Yarn Stash!! Yesterday I went to "Unwind" to sign up for a beginner's lace workshop that is happening this Saturday. The scarf is absolutely beautiful and soft and they say it is easy. We'll see. I chose Handmaiden silk and seacell blend in that coral-pink colour for moi and the plain purple for my friend Alice. You can see these in the 2nd picture. The class is a 2-for-1 in July so this is my gift to her....a class and the yarn. I think it is the perfect birthday gift for someone who has everything and we get to spend a few hours learning a new technique.
Of course I had to buy some other skeins...just because they were so pretty and/or interesting. I bought 2 skeins of "Lorna's Laces"...those two pretty variegated yarns, perhaps for 2 more (gift) scarves, or I will need to pick up 2 more skeins on Saturday if I decide I want to makes socks with them. I got 2 skeins of gold hemp (on sale). I've never knit with hemp...a new venture.
My boys want these beanie hats. I must get started on those as well. But of course I'll need more yarn because I don't seem to have any cotton in my stash for this project. Oh dear.
