Last night I attended a Louet trunk show at my LYS, Village Yarn & Tea. Not only were there great yarns and patterns to see and touch, wine, cheese, and friendly people, but I got to be a model! My garment was a lovely knitted tee made from Euroflax linen. I liked the style, but the fabric was still a little bit scratchy from probably not having been washed enough yet. Here's the pattern and what I'd look like wearing it if I was a little (lot) younger and had long, beautiful hair. It was fun; we walked around and people touched, petted, and questioned us about the lovely items we wore.
October sock club items so far:
Yarn Pirate - Killer Bees superwash merino and two pretty fuschia-colored circular needles.I understand that the cables on these are 24" (not including the needles themselves) so they'd be long enough to use for Magic Loop if you were so inclined. I might give it another try, although I prefer two circs in general. But I could save some money by only buying one needle in each size and maybe have enough left for more yarn?
The other yarn I received so far this month is from the Simply Socks Yarn Company sock club. It's Dream in Color Smooshy and the colorway is Brouhaha. I've ordered some other colors of this yarn after hearing how great it was to work with, but I haven't used it yet.
I've also been spending too much time on Ravelry since I received my invitation a couple of weeks ago. It's very cool. Look me up - I'm LaurieB.
