We met up with Kim at her local LYS, Modern Yarn. I was in heaven when I walked through the door and saw all the yummy yarn waiting for me to drool and fondle it. Mmmmm Malabrigo. The funny thing is I didn't buy any Malabrigo. I would have if they had another skein of the color Kim picked up. That's ok though. I found other yarn that wanted to come home with me.
Before we got too comfortable shopping and knitting for the afternoon, we had brunch next door at Raymond's. Ya know, we had to get the fuel in us for the long haul. It was yummy.
After eating and purchasing our yarn, we all settled around the table for some knitting fun. There were a few other Modern Yarner's with us. I have to apologize in advance if I misspell anyone's name. I believe Eileen was seaming her sweater, which I think was a total shocker to those who know her. Blog-free Kelly appeared and she gave me the most memorable moment of the day. She looked at Shameka and said, "You don't know me but I I know you. I read your blog." It was like Miss Shameka was a celebrity. Then we have Gabriel who refused to have her picture taken. I believe Kim got a great picture of the group with her holding a book in front of her face. It was funny. Kim worked on a very colorful sock and Shameka knitted furiously on her reworked sweater vest. She is determined to finish it this weekend.
So on our yarn crawl we bought from Modern Yarn and Stix-n-Stitches. Here's my booty: 2 skeins Lorna Laces Shephard Sock yarn in colorway Tickled Pink (Just love that); 2 skeins Koigu and 1 skein Colinette Jitterbug colorway Summer Berries. Yes, I am on my pinks/reds phase.
My booty from Stix-n-Stitches is: Berroco Ultra Alpaca in Oceanic Mix. This yarn is designated for the Interweave Knits Gathered Pullover in the Winter 2007 issue. Then I have 2 skeins of Claudia Hand Painted Yarns in colorway Chocolate Cherry. Yummy!
