When I travelled to Pittsburgh last week, I was absolutely NOT going to buy yarn. I had no plans to go to any yarn stores at all. However, there is a hat I really want to make called Bedrock. It’s by Stepen West. The yarn used isn’t carried here in the area, but I did find it at a store in Canonsburg, which was about 15 minutes from Sarah’s house. So we hopped over there Thursday night. I had a little panic on buying that skein because it was only 98 yards and I just couldn’t see how it could make that hat. I wasn”t sure and it was too pricey to buy two skeins… and I didn’t want to buy one and not have enough… so I passed on it.
Instead, I bought some Rasta by Malabrigo in Teal, Madtosh DK in Worn Denim, Crazy Zauberball and String Theory Caper (cash blend sock yarn) in Jasmine.
Right now I only have plans for 2 of these yarns, the Zauberball is going into a spectra scarf and the Rasta is set aside for the next cowl in the great cowl kal of 2012, sponsored by Feministy.
