Yarn porn (not for the faint of heart)


So here are the results of my trip to Loop in Philadelphia yesterday. Five gorgeous skeins of Elsbeth Lavold Silky Tweed, all on sale. I already have two skeins at home, and I know that they are all different colors, so it looks like I'll be knitting up a stripy sweater or some goodness like that. I loves the yarn. I even managed to drag my dad and brother in with me, and they were very good sports. They rock.


Here is my first attempt at Feather and Fan, and I must say, I am mighty impressed with myself. Not that this is a difficult pattern, but I feel that the yarnover and I are now on civil terms. If I can hammer out the raglan decreases on the Matador bolero (remember that?), we might, dare I say, become friends. The yarnover and me.

Last but not least, here is some scrappy crocheted goodness. My first scrapghan, completed in 8 days, which is unheard of for me and an afghan. I like it, and I used a boat-load of acrylic yarn in my stash. I intend to make at least one more before Christmas, so watch out.

That's all for now. Thanks for stopping by.

I take no credit whatsoever for the Feather and Fan scarf. That is all Sally. And all-gorgeous, I might add.

Loop is a dangerous place for the yarn lover and their credit cards. I lurve it so.

I am in love with your scrapghan. The log cabin looks fantastic in crochet. Love love love it.
