This time, it was a sad sale that caused me to gorge myself on new yarn. As I mentioned before, Yarn Barn in San Antonio is closing, and so their stock was on massive reduction. We drove down yesterday to bid them a reluctant farewell, and bring a small piece of the store back home with us to remember them by. My piece just ended up being slightly larger than planned.
I ended up with:
- Several skeins of Cascade 220, two for Christmas gift knitting and four bare skeins to be dyed using Kool-Aid or food coloring sometime in the future
- What Would Madame Defarge Knit?, a pattern book that I've had my eye on for a while
- A skein of Abstract Fiber yarn in a brilliant pink (call it the theme of the weekend)
- A skein of Dream in Color that blends misty blue and a very light blush pink, I'm thinking it will make a nice shawl with icicle motifs
