Here and there I’ve picked up some new yarns over the past few weeks. Even though I am sticking to a new budget, there was a little surplus with holiday money to buy a few new goodies.
First up, I finally got my hands on some Madelinetosh Sock. I’ve only heard great things about her colors and I am very impressed. This is the pheasant colorway.
I also found some Malabrigo Sock in the Turner colorway. The buzz on this yarn has been amazing. I wasn’t sure it would live up to the hype, but the second I saw and felt it, I was in love.
A couple days ago I finally made it to the local yarn store, Twisted. Everyone in my knitting group had told me how great it is and I totally agree! The selection of yarns was great and the service was very friendly. Cori didn’t have quite as much fun as I did since I wouldn’t let her pull every skein out of the cubbies. While it was hard to choose, I finally selected two different colors of Merilon sock yarn from a local yarn dyer, Black Trillium Fibre Studio.
Lastly, I’ve acquired a little more Dream in Color Classy as I have plans for a couple more things for Cori and a little sweater for a friend’s soon-to-arrive baby boy. I absolutely love the new solid colors of Classy. Purple Rain is an amazingly dark purple – it’s almost black. Gorgeous!
