I can’t beleive I’m posting yarn pics. But I guess we all get to this point. I have some intersting yarn to show you all.
I bought the Lorna’s Laces Sock Yarn-in Purple Club in McMinnville, OR at a great yarn shop called Boersmas Knitting Basket. It was my first visit. I stopped while driving through town and I will definately go back. http://www.boersmas.com/KnittingBasket.htm
I bought the Blue Chunky Alapaca with a Twist Yarn in Hood River, OR the next day at Knot another Hat. http://www.knotanotherhat.com/
This is a very nice little store and worth a stop if you are ever driving through the Gorge.
The Fawn colored alpaca I got from my co-worker. She raises alpacas. Several months ago she sent fiber off for spinning and then sold it before I ever laid eyes on it. So she gave me these two skeins that she recently had spun. It is sport weight but it is not as nicely spun as her previous batch. She sent it to the same place but there are several places where the spinning is uneven and there is still hay in it! It is soft, but not as soft as the baby alpaca yarn I bought. I think between winding it into a ball, knitting it and then washing what ever I make the hay will come out.
Then I just got a batch of Knit Picks Crayon in the mail to make a sweater for my daughter- shown in the book. The yarn will be held double through out and knit and 10.5 needles. My daughter picked the colors.
Thanks for looking.
