And by Raid, I mean I was in Yarn Scout for about two hours, shuffling my feet between the three color combinations I wanted to get, and the wall of 100% wool yarn in All of the colors. Eric came in with me and sat down off to the side of a group of women who were knitting, which surprised them. Their husbands would never come in with them, and would much rather just hand off the credit card. Eric likes coming in to socialize (even if he doesn’t do any talking), and I like him coming in so I can use him a color sounding board (he is extremely good at that, btw). Also, I’ve thought about coming to these knitting circles at Yarn Scout – they meet in the upstairs twice a week, Thursday evening and Saturday mornings, for a couple hours. Thing is, I do not knit very much any more, and when I do, they are complicated (to me) patterns that need all if my concentration or I fuck it up. . . . . So, I worked up the nerve to ask to group if they mind a person bringing crochet instead, and not a one did. So . . . .guess what I’m doing next Saturday morning? (happy dance)Now. Onto to really good stuff – my new yarns.
The three Red Heart Super Savers are obviously not from Yarn Scout, but they were bought today. I have a mind to make my future Daughter-in-Law a blanket, and think that a sunburst granny square blanket is what I’m going to do. The pink as the first two circles, green as the third, and the brown/mocha as the fourth – the one that makes it square.
The Ella Rae (dark green and the variegated green), and the Cascade Yarns are both going to be scarves. The Ella Rae a chevroned infinity scarf (I have a friend in mind for this one), and a straight chevron scarf for the Cascade Yarns yarns ( I do not have a person in mind for this one).
