A Pyramid O' Yarn?

Well, I have stepped out of the lab long enough to come home, do some laundry, and take a picture or two of some yarn. :)

First off, work has been crazy busy. No time for knitting during my morning break or lunch. It is sad. I dream of the day when I can knit at work again. There is not much to show on the knitting front. I have been working a row here and there on my sock, and there is some secret birthday knitting that is taking place, but I can't show you that. Soon though.

Anyway, this weekend, Alex and I headed over to Chocolate Fest in Long Grove. You may think I wanted to go because of the chocolate, but the truth is, I had a coupon for 20% off non-sale yarn at I'd Rather Be Knitting (btw, if you go to their website, I think the coupon is good for the same thing during Strawberry Fest, which is in June some time...just saying). There was some purchasing for the Secret Pal, but certainly I cannot show you that. There was some purchases for me too, of course!!

Here we have some Mountain Colors Bearfoot in Marias Falls. I think it is a little darker than the picture shows. I am imagining something lacey with it.

Then we have some sale bin yarn:

It's Kathmandu Aran. I have never knit with it before, but it is soft and nice and pretty and cheap! I am imagining another shrug or some kind of bag with this.

Hey look! It's a pyramid of yarn!

Chocolate Fest was a lot of fun. We walked around, ate some chocolate fondue, people watched. Alex even walked around the knitting store like he almost cared about the yarn. I swear, it is just a matter of time before that boy starts knitting.

That's all. The rest of this week brings more working late, more American Idol, and more secret birthday knitting.

  1. The Bearfoot yarn is beautiful stuff and washes nicely, too. Making socks out of it?

    Love your choices...


  3. Alex knitting, I fear, will be the sign that apocolypse is coming. :)

    Seriously though, I hope you get to knit at work again. Perhaps you should knit guitar straps for guitar hero. I don't know if yarn is that strong, but it would be SWEET!

  4. I love the yarn! The first one is fabulous! I would be dying to get me teeth into it!

  5. That tweedy stuff looks great, and everything looks better on sale.
    You know, I've always sort of imagined a grownup sort of sesames street, with a similar format but advanced issues. Like so.

  6. Gosh, this must be the time of year for yarn sales, huh? I walked up to my LYS this afternoon where they were having a huge sale too! I also got something for you online .... and it's a fast shipper so I really will get your second package out next week! yay!!
    Hope work calms down for you. I know it's so very nice to knit at lunchtime to just get yourself centered.
    Have a great weekend!
    Your Secret Pal
