I made the mistake of escaping to Rosies Saturday while my bathroom was being decimated by my landlord. Wendy was working, and besides being a yarn slut, she's a pusher too.
I wandered home with a bright turquoise skein of Shokay Yak, so new to the store I opened the plastic bag. Also a skein of Autumnhouse tweed that had been hiding from me someplace in the store. I think it's pretty, but some comments about the white noils looking like bugs cropped up. Both of these will become hats, which I seem to have few of for a knitter.
I'm becoming a fan of Autumnhouse Farms, I'm tempted to order some roving from them soon. I hope more sock yarn doesn't sneak in my shopping cart.
I snagged some thick and thin 'Divine' yarn on clearance because I like the colors. I think it's going to become a Calometery, because I'm a big fat copy cat.
I also grabbed the new 'Favorite Socks' book from Interweave. I hear it's %90 reprints from the magazine. Since I haven't been a subscriber, most of the patterns are 'new to me' so that wasn't an issue. I do like the spiral bound format of the book, which may make it a worthwhile purchase for knitters who have the past issues. My only wish is that the book had more patterns shown or designed for the handpainted sock yarns.
