A few of my friends have been teasing me about coming clean about all of my purchases of late. My response to them is, "what do you think I am, s*****?" (We're not allowed to use the "s" word in my house.) DH sees all of the receipts anyway, but I don't think it's necessary to flaunt it. So, I give you a sneak peak at the yummy goodness that came into my home this weekend:
This is a yummy tank top pattern that I picked up at the Blue Moon booth. The crappy picture of the pattern does not do this garment justice. They had a lucious model on display in the booth, knit out of their Bambu yarn. The drape of this yarn is incredible! And of course it is hand-dyed in the lucious colorways that only Blue Moon can create. Mine will be knit in the Squash Blossom colorway. What a name. What a color! Angela will be doing a KAL with me once her custom dyed yarn arrives. I tell you, we are spoiled here in the PNW. Does anyone else have this pattern and want to KAL with us? Leave me a comment!
The next lucious find came from a little tent tucked back behind the food booths. A Swell Yarn Shop is a new-ish internet presence with some hot deals on hand-dyed sock yarn. Angela (a different Angela) was a real sweetheart to talk to and shared with me her pattern for contrasting heel and toe socks which you can also find on her blog.
I came home with an 8 oz braid of BFL, and 8 oz braid of merino, and some hand-dyed sock yarn with contrasting color for heels and toes. As Teddy would say, SWeeT!
Just so you know it is not all about the shopping around here, I have been working on plying the <8 oz of Carbon merino tencel. I've been working on this through two evenings of Star Wars (thankfully different episodes) and am still not done. Tonight, I hope, so that I can give Sam her bobbin back!
For the record, I only received one box yesterday, DH received two :-)
