|Madelinetosh Merino Light|
As you can probably tell from the name of my blog, I have a BIG stash of yarn. Some yarns are more beloved than others but all will eventually find a project to become.
My LYS is having a very nice sale at the moment, and I debated about whether to pop in this week since I already have so many gorgeous cakes of yarn in my overflowing drawers. Actually, the drawers are much better organized since I got my new toys -- oops, I meant tools!
I justified my little 30-minute visit with these two reasons: (1) everyone must support their LYS, right? and (2) my year of projects needs specific yarns that I just don't have in my stash (yet).
I'm about to embark on two weeks where I get to knit and read to my heart's content so I want to make sure I have the right yarns for the projects I've decided to work on. One of the projects is the Abigail cardi which I'm itching to start. I think this colorway is going to be stunning and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it in the shop. I did have a moment of indecisiveness when wondering if maybe I should knit something else with these cakes - maybe this instead? - but my wonderful friend Erin helped me through that moment and I'm back on track.
Who knows? Maybe when I am settled and ready to pick up these luscious cakes of madelinetosh, I'll feel like a different pattern, but for now I'm just enjoying the beauty of this color and this yarn.
If you have another suggestion for these treasures, let me know.
