Yarn Accountability

Ok, I decided this would be a yarn accountability post a few days ago. I was just slow in getting pictures taken.

This is a skein of Hempathy (you know, the kind Terri has an affinity for!). It's mostly hemp and cotton. I'll be knitting washcloths with it.

This is another skein of Blue Heron Rayon Metallic. Yay Margaret!!!! If you haven't been in this week, she has a beautiful display of this same yarn in several colors plus some rayon seed or is it bead?? Anyway, it's equally as gorgeous with a slub like texture. This is what I used to start my clapotis and found out 550 yards in a dk weight isn't enough to finish the clappy. So many thanks to Gourmet Yarn.

This is a skein of Anne by Schaefer Yarns. The different greens called to me and we bonded. Needless to say that means I had to buy it. I was reading an old Vogue Knitting the other day and read that Anne by Schaefer is Nancy Bush's favorite yarn to knit socks. Available in many lucious colorways at Gourmet Yarn. (Margaret, about that deal we made for shameless plugs.........) :-) Inspection by Lexi.

This is some sale yarn I found in Texas a few weeks ago. It was too good of a deal to pass up and the plan is to knit a sweater for CIC kids.

This is another purchase that will end up in a CIC sweater. Either the yarn or the color has been discontinued, can't remember which. Sorry.

In the book 25 Cushions to Knit there is a pattern for a pillow called Dewdrop. It's lace and is beaded. I couldn't resist. Although this isn't the color I had intended, again the price sold me. Now to get some beads that will fit the yarn. I need 2800. That sounds like alot of threading. It may take awhile, or weeks, hey...maybe years!! Stay tuned.

And last but not least some kitty porn. I realize there are a great many who will NEVER see this side of Lexi. She only poses like this when it's just me around. Unfortunately I didn't capture the best shot of those beautiful spots she has. Oh well, you'll have to make do with her lovely white tummy.

Hope ya'll have a great weekend and enjoy the crisp cool air!

Sweet kitty pic, awwwww. I love when my kitties do that, I just want to bury my face in their fuzzy bellies. Of couse, Meeper would take my ears off for that....

Yay for Yarn Porn! I can't wait to see those CIC things you crank out!

That Anne by Schaeffer yarn is very nice, but also very fine. I think I need size 0 needles for it. I knit it to a tiny guage, too.

But it's gorgeous and feels great.

Beautiful yarn - I am very envious of your local yarn store, and I want to get back to visit.

Love the cat also.

Ok, I thought the Schaeffer Anne was killing me, but the kitty?! So funny! What a gossamer tummy, you just want to ruffle it.

BTW, thanks for visiting my blog earlier! So nice to find yours, too. :)
