thursday

It was all about the yarn.
And, knitting with my new friend, Leslie.
My friend, Keana.
All in my favorite yarn shop.
While at home, my new sweater arrived in the mail.
I love a good yarn day.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Kristina said...

Oh my, it was a good yarn day. I really like that blue yarn. For some reason, I love variegated yarns. Have a great weekend!

Karen L R said...

You have inspired me to go rummage around in my yarn and get a new pair of muttons on the needles! We are snowed in, and loving it!

I drove by Knit One for the very first time yesterday! We were making a Trader Joe's/Whole Foods run, but next time I'm out that way I will definitely make the time to stop. :)

Frida said...

Oh, that is a beautiful pattern, and beautiful yarn. Good luck!

I love to get boxes of yarn in the mail!

Definitely an awesome day. I wish our LYS was closer so I could just drop by. I guess my embroidery shop will have to do. Have a lovely weekend knitting up the new yarn.

Jane said...

Looks like a fabulous day. Have a great weekend!

sewstylish said...

Oh I love that yarn you got in the mail. My lys carries it and it's one of my favs. I'm making Sylvi in it now in grey. Gotta love the all about yarn days.

Peggy said...

You could totally wear that sweater. I would look pregnant! :(

Suzanne said...

Jan said...

The store looks so charming. What a wonderful place to do what you love with people you love. Everytime I see a new project from you I think "I want that" - this is no different. Can't wait to see pictures.

J said...

What a great way to spend time with friends, whilst all enjoying a favourite passtime - and with coffee too - it just needs cake, then it would be my perfect day.
Love the look of your new yarn - happy knitting.

Jenn said...

What a great day...not only friends and yarn in the lys, but more yarn at home! Can't wait to see that sweater finished. And love that ball of variagated blue...makes me want to know what it is to make a little sweater or vest for our baby boy.

Frances said...

I still think that the name of your blog is wonderful. I found it and your Toasty mitts patterns via a knitting friend who lives in Cornwall, UK. I live in NYC.

Isn't this community marvelous.

This was a good post, but I could not get the link to your fave yarn shop to connect.

No matter. Guess we all have lots of wonderful yarn shops, some we visit via the web, some we actually get to walk in, and have the pleasure of pulling all those skeins from their bins, really reflecting on projects to be commenced.

Cheers to you, Leslie!

Cyndi said...

Love THAT new pattern and yarn. Who could ask for a better day!

cheryl said...

oh! I miss miss miss miss MISS that store! Blasted Boston and their snow-less winters and too small for comfortable seating yarn shops.

Sigh... I agree. Heaven indeed.
