I took the pictures a few days ago and then left on a business trip. I don’t have a laptop so I couldn’t post from the hotel. And as an aside gripe – the hotel didn’t have a movie rental service. I was stuck watching crap I wouldn’t even watch at home. I was looking forward to seeing something that had just been in the theaters not so long ago.
Anyway – here is what I purchased at MD S&W…
My first purchase was the pattern which is a crocheted scarf. I love the lacy but plain look of it. I was going to get the yarn too but it would have cost almost $200 and I wasn’t about to do that. I bought the yarn pictured with it, which is the same yardage and was just under $40. It’s really soft and yummy yarn.
Second was a rug hook kit. I’ve done rug hooking before and Shannon wanted to try it and I ended up getting this heart which I think is really cute. I have to find my hook and hoop.
Then we found the Fleece Artist Sea Wool and I got two skeins. I also got some Panda Cotton to try.
Then there is the Brooks Farm yarn. They have such lovely stuff, but I only bought the Acero in two colorways. The purple will more than likely be one of the shawls from Victorian Shawls today and the other a ½ pie shawl.
The last is the pattern and Koigu I got at Rosie’sBelieve it or not I've not cast on one of these yarns or started the rug hook kit. What I did do was cast on for a ripple scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I'm using Lorna's Laces and Shaeffer Anne. I may be casting on for the Tomato sweater later today (from No Sheep).
Does anyone know a treatment for cast-on-itis?
