I’m sorry, but I can’t resist. I had to have these skeins of yarn. If it makes me happy (which it does), then I say go for it.
I love String Theory Colorworks continuum yarn. Simply Socks had a skein of the color Trifolium for St. Patricks day. The yarn is so colorful, I couldn’t resist. Can’t wait to see how this will knit up into a pair of socks.
Of course, I couldn’t pass up another skein of Twisted Limone’s Tangy 100 yarn in the color Northern Sky. I guess you could say that stripes are really on my mind.
I was at my local yarn shop (The Knitter’s Edge) and they had a sample made up in the pattern 198 Yards of Heaven scarf by Christy Verity in Mountain Colors Twizzle in the ruby river colorway. I love the yarn and the pattern looks great in this yarn. It only takes one skein of yarn (198 yards), so how could I pass this up?
I was checking out the Loopy Ewe web site and came across Stricken Smitten's sinful sock yarn. So, I had to try this in the color Plink. Purple is one of my favorite colors.
Finally, one of my knitting friends put out a request for knitted baby blankets for a niece who works in a cardiac unit for children. The Knitter’s Edge had some colors of Encore on sale, so I bought 4 skeins of color 9626 (it looks like a light denim color) to make the Sunny Baby Blanket.
So yes, I bought more yarn, but I am furiously knitting away with a smile on my face.
