Fiber Inspiration

I ventured to my LYS last Saturday looking for some inspiration for something exciting we Nuhn girls are working on, but more to come on that later!

Usually when I shop for yarn I have one project in mind, this time I had multiple projects in mind and was letting the yarn be my inspiration. 

I first caught a glimpse of Rowan Creative Focus in Magenta and Teal. I put it down at least 4 times but I loved the colours so much I couldn’t leave it behind.

 

Then I came across Berroco Blackstone Tweed in Clover Honey. I’m a sucker for tweed!  

 

I’m a very tactile shopper so when I felt this skien I knew I had to have it. It’s Cascade Highland Duo,  70% undyed baby alpaca 30% undyed merino. I can’t wait to knit something with it. 

My LYS has a room they call the closet and one week a month she opens the door and has all the sale yarn in there. But once the week is over you can’t access it until the next month. So I was lucky that day it was open. I found some Dove by Tahki Yarns which is also so soft, and on sale for half price. Are you feeling the theme of this post that “I couldn’t resist it!” I cast on a Flax sweater and it’s like a soft cloud in my hands. 

   

And last but not least Harmony was on sale for half price, I grabbed up 4 skiens and will be waiting patiently for the closet to open next month to buy some more. 

    

I was very happy with my finds, they even gave me a nice Estelle reusable shopping bag!  

How do you pick out your yarns?
