My grandma is always very concerned about what to get me for Christmas. So a couple of months ago, we were talking, and the idea of getting knitting stuff came up. So, she said she would get me some yarn. My stipulation was we had to buy from the Yarn Shoppe up here in the QC, so she agreed to drive up and have lunch at Olive Garden and then go yarn shopping. We ended up providing for Christmas AND birthday (my birthday is in the beginning of February, so its logical to buy it all at once) - I'm getting FIVE
skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd's Wool Worsted in Baltic... a yarn that I have been drooling over since May but haven't been able to afford
. AND an extra long Addi needle for learning to do a moebius
. That's two extra skeins above what I was hoping for
. Now I just have to decide what to make from the Baltic...
I don't usually use variagated yarns so I don't know what patterns will look good. I know I want to do a hat and gloves with three of the skeins (for anyone who doesn't know, I have a strong aversion to scarves).
