Classic Designs for the Modern Knitter

Weekend recap

This weekend family came to town for the annual Spa Knit & Spin in Freeport.  We didn't actually get that much time there, my aunt flew in from Iceland on Friday so she was exhausted, and I have a toddler, need I say more. I did get to do a little yarn shopping.  Ball and Skein was in the marketplace, and I bought a skein of Sophia in Cinder.  It's 400 yards of merino blended with 10% cashmere and 10% nylon, fingering weight.

We took a trip up to Purl Diva so my Grandmother could get some needles.  I left with 3 skeins of String Theory, which is hand dyed in Blue Hill, Maine.

Here are 2 skeins in Delft and Carina.

Our visit was cut short once Jonah started sweeping the floor with a particularly beautiful skein of madelinetosh pashmina. (sorry, Ellen!)

In other news, it snowed all weekend.

While I certainly long for Spring, it is beautiful right now.

Hope everyone has a great week!
