I have been a woman on a mission. I've made some good progress on the Stardust s/s cardi for DD17, more pictures next week. I added beads for a little bling and DD and I both really like the way it's turning out.
I made my way back to Twist and swapped out the sherbet leftovers for some "boy colors" of the same yarn. Boys deserve equal time, don't they? I think this looks like a police photo lineup. This yarn is just going to go to the stash box for a while.
I also picked up 2 lonely skeins of dark red Classic Elite Provence. I had seen them the last time I was in Twist and told myself that if they were still there, I would have to grab them. They say "Holiday Table Runner" to me. I have even looked at stitches for this project, too, so I guess you could say it's a project on the radar.
And to satisfy my curiosity, I finally ventured to the "other" yarn shop in town, Heritage Hut. The atmosphere wasn't nearly as welcoming as Twist, and, true to what others had said, the stock was completely different. She stocks TONS of leaflets, which surprised me in a good way. I was also happy to see DMC Cebelia in every color and in 3 weights! I bought some Reynolds Morocco in cream, a bulky cotton/linen blend for a quickie project (it's a secret for now). The Morocco and the Provence both needed to be wound, so that meant the kitchen counter had to be cleaned off!
And I "baked" yarn cakes!
Finally, I made it to the Thursday night SNB at Twist and Shelly had helpers putting together new glass display cases. I am thrilled to see such a fun LYS succeed to the point that Shelley can reinvest in the business and make the shop even better. You go, girl!
DH decided that he would go to TX this weekend, so no Woolie Ewe for me after all. I think I have enough to keep me busy right here! I hope everyone has a wonderful long weekend with lots of relaxing time to knit! I plan on it!
