You know when you don't post very often? You end up with way too much to say. Most interesting to most of you, especially those that might be local, would be the updates in LYS status.
First, we have Colorful Yarns
. Tiffany managed to secure a wonderful new, more spacious, and better lit space. Please check the link for additional info... the store is in the same parking lot, but different building... directly west of where they used to be located. Here are some pics of the new space!
on the right: wall of wool!... on the left: the sock cubbies.
Here we have the new knitting nook ... a room in the back with the books and comfy chairs. The ohter pic just shows the spaciousness.
The newest metro Denver area LYS on the block! Lamb Shoppe
has many wonderful walls of yarn, with enough for entire projects in all the colorways they own. The people there are very welcoming, but not intrusive while you browse/horde the yarn. I can see that I will be spending much time here in the months before I move.
My most recent yarn purchase. Some absolutely TO DIE FOR Noro Kochoran, in an irresistable colorway for me. From LambShoppe
More recently purchased yarn. The cone of yarn is from WEBS
, which I am planning on using for the Sunrise Circle Jacket from the last issue of Interweave Knits (designed by Kate Gilbert?). The other yarn... two beautiful skeins of Cherry Tree Hill, which I purchased from LambShoppe
FO FO FO FO FO FO FO FO FO. sorry, I so rarely have one of these that I have to celebrate 10 times as much as the average knit blogger when I actually have one. The Noro Shrug, which I made out of K1C2 Paintbox
(color 05). I love each and every one of the colors, and knit it up super quick. It took me 3 times as long to finish it (block) as it did to knit the thing.
Here are some AFOs. Almost Finished socks, which I made using Trekking XXL, color #108 (with which I am in luuurrrrv), size 2 DPN/magic loop.Both patterns are taken from Nancy Bush's Knitting on the Road
(a book that Kim
gave me.) I get bored easily, so I decided that from here on out, I'll use similar, but not the exact same, pattern for pairs of socks.
