The thing I like about monthly yarn clubs is that you pay up front, all at once (which can be kind of painful) but then you get yarn monthly after that without paying anything :)

My last 3IG shipment arrived not that long before the wedding so I didn’t get a chance to share it.

Once again, the packaging was lovely.

And the colorway is gorgeous. I have much love for it. It is my favorite so far, I think. This September colorway is called Baltic Sea and it is on Adorn Sock, a wool/nylon fingering weight sock yarn.  The “extra” in this month’s package was a free download pattern from Stich Diva. I haven’t chosen my pattern yet but I have a few in mind.

However, instead of socks, I thought this yarn would be just perfect for something else – the Lace Ribbon Scarf.  I cast on for this scarf while in Florida for my friend Nicole’s wedding and got a lot of knitting done on the flight home!  It’s a really good pattern for mindless knitting, since it’s easy to remember.

Isn’t it lovely?  I this this was a fantastic choice for the yarn – it would have made beautiful socks, but this scarf will be a great addition to my winter wardrobe.

Also, the October shipment came today!
