Yarn Shopping!

This is going to be a short post, because I need to go to bed! Tomorrow morning, E and I are driving to Northampton, MA for the huge yarn sale. We are going to shop until we drop! I have a couple of items on my list that I really want to pick up (alpaca lace weight yarn for Icarus), but I am also going to let my heart speak to me too.

If you are going to be at WEBS, come say hi! I am going to be wearing purple pants. Not MC Hammer purple pants, but purple pants all the same. They are the only clean pants I have. :( We should have some code words to recognize each other. You can say, "The eagle is in the green house." I will reply, "The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain."

I spent a bit of time trying to unknot some of the yarn I wound poorly. There seems to be this one huge knot that I just can't get out. At some point I am just going to have to cut it and try to connect the two pieces. I think this is going to be the last ball of yarn that I use for the project because some of the yarn is going to be wonky.

Jen helped me with my winding problems. I didn't have the yarn guide in the "on" position. All is right in the world!

To bed, to bed I must go!

See you tomorrow at WEBS!



  1. Have fun shopping! So I guess you're going to knit Icarus after all? Join the crowd. The Suri Alpaca that I ordered came today, and it is so soft. I can't wait to start - but I should probably finish Branching Out first.

    I'll just do a little in the morning, to see how it knits.

    Theresa told me our wires crossed so we didn't see you at WEBS! Maybe next year. I hope your haul was more successful than mine!
