Note: There is a blog contest with this post! (Details at the bottom of this post. But hey, while your here, why not read my blog?)
So, yesterday, me and some of my fine knitting buddies ventured down to Lorna's Laces for a tour. You may recall we did this in December as well. Super fun. If you live in Chicago and have can get together 12 people, you can have your own Lorna's Laces tour. Seriously. Call your knitter friends. Then email Beth. It's so worth it. Anyway, so we drove down there and were so happy to see all the yarn dyeing in action!
Here's Beth (the owner of Lorna's Laces) dyeing some sock yarn in the Andersonville colorway:
And then there was all that Mill End yarn to buy:That was just one of the tables of yarn. There were, like, four tables full of yarn. Cathy even got enough yarn to knit a Hey Teach sweater. So, like I said. Make a call, send an email. Go see those lovely Lorna's people. It's a seriously good time.
Here is my haul:I am seriously into the semi-solid sock yarn right now. So, I got some of that. Then, the magenta and brown sport weight just screamed out to me. "MAKE ME INTO FAIR ISLE MITTENS!" I listen when yarn screams at me, so I bought that too.
What's that? You are jealous that you didn't get to go to Lorna's Laces? That's ok, I got you some yarn too!
That's right, a blog giveaway! Just leave a comment (including your email address or Ravelry name) and you will be entered into a random drawing for this lovely yarn:
That's two skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Multi. It is a Mill End, but I can say with the last Lorna's Mill End I knit with there was not a thing wrong with it. Just lovely lovely yarn.
I will be accepting comments until Thursday, November 12th at 5pm. Then a random number generator will select the winner. Good luck and happy knitting!
