And I only bought two skeins.
And before you say anything, I went in for needles. Needles that I'd called about, they said they had, but when I got there, discovered that they don't carry them after all. I was disappointed and frustrated to say the least. So you can see why I broke the No Yarn rule.
|Only two skeins.|
I must be missing wearing my jeans because oddly, both skeins are called Denim. And even more oddly, when I insert the photos into the blog, the yarn changes color. Both skeins are much darker/grayer. They both look much more like actual well-worn, faded denim than they do in these pictures.
|Cascade 220 Superwash Aran Splatter|
This Cascade 220 Superwash will most likely become a pair of fingerless mitts, or maybe a hat. Probably mitts.
|Blue Heron Metallic|
And this Blue Heron Metallic will be a cowl or scarf. I'm not normally into shiny sparkles but this yarn just called to me. It literally jumped off the shelf and threw itself into my arms. Well, that's not true. The aqua green skein threw itself off the shelf and into my arms.... but I decided the blue would go with my fall/winter clothes much more so than the aqua.
I'm so excited about knitting with the Blue Heron Metalic yarn, I'm thinking seriously of binding off my So Faded sweater sleeve right where I'm at so that I can start knitting with it. I mean, it wouldn't look weird at all if one sleeve was a normal, long sleeve length and the other was above the elbow. No, it wouldn't look strange at all. Knitters would understand. Right?
Dammit! I guess I'll finish knitting the sleeve. But I won't be happy about it.
