First, I was completely taken with this winey colorway in Cascade Heritage Sock and grabbed four skeins to knit the Brooklyn Bridge Cardigan by Melissa Werhle. This will be for me, but I have a feeling a certain teenage girl will be borrowing it from time to time.
Next to jump into my basket were five skeins of Rowan Lima in a heathered reddish-brown for a cardigan (or maybe pullover) of my own design for Miranda. I've heard a lot about Lima, and I'm excited to think up a way to highlight the construction of this yarn.
I was all ready to head to the counter and pay for my goodies when this gorgeous skein peeped out from the 40% sale bin. I've always wanted to knit with Dream in Color Smoosy so my US3 DPNs are ready and waiting.
I'm sure you noticed a color trend here, right? As Pearl, the shop owner, said to me, our love of red must just be the Asian in us!
