Knitting bloggers shake me out of my rut with ideas for new things to make -- but they also send me straight to the yarn store ;) Fortunately, I'm learning how to economize. Cascade, at $7 for 220 yards of pure wool, is an especially good deal. That's probably enough for two hats.

Here are the three skeins I bought:



One of the skeins is for a gift. The raspberry yarn and the green ball are wool, while the blue skein is cotton.

A little girl spun my yarn in the store and chided her mother, "You're going to have to learn to spin sometime. Do you think I'll be living with you forever?"

Ooh, pretty colors.

I need my kids to stick around to help me with the computer.

Hehe...D's mother enlisted his help with computers when he was still wearing those pajamas with feet.

So what are you going to make with all those pretty skeins?

Bearette24 said...

Lisa - it's a good question. I was originally planning to make hats out of all three, but I might make a poncho out of the raspberry one.

I love those colors - especially the green one - very soft and pretty.

Thanks! I like the green too. It was definitely calling to me.
