Happy Tuesday! On Sunday, my LYS closed. I'm bummed for many reasons but the biggest one is that I will no longer have a place to just go and knit during the days when the boys are driving me nuts and Husband is home. But I'm also going to miss having a yarn store so close.
At any rate, some yarn came home...and some other items...
Yarn: Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd's Worsted Wool
Weight/Yardage: Worsted/250 yds (each)
Colorway(s): Green (top), Royal Blue (middle), and Mint (bottom)
No ideas. They just requested a trip home. Apparently I'm just feeding the stash.
Yarn: Cascade Ultra Pima
Weight/Yardage: DK/220 yds (each)
Colorway(s): Mint (top) and Spearmint (bottom)
Again, no specific use...but I imagine they'd make some really nice facecloths :)
Yarn: Cascade 128 Superwash
Weight/Yardage: Bulky/128 yds
For some reason, I keep thinking about a hat out of this yarn. I've been buying all the bulky lately, and aside from hats, I've really no use for it. ::sigh::
Yarn: Cascade Venezia Worsted
Weight/Yardage: Worsted/218 yds
Colorway: Pure Diamond
I think this wants to grow up into something like 198 yds of Heaven or something similar. We'll see, however :)
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash Effects
Weight/Yardage: Worsted/220 yds
Colorway: 2 (which is a grey & white deal)
No plans. Just feeding the stash...
Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Encore
Weight/Yardage: Worsted/200 yds
Colorway(s): 1014 (top) and Christmas Green (bottom)
The green is slated for Stormageddon's baby blanket (which I still need to design and, you know, start!). Any leftover green will probably be paired with the yellow to make some Green Bay Packers-esque hats. We're from Wisconsin and even though we don't give a rip about football, many of our friends and family do.....
I also picked up some needles:
There are two US #1 long circulars (40", I believe), two 16" circulars (US #8 and US #4), and two sets of DPNs in US #11 and US #10, all from Knitters' Pride. In addition to that, I bought a little bag of cedar blocks to stick in my bins. I also picked up the physical copy of Walk Now, which has been in my queue for awhile...
But wait, that's not all!
I fell into Corgi Hill Farm last week and wound up ordering a few balls of fluff. They arrived on Friday and I finally photographed them yesterday :)
Weight: approx 4 oz
Fiber Content: 60% Polwarth wool & 40% Tussah silk
Colorway: Hoar Frost
Weight: approx 4 oz
Fiber Content: 60% BFL wool & 40% Bombyx silk
Colorway: Forest Test
I hope you're having a lovely Tuesday. It's been rainy and icky around here, again...so some of my photos aren't that great (they're not that great usually but sometimes I surprise myself). So, happy Tuesday :)
