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.
How do you pick out your yarns?
