oh my, now I know how yarn snobs are born!! :lol: I just took my first trip to a LYS during my lunch break. I wanted to buy some lace weight yarn to knit my mom this scarf: http://www.canknit.com/free/kos.html.
I was just amazed at all the pretty yarn! :drooling: I wish I could buy more!!! I am glad I only need such a little amount of yarn to make for this, so that way I don’t feel guilty spend $13 for one 2oz ball of yarn!!! (ok, my entire yarn stash probably doesn’t even cost that much! LOL) I was about to order Knitpicks Shimmer, but didn’t need to order anything else and this was a good excuse to check out a local spot.
The yarn I got is “Zephyr Wool-Silk” 50% Chinese Tussah Silk and 50% merino wool. It’s from Jagger Spun, I actually found a link: http://www.jaggeryarn.com/stock_sales/stock_sales_zypher.asp the third set of pictures - Dianthus color (almost the same color used in this website!). The color is just amazing and bright, so I hope my mom likes it. I thought with a black top, the scarf would look really pretty.
I am so happy I have a place to visit during lunch now!!! :happydance:
