So, after posting on Friday that I had yarn stores on the brain, I proceeded to look up yarn stores. The smallish but well stocked one was advertising a "big, honkin' sale", which just happened to start that very same day. It was fate, I'm sure! So, I hopped in the car and drove over. Their stuff seems expensive, but I guess I've become accustomed to US prices... which, by the by, has anyone noticed how good the loonies has been doing?! But I digress...
So, being one for a good bargain, I picked up the following:
The Summer Issue of Interweave Knits (not on sale, but I was going to buy it anyway), 3 skeins of Rowan Denim in Memphis, and 7 skeins of Baruffa Merinos Sei in colour 42000 (sort of a charcoal grey).... Otherwise known as just enough yardage to make the sweater on the cover of the summer IK!
Here's an upclose of the Merinos Sei (apparently made by the same company as Trendsetters).
And an closeup of the Rowan Denim. I've been wanting to try this to possibly make the skirt from Spring IK (which can be seen here on Eunny Jang's blog - she should really post something new, soon!) but these three skeins are going to be used for the denim baby pants in Last Minute Knitted Gifts for my friend who is having a baby in June. If I like the way it knits up, then I will possibly try out the skirt.
