My first package came from Eat Sleep Knit. I placed my order on Black Friday, because they had a mystery sale. You got a percentage off after you checked out. I received 10% off, and I also used my credit from the Yarn Lotto. I decided to purchase something more luxurious than usual. I bought MadelineTosh Pashmina Worsted in Baltic.
I am planning to make Joji Locatelli's On The Road Again.
I also couldn't resist the sock yarn during this purchase.
I fell in love with Lorna's Laces sock yarn in Bittersweet years ago. I made a sock for a swap, and always wanted to replace it. So, here it is, in the Solemate base.
I also decided to try Sweet Georgia yarns Tough Love Sock (Superwash Wool/Nylon) in Snapdragon
All of this yardage in yarn has propelled me to receive the 5 mile mark in the yarn marathon.
I also received a mug with the yarnathon logo on it. Sadly, it broke during shipping.
I am blaming the post office. Ugh!
I contacted Eat Sleep Knit via email, and they were very quick with their response. They will send a replacement mug with my next order. Woohoo!!!!
I also received another yarn lotto ticket, and it's a winner.
$5 store credit plus the $20 store credit earned for the 5-mile marathon mark. Woohoo!!! I see more sock yarn in my future.
On Small Business Saturday, I made a trip to Knitty City, and picked up this lovely skein. Manos Del Uruguay yarn in Alegria. I just love all of these bright colors.
The next package I received was from MOOD.
They carry Pagewood Farms yarn online only. This color is Pink Sand, and will become a second Grandpa Cardigan.
I also made some purchases at Knitpicks. Felici yarn is back, and I just had to get some. Self-striping yarn is my favorite.
I also bought caspian needles because I know for a fact that I will need to magic loop these. I bought two different lengths so that I can do either a single sock, or two at a time. This is the first time I will be using caspian needles. I'm excited.
I also bought a size 2.5 circular needle to use on my Japan Sleeves sweater for the cuffs on the neckline, body, and sleeves.
And Speaking of Japan Sleeves. Here is my progress.
I have completed 4 inches of the body.
Last, but not least. I purchased yarn to make booties for a friend in Atlanta who commissioned me to do the knitting.
OK, now that I have all of this yarn, I need to find MORE free time to knit.
More updates after the weekend is over.
