I Was Forced To Buy Yarn.....
by.......unseen forces that don't give a fig that I will be knitting all this yarn in a cardboard box under a bridge in my old age. Which is not that far away. Now. Which one of these two should be the Adamas shawl?
The top two of the Zephyr JaggerSpun silk/wool blend.
They don't name yarns the way they do lipsticks, do they? I would love that job but undoubtedly there's more to it.
The other is a Kid Merino by Crystal Palace Yarns. I still mourn their retail shop, Straw Into Gold, off Ashby.
And these are the yarns for Rachel's scarf. (And if you're reading this Rachel, don't get your hopes up. It takes me approximately eleventy million years to finish anything. I need a good stitch and/or pattern too. Do you like fringe? )
I picked this all up at The Yarn Boutique in Lafayette....it's a little hard to find down the "alley" but it's conveniently located right past the Lafayette Book Store. I did manage to not buy any books there (mainly by not venturing in).
Oh, and watch Bleak House on Sunday nights at 9pm. I caught the second episode (but not the first) (out of six) and it was riveting. I've got to read the book now. But now, or after the mini series is over? I don't want to spend the next four episodes yelling at my TV That's five people you're combining! And why would X be doing that when it was Y who .......gah. I try to see the film version first.
