As a girl I LOVED rainbows. And it was cute and appropriate for a little girl to like rainbows. As I moved into my teen years it was a little odd to love rainbows but it never really bothered me what other people thought so I wore them on my toes, ears, around my neck and on many of my articles of clothing. At 27, ahem...I mean, well, anyway....I can't just wear rainbows around town without people staring at me, then my children, then back at me....So, to avoid giving my boys a complex....I've almost completely liquidated my collection of rainbow possessions(that is, until Heavenly Father blesses our family with a little girl, and in that case, this discussion will be completely null and void).
However, last year while working at JoAnn Fabric and Crafts I was walking past the yarn aisle and spotted this GEM of a yarn. It is called Serenity Garden Yarn from the Deborah Norville collection of Premier Yarns. The name of the color is called GEMS and I simply had to have a skein or two for a later project. Fast Forward to now. I've completed my semi-acceptable rainbow socks for home use and possibly snow boot use and I might just be in heaven. These babies can get my feet warm lickety split! Of course, now that I live in El Paso, my feet don't get cold all that often...
But I digress....I know you are dying to see a picture of them.
For my next project, I think I'm going to do some quilting....stay tuned :)
