix of rose, taupe, and ivory.

Three hanks of Zen Yarn Garden's Serenity Worsted, sent by Roxanne so I can do some swatching for the TNNA booth before the beginning of May. I don't know if these are new colors, but, if they are, wow!

And of course, Hello Yarn Fiber Club! This month the colorway is called Tideline, and is on Romney fiber. I love spinning Romney into singles, so that's likely where this will go -- skinny lightweight singles for knitting something airy and wispy. I love the name and the colors.
