It's the ultimate trip into yarn porn. I was having a wonderful time while DH napped on a chair in the corner. I did a little experimenting and "felt up" the bamboo. I did not have an allergic reaction, so I think I will be able to knit with it. I was also "feeling up" the silks and mercurized cottons. I was in heaven for half an hour, that's for sure!!! I could hear the angels singing to me, BUT they kept singing "buy it, it's wonderful, buy it, it's wonderful". Silly angels!

Once the shrug pattern comes in the mail, I will have to give a great deal of thought as to what kind of yarn I want to knit it in. This shrug is going to make the most wonderful bed jacket!

LOL, I am sitting here playing with my row counter. Here's a question for you... do you mark the row just knit, or do you put it to the row you are knitting next when you are using a row counter? It must be a brain fart because I truly am not sure...
I love to give homemade gifts... which one of my kids do you want?

Find our "Canadian Oddball Blanket KAL" on Ravelry as: OddballBlankets
