Fun at Knit-n-Hook

I went to Knit-n-Hook today -- our local yarn shop -- and had some fun. I bought a skein of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in columbine blossom -- a nice blue (which isn't listed on their site -- discontinued?), to match this yarn that I had in my stash -- also a Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. I'm going to be brave and try to make socks out of this yarn. Wonder if it will work.

I ordered two books from Amazon a week or so ago -- Weekend Knitting and At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much. This second book is written by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, who is the Yarn Harlot. I'm saving both of them for vacation. I did peak in the Weekend Knitting book and found a pattern for a knitted bag. I had leftover yarn from the felted purse that I made with Miss Priss yarn, so I bought some Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride wool to match -- in Emerald Fantasy and Blue Flannel -- stripes for the bag.

Both of these projects will be for vacation travel (Yippee!).

I also bought a skien of Mountain Colors Wool quarters in Missouri River Blue. I have no idea what to do with this. A very fun shopping trip!
