I love this shop. They have a HUGE selection of yarn, everything from pricey art yarns at $50 per skein to humble cotton/acrylic blends for $4 per skein. And their sale corner is great!!! Half price yarn, baskets full! This is where I get in trouble. This visit I had a gift certificate from my SIL, so I chose some cotton for a new project. Then I went hunting in the sale baskets. I justify these sale purchases because A: hello? half price! and B: the yarn I bought is for projects for my kids. THAT does not count as wanton yarn buying.
Here are the goodies!
Upper left yarn: Malva by Filatura di Crosa. It's a ribbon yarn and I plan to use it with some pink cottons I have at home, to make a dress for Miss E.
Book: Custom Crocheted Sweaters by Dora Ohrenstein. Great sweater patterns in here, plus detailed instructions on customizing and fit.
Upper right yarn: Escape by Sirdar. This will be a sweater (or yarn jacket as he calls it) for Mr. M.
Bottom left: Ultra Pima Cotton by Cascade. As you can see I've already started my new project...it's a top for ME!
