I should be quilting or appliqueing, but I couldn't resist buying some yarn recently while on vacation.
I found this beautiful yarn in a shop in Cedar, Michigan called Wool & Honey...the shop that is.
Unfortunately she was pretty much sold out of it, but I just had to have the shawl that she had made up in it.
Here's a close up of the yarn. The shawl is worked from the bottom up, so that the russet color will be near the face.
The pattern I will be using for this is found here. It is a free pattern.
Well, with her not having a variety of yarns, I found the gal who makes it on Etsy.
She has a wide array of colors and I can't wait to start working on this project; and she was a pleasure ordering from, too.
Well, one project wasn't enough. I, also, bought a skein of Malabrigo in a pretty teal color...the official color is #150 Azul Profundo. Here it is all stretched out.
Don't ask me why I didn't have this balled up at the shop! It is a "lace" yarn (baby Merino wool), so once I balled it up by hand, it came out to the size of a large egg.
This is going to be made into an eternity scarf. Here you will find the makers finished scarf.
I am thinking I need more hours to a day, more days to a week, more days off from work....or maybe I should just not buy more projects and get the ones that I have started finished.......nah!
Happy (knitting, crocheting, quilting, appliqueing) whatever.
