This post contains an overwhelmingly amount of yarn adoption: proceed with caution!
Seriously though, I am sharing with you my yarn purchases from last week while I was in Cape Cod. On last Wednesday afternoon, we drove around sight seeing and I had in mind to visit one yarn store. To my surprise, I ended up in two yarn stores.
The first yarn store was Adventures in Knitting, a lovely store with friendly people. While I shopped, a knitting group or class was in process, oh how I wished I could sit and stay and talk the afternoon away. However, my husband was in the car waiting and I wanted to try and be 'quick'. As if!
I bought the Dr Who mini skein and a lovely skein of gray that I'm using in my current project that I will mention later on. Both yarns are from A Hundred Ravens. I love the twist, colors and the softness of the wool.
The second yarn store I visited was in Chatham, MA called A Great Yarn. The people were friendly and the yarn selection was delightful. I walk around back and forth in both stores looking, feeling the wools and trying to decide what I would like to purchase.
In this store, I chose Mrs Crosby Loves to Play in a lovely single ply wool, Satchel. I cannot wait to knit with this soft yarn.
I also splurged and bought another project bag (shore birds!!). The pouch was made by a J. Carey - sorry no web page. This pouch might be my travel pouch for when I grab and go and need a few essentials but not too many notions.
Over the weekend, I started a new knitting project, True Colors. Initially, I wanted to use the Dr. Who mini skein but that wasn't working out to my liking for this project. Can you believe I didn't have enough yarn in stash to 'go' with the Dr Who mini skein? Yes, I need to do more yarn shopping!
I chose instead another mini skein kit in stash - Party of Five by Sweet Georgia yarns. I am using the grey wool I bought in Cape Cod and a malabrigo wool from stash. I do love how they all go together nicely.
What are you working on these days?
