Some of you wanted to see the swag from my last yarn shop stop....
** Wow, Mom doesn't usually leave the big toys out for me! ** (no yarn was harmed in shooting this footage - I think she was scared of it)
Sock yarn - Schaeffer Anne sock yarn in a nifty autumn colorway and Steinbach Wolle Strapaz in one of my favorite shades of bright blue. Don't think I've used either of these brands before.
Kathmandu Aran in color Bark - This is the ongoing search for a complimentary yarn for my Circumnavigated Cardigan. I'm not going to have enough of the estate handspun that I've chosen for my main color, so this will be for the bottom ribbing, cuffs, button band and collar. It's got a similar feel and heft as the handspun so should work OK. Any extra may become a matching hat or mittens.
I'm trying to figure out how I spent so much money on so little yarn... and I didn't even succumb to the buffalo yarn!
And a gratuitous shot of Country Sock #2 - I think the odds are good to have this close to finished this weekend!
I've had a couple of requests for the marriage gansey pattern. If I like how it turns out, I'll probably write it up and post it here.
