“The Adventure Begins”

Late last week a much anticipated delivery arrived at my house. I knew it was on the way and I was kind of bursting at the seams waiting for it. And then one morning I opened my door and there it was, my first installment of the Legacy Yarn Club from Mountain Meadow Wool Mill.

img_5853Not wanting to ruin the surprise for those who were still waiting for their box to arrive, this was the only picture I’ve shared until now. Isn’t it beautiful, though? Almost too pretty to open… that “almost” is working pretty hard though…

goodie-burstAfter my nice, pristine photo I kind of tore into this one.

contentsAs promised, this package included 2 skeins of Mountain Meadow Tweed in Pumice and Russet, 2 lovely patterns, and — a surprise! — two delicious Dove Red Velvet Chocolates (eaten immediately after this photo). Everything about this package felt like proper down home luxury. That’s seriously my kind of thing.

Maybe the coolest aspect, however, is on the label.

tagCheck it out! My yarn came from the Little Ranch in Buffalo, WY. It’s not often that you get that sort of specific location information — it is so cool!

I’m thinking I may make both into hats. I’m really in a hat mood lately and I think these will be simple and beautiful. Plus, I’ve been in a bit of a rut using the same hat patterns over and over, so I’m kind of excited to try a new one — the one supplied with the package looks like a lovely basic pattern that’ll fit the bill perfectly.

It was my intention to get my yarn wound and on the needles over the weekend, but I was under the weather with a cold and didn’t get a ton done. Also, the idea of lugging out my winding equipment wasn’t super appealing in my state. Thankfully I’m feeling better today, so I’m aiming to get that yarn wound this afternoon or tomorrow morning. I really can’t wait to dig in!

I’ll be sure to report back asap on the yarn and share some WIP photos once I’m on my way, but in the mean time I’ll share the friendly reminder that you can still sign-up for the 3-shipment option any time to try out this very special club. I just got the first and I’m already looking forward to the next!

  1. I got mine too! The yarn is so wonderful and I, too, was impressed by knowing exactly the sheep it came from. OOOOOOH, and that red! I’m going to try to find a way to use the 2 skeins together. Any thoughts on that?

    • I saw one person going for striped mittens… you could easily stripe mitts or a hat or a cowl or shawlette. Lots of possibilities and I think striping would be great!
