Stash Update...

I finally took a trip with some great friends into Manhattan yesterday to Knitty City . The trip was long overdue but just what I needed to break up the work week. I needed to find the perfect color in Cascade 220 to knit up a bag that I'm in the middle of designing. I ended up falling in love with a beautiful shade of Baby Rose Heather #9442. I was quick to grab enough yardage and keep moving.


I kept passing by the Malabrigo yarns beside the register and ended up buying the first skein of laceweight I picked up. I wanted a delicate color that would suit something I have in mind for the summer. This one reminded me of a cremesicle. I believe the color is Kettle Dyed Solid # 72 Apricot. Honeslty, who isn't in love with this yarn?


Lastly I wanted to pick up enough yarn to work out a pattern for a lacey shrug I'm working on. I wanted a somewhat neutral color that would work over a pale camisole or dress. I decided on Koigu Premium Merino Semi Solids in a wonderful light shade of brown #1303 dye lot #34. I can't wait to give these my full attention.

This morning was back to normal with the kids as usual. Though I had lots of new yarn to play with at naptime, and I just couldnt help myself. Hopefully I'll have enough time this week to finish everything I have on my agenda. Now, I'm excited for some springtime knitting.

Your yarns are the same colors as mine! Don't you just love all you find in your LYS? I hope you will share the lacy shrug pattern with us.
