|Loft in Thistle|
This past weekend, we took a brief getaway to celebrate Miranda's birthday and to visit a city that we all love -- Philadelphia. Whenever I'm there, I can never resist going to Loop. The store is light and airy, the folks who work there are friendly and knowledgeable, and they carry a wonderful selection of natural fibers -- what's not to love?
Knowing that this LYS carries BT Shelter, I made a stop there just before heading home with the full intent of buying a skein or two to try. While I liked what they had in stock of Shelter, I wasn't crazy about the colors -- some were a bit too bright for my mood at the time and my eyes wandered over to the next cubicle of Loft. It's a fingering weight versus a worsted so I had to rethink what I wanted to knit with BT. But I just couldn't resist this color (Thistle) and so bought three skeins.
I have been coveting Brooklyn Tweed's wool for so long now that just having these beauties in my stash makes me giddy. I haven't decided what I'll knit with these yet but there is no doubt I'll be casting on very, very soon.
