Yarn Pr0n Friday - Williamsburg Edition, Week One
|So, last Wednesday (the 15th) Carrie, Maryanne, Carol and I piled into the car and had ourselves a little road trip down to Williamsburg, VA. You can see Carrie's recap of the trip here - I'll sum it up this way: We started laughing when we left the house at 8:30 in the morning, and we were still laughing when we got back there at 11:00 that night. It was a great day with three really great women. And I can't wait to do it again.|
While we were there, we spent a good amount of time at Knitting Sisters - a really lovely store run by some really lovely women. I might, perhaps have picked up some yarn while there. I know, I know. You're shocked.
Here is a shot of my purchases:
Look! Basket Pr0n!
This is a Lantern Moon "Rio" basket. Honestly, I've seen LM baskets all over the place, and while I thought they were pretty, none of them grabbed me until I saw this one. The instant I saw it, I knew it was coming home with me.
Claudia Handpaints Fingering in Knitting Sisters' own colorway (light on the left, original on the right). This will be a Jaywalker Scarf, as devised by JavaJem.
Claudia Handpaints Silk Laceweight in "Walk in the Woods". Gorgeous, gorgeous stuff. It's so soft, and it absolutely glows.
In other news, I finished my mystery stole!

A very happy (if slightly dorky-looking) lace knitter:
I love this thing. I can't wait until my new shawl pin (I ordered the silver swan) arrives and I can decide on an occasion to wear it. :)
And now, I'm off to bed. Stephie is here, and we're heading out to Philly tomorrow with Annemarie for a Knitty get-together. Kris will be holding down the fort here and hosting a poker night with the boys. I fear slightly for the state of my house when we get back...
