yarn snob
I am not a yarn snob but I did have a great time touching the yarns. I was with a group of women and it was an all day affair. We went to a fabric factory outlet which specializes in quilting fabrics but lots and lots of fabric there. I bought some nice dress weight material to make a couple of night gown which was what I wanted. Then it was off to Webs! They were celebrating an anniversary and had such bargains. I had no projects in mind so I bought some Austermann sock yarn with aloe vera and jojoba oil. I did try and get some yarn to blend with alpaca but no such luck with color matching. So much yarn and not enought time!!! I do have a goodly amount of Lion brand microspun yarn in assorted colors. The yarn is vey nice and I found it works well. I made a nectie for one of my sons with over 600 rows! His only complaint was the tip of the tie doesn't lie the way he wants. I told him to let me block it but the only time I see it is when he wears it!
>>>> Happy Fourth of July!!!
