Yet More From The Texas Trip

Here we are at Part B of my lately acquired stash. It’s rather sad when it requires two posts just to show what I came home with from two yarn stores and a friend’s house. What would happen on a shop hop? I dare not think.

Well, let me see, where to start. Perhaps some of you remember when MamaMentor gave me those beautiful blue stitch markers? I’m happy to announce that they now have cousins. MamaMentor made me some gorgeous amethyst ones as well. Beautiful! (Thank you so much.)

We got the beads at a wonderful yarn and fiber store called Rose Path Weaving. Note the fiber. I happened to find certain fibers I had been planning to get for a sweater project, so I jumped at the chance to save shipping. I got some cream baby alpaca, BFL, and mohair locks to blend. The mohair doesn’t appear to be washed, so I have to decide whether I want to try washing it before I blend it into the others, or just wait and wash the yarn to minimize risks of felting.

Thankfully I was cautious enough to only get fiber at that store. They had some beautiful yarns, but I kept my eyes on the baby alpaca and resisted. I think knowing that I had this crimson sock yarn from the last store helped.

I love this red. And I especially love that sock yarn is something I can buy without worrying about what I’ll make out of it. It’s the ultimate impulse buy!

And then I was given these beautiful fingering weight yarns. (Thank you!)

I tell you, I have no idea what I’m going to do with them yet, but whatever it is, it’s going to be good.

    I feel famous now! I can’t wait to see what you do with that yarn–I’m sure it will be beautiful!
