Stash Enhancement via Pa.
Straight back from our wonderful weekend at Chez K, I decided to celebrate President's Day by engaging in some commerce. I bought a digital camera, so I could show you my stash enhancement from Yarnings. What a great shop. Liz and I snuck out between big pretzels and double decker cupcake creations to get a fix.
I mostly took advantage of the sock yarn, since my LKS doesn't want to support the habit. I came home with: Fotissima Socka from Schoeller Stahl; two orange balls of Crazy; and two skeins of KPPPM in greens. Now this is my first Koigu purchase. Actually, it's the first time I've even seen the yarn in person. I really didn't have a choice -- I had to bring it home. While I was at it with the sock yarn, I threw in some 0s dpn just for fun.
I also bought some Dune by Trendsetter. I plan on wiping up a scarf to accompany my mom's shell that is so near completion I almost feel like putting it away to start something else. But wait ... I must finish by the closing cermonies!
Finally, thank you to Liz and family for a delightful time. This blog is great, but nothing replaces friends breaking Billy Bread.
