yesterday was stormy, icy even. But Mom and I braved the nasty weather, and headed off to Halcyon Yarn in Bath. We got there around 11, and pulled into an empty parking lot! We were horrified, thinking that perhaps heaven was closed for the day! But no, we were just the only people so desperate for fiber that we would brave the weather. By the time we left a couple of hours later, there were more people out. We headed over to Mae’s Bakehouse for lunch, pulled into the parking area – same thing – no cars! But we knew what it meant this time, and so were pleased to find it open, warm, with some delicious hot soup on the menu.
By the time we finished lunch, the ice was gone, it was just foggy and rainy for the ride home.
So, what did I get?
4 cones of their gemstone silk for necklaces
one skein of Heritage sock yarn in soft blues
one toe up sock pattern
one Elizabeth Zimmerman surprise jacket pattern.
And it occurs to me that joining the sock Kal over at KnittingSarah was not supposed to mean that I buy lots more sock yarn, but after investigating my stash it just had to be done. 🙂 The KAL will help keep me from just adding them to the bins in the closet. 🙂
My Webs order arrived this week as well, and oh my, I LOVE the yarns I bought. As soon as the camera and I are speaking to each other again, I will share. But let it be said, I wound 4 balls of sock yarn today, and I cannot wait to start work on the Madelinetosh. So, because I have the annoying rule about number of WIPs, I worked on my boyfriend sock today, and finished the first one. Time to go cast on the second!
