I had a great Thanksgiving. We had a lovely dinner at my brother’s home with his family and then came home to relax.
Today, I went knitting at my local yarn shop and got to spend time with my friends. So far it’s been a lovely long weekend.
I am working on several projects, but will post pictures in my next blog post. This post will be dedicated to yarn.
I got several skeins of striped sock yarn. I am addicted to it. From Desert Vista Dyeworks, I got three skeins in the colors Dia De Los Muertos, Grade School Turkey, and Jacarandas Down Under. These are in her Visio base yarn.
The Loopy Ewe got in striped yarn from Fibernymph Dyeworks in her Bounce base. I got The Elves were in the Eggnog and Tartan.
From Gynx Yarns, I got Epyon in 100% merino yarn.
Now on to other yarns that are not self striping. I got Taria Tweed by Plymouth Yarn in grey and green to make scarves. I have wanted to make something out of this yarn for awhile and my LYS had it on sale today. It is so soft.
I also got Footlights by Blue Ridge Yarns in the pansie colorway. I plan to make some fingerless mitts with this yarn. Instead of one skein, you get four mini skeins.
Last, but not least, I couldn’t resist getting the Chickadee bag by Knittings My Bag. It came with Spinning Fates yarn in the color Let Heaven and Nature Sing. This is a DK weight yarn.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Now, it’s the countdown to Christmas.
