On My Needles


If this post in any way makes you buy some yarn or start a new project, then my work here is done.  I have been drooling over the Color Affliction shawl for about a week.  Okay, maybe more than a week.  I had a serious problem.  I wanted to make the shawl but did not have any yarn in my gigantic stash.  I know!  The horror!


Really and truly I did not want to buy more yarn.  I was faced with a serious problem. So I meditated about it and my solution was simple.  I needed to go yarn shopping.....again.


Lucky for me, I have been seeing many blogger buddies knitting with Quince and Co yarn. So that is where I started to look and that is where I purchased my yarn.  I have to say they were very speedy in processing and posting my order!  Makes me want to buy from them again.


My yarn arrived on Friday and I immediately casted on the project.......I've named the shawl "destiny".  Because it was meant to be.  (on a side note remember in Back to the Future when McFly says "Lorraine, my density has bought me to you."???? great movie moment)

  1. Pretty, pretty, pretty!
    I love the customer service that Quince gives and their yarns are top notch!
    Yes, I remember the line from Back to the Future and destiny is a perfect name for your shawl.

  8. Three things.

    1. I had to add that shawl to my queue. You guys are killing me, with all the good knitting ideas…
    2. I do remember that line. I don't know what that says about me.
    3. Isn't Quince & Co lovely? I ordered some a week or two ago & it arrived so quickly. (Although I'm not terribly far away so it's not *so* surprising that it didn't take long.) I can't wait to work with it. (I'm actually making something for myself with it!!)

  9. I love your colors. I am finishing up my cowl (after ripping out several rows!) with Quince yarn and love it. We love Back to the Future, too....although I could have done without the second one in the series :)

  17. your colors are just luscious!!! (I was out a bunch yesterday and missed your post---caught the shawl on yarnalong this morning and needed to see the yarn.....had to giggle that you, too, had to buy yarn for this. And I thought I was gaining on my stash since I didn't have anything in mine that was right for this....!!!!!!!!) so so so so pretty!
