It's lace weight yarn by Lorna's Laces. It called Helen's Lace in a color called Somerset. It's the first time I bought anything so extravagent. 50% silk and 50% wool.
I am still using Lionbrand Woolease mostly, so this was "crazy" for me.
I had never been to a "real" yarn shop before. I just went to Michael's or ordered on line.
But I wanted to take a lace knitting class so I looked on line for a shop in Albuquerque. I found a small yarn shop that just opened recently.
I was stunned and drooling within 3 seconds of walking in. I was there for at least 3 hours talking to the owner and workers about classes and then walking around touching everything.
Then this skein called out to me. I almost peed my pants when I saw that it ws $55!!!
I just had to have it...for my lace class of course.
I probably won't be spending that much on yarn in the future, but what the heck!! I needed a Christmas/birthday present for myself, right?
But don't tell my hubby. He doesn't know he bought it for me yet. I think I will let the Visa statement speak for itself.
