So, in preparation, I put in a KnitPicks order :)
I've been wanting to invest in an interchangable circular set for a while and the KnitPicks sets went on sale for 20% off - perfect motivation to finally put in an order! I also ordered the knitting chart keeper and a couple of fixed circulars for another project I've been wanting to start for a while.
I went to my local yarn store (LYS), Urban Yarns, which is always fun (and dangerous). I fell in love with a new colorway from Sweet Georgia Yarns called Chai Spice:
I'm debating between a couple of projects for this yarn.
I am itching to make Arbutus from Jane Richmond's new book, Island. I spotted this gorgeous Indigo Moon skein and, well, I need Christmas presents too so in my basket it went!
As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm hoping to finish Gramps for my 1.5 year old nephew. Here are the colors I chose:
The brown will be the main color.
So, my trip to my LYS was successful. A new yarn store is opening near me on December 1st and, if I've made good progress in knitting this yarn up, I've given myself permission to buy more...and I predict there will be sales :)
