Yarn in the House

Last Sunday morning I drove to the coast to take a walk by the ocean. Afterward, I stopped in at a yarn shop a few blocks from the beach and discovered they were offering 20% off their entire inventory.

Oh, frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!


The Mission 1824 Cotton is for making wash cloths.

I'm using the Paca de Seda alpaca/silk blend to make a scarf for someone who shall not be named as she might be reading this. The pattern is the Yarn Harlot's One Row Scarf.

My Reversible Cable Scarf that I started a few weeks ago is coming right along, too.

On a completely different subject, did you watch the season premier of Dancing with the Stars this week? Last season wasn't very interesting, but this season they have a great line up. Did you see Jennifer Grey dance? I loved the movie Dirty Dancing when it came out (still do). Seeing her dance again so beautifully after all these years brought a few tears to my eyes.

The colors! I love all that yarn. So pretty. I too am a
Dirty Dancing fan but I don't watch DWTS. I may have to tune in to see Jennifer Grey dance.
