I’ve had a great time the last few days hanging out at my LYS, The Net Loft, and helping move yarn around. It’s inspiring to just be surrounded by yarn even if all you’re doing is taking it off of one shelf and putting it on another. The store’s owner, Dotty has brought in some new yarns with colors inspired by our surroundings and given them great names like “Salmonberry,” “Orca Inlet at Low Tide,” and “Cordova Mist.” Of course, I love them all, but I was relatively restrained (don’t you think?) and only came home with four skeins:
I took this shot last night at about 9:30 p.m. So the midnight sun is pretty convenient for procrastinating photographers like me.
I have big plans for the third skein from the left, but the others are still percolating.
Don’t forget you have five more days to enter the Spud and ChloÃ« scarf kit contest. Thanks to everyone who’s commented so far, I love hearing about your methods of choosing colors.
