Rabbit Made Me Do It
While talking to Rabbit yesterday, I told her that I would be taking my daughter across the state to her soccer practices. While there, I planned on visiting a nice yarn store, KnitWitz.

Rabbit instructed me to purchase more than two skeins of yarn.

I couldn't disobey such a marvelous command, could I?

Here's what I got...

Two skeins of Lorna's Laces, Shepherd Sport. The color is "Georgetown."




Because Rabbit said to buy MORE than two skeins, I had to find a third skein of something. Tough job, but I managed...

This is Trekking pro natura, which is a wool/bamboo blend. It's color #1545.




What a good friend Rabbit is!

Ask her, ask her! Hey, maybe she'll post here and back me up.

Yep...right through the phone.

She said that since she can't get out to an LYS, I needed to go for her.

No problem-O, I said.

I have to warn you I love to enable so it might be detrimental to your bank account if you do.
And yes I did tell Chick she had to buy more than 2 skeins of yarn. Next time I might tell her she has to buy 5

Socks...

There's a pattern in this month's IK -- I'll use the purple yarn for that. The Lorna's Laces are still waiting for a pattern mate.

(Course, I could always buy Peaches 'n Cream and then send them to you! )

Oh yeah, blame the bunny!

I can't see the first photo, but the other yarn is really nice.
