First pick was the Claudia sock yarn in Cabin Fever...full of coppery browns, lavender-mauves, and lightwash denim blue. My plan is to make Barb's Koigu Scarf from that.
And truly that was to be the only purchase today...just a hair over my budgeted amount...until everyone I knew began to pick up the incredibly dyed cotton yarn from WollesYarnCreations and I was helping my friend, Babs, decide on colorways and look at patterns...
I wavered...and finally caved to the bright burgundy, dark gray to black mix you see there and the Old Shale version of shawl called Theodora.
I managed to get almost to the point of sewing down the picot hem of my first charcoal gray sock today, so that was a very very good thing! And I left early, because I just was so tired. So now, rather than taking a good nap, I'm here updating the blog yet again...
I hope you appreciate that! *wink*
Now once I put these two yarns into my Ravelry stash, I think I'll cave to the bed...at least for a little bit.
