Even better, a quick look through the all the yarn that seemed to be sitting in my WIP boxes for no reason, and I found the matching skein for the second sock.
As you can see, I stopped at the yarn store yesterday on my way home from west side appointments. I was sort of looking for something, but I wasn't too worried. I always find something at the yarn store even if it isn't what I was looking for.
I was hoping to find something with a twist that better suited these pretty skeins from Sweet Georgia. I plan to make Laura Aylor's First Point Of Libra Shawl with these for the colour gradient.
I did purchase a gray sock yarn, but it was a pretty plebian commercial yarn and the more time passed, the more convinced I became that it was not OK. The twist gray was so different.
As I was doing my stash update on Ravelry, I realized I had nothing that I would use in place of that gray, and that a remedy was in order. And done. Two skeins from River City Yarns Hat Trick Semi Solid series.
And bringing up the yarn collecting for the day, is another great big ball of Kauni in Ecru.
I have a shawl pattern, the Dancing Reindeer shawl, ready and waiting for these stunning green to yellow skeins of Kauni and a single skein of Ecru Kauni.
I am really worried that I don't have quite enough of the ecru and as we all know by now, I hate to run short. So, another skein of Kauni. That is my story and I am sticking to it.
And that was my day. Yesterdays regularly scheduled spinning is going to be todays lunch time spinning , so there is lots to look forward too. But first coffee and to see if I can sort out my red sweater problem. I have high hopes for the coffee. The sweater, high hopes, but tempered with just a touch of skepticism.
