Score

Wild Wools is closing up shop. *tear* it was not the closest yarn store to me, but it was the easiest one for me to get to. for being so teeny, it had a nice selection of luxury yarns. i dropped by after work yesterday as they were having a closing sale. i was actually a bit disappointed, as many things were already gone.

i managed to pick up the last 2 skeins of black blue sky cotton. they are different dyelots, but i doubt it'll matter. i'm planning to use it with my khaki blue sky cotton to make knitandtonic's essential stripe sweater. i was imagining wide rugby stripes.

i also picked up 5 skeins of rowan harris DK. it's a deep purple tweedy 100% wool that looks and feels very similar to yorkshire tweed. i was thinking about making a fall vest, like veste everest or maybe fad classic. i haven't decided yet.

i got everything for 50% off, which makes me kind of sad they didn't have more stuff. but it's probably for the best. when i got home, i had a package in the mail from biffd. she sent me some yellow rio de la plata to make felted roses. i need more apartment decorations.

finally, here's a progress shot of cozy. it is a little over 3 feet right now. i'm on my 5th skein of yarn.

i'm going camping with spicy tomorrow and i'll be back sunday night. happy weekend, everyone!

  4. Nice shopping! I would be so very sad if our LYS closed... we only have ONE nearby... the next is a half-hour drive away! Hope you're able to find a new favorite.
