I haven’t bought any yarn since May when I got the yarn for my Sunday Market Shawl while I was in Vermont.
I have been coveting Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Super Chunky since I saw it in yarn store in North Carolina. It feels great and the colors are so vibrant. But I didn’t need it and with 55 yards in a skein, I knew I’d want to get two to make sure that I wasn’t limited in my pattern choices.
Then I saw it on sale on WEBS so I had to get it. And it arrived last Thursday. In the rush of the weekend, I actually held off on opening it until Friday night! That’s restraint.
It’s soft and beautiful and I can’t wait to find a pattern for it. This color is called Red Rover.
And since I was already paying for shipping, I got another skein of Ella Rae Lace Merino because it was also on sale and I can’t wait to knit my other skein, so I figured I’d be just as excited for this one in orange, yellow and denim!
