|This is some sock yarn-- thicker than typical sock yarn- but, it will be great for socks for boots/etc. Notice that the label even says: MEGA BOOTS stretch! Some of this is for a gift too. I am going to teach a friend how to knit socks and I think a thicker yarn that 'slowly changes' colors will help keep her interest level and of course they'll knit faster than regular sock yarn will. I did get 3skeins for myself-- *I got double skeins of most of the colors. I forgot to get a second skein of the orange/red skein though.|
|Same yarn from the end so you can see the color changes better.|
|I loved the colors on this selection. Orange/purple and some red w/ a little blue thrown in. No plans for this- I just liked it.|
|This is more my style 'color-wise'... various shades of tweedy blue colors.|
|I had bought this on another shopping trip. I can't remember if I shared a photo of it or not? I like the brown with the blue and turquoise blue colors.|
|This is the green yarn that I had in my mind-- for the shawl that I had bought the yarn for a few weeks ago. They didn't have this soft leafy green color when I bought the other yarns-- but, I was happy to see that they had this in stock today.|
Our second stop was the yarn store. The third stop was the big Italian grocery store that is near my house. Our last stop was to a new, to me, restaurant. It wasn't raining while we were out shopping- but, it has rained heavy since about 1pm today. The temperature has also dropped and my house even feels cold. I have turned up the heat two times today and it still feels cold to me. I think it's because we've been having warmer than usual weather for the past 2-3 weeks and we've gotten spoiled by the spring-like weather?
I've been spending many weekends at home- cleaning house, finding things to get rid of, and working at school. So, it was fun to 'get out and about'... maybe, I'll start trying to do something every other weekend now that the weather is getting 'hopefully' warmer and my knee is getting better?
Tomorrow, I will be back at cleaning house and working at school- but, for the rest of the day? I think that I'll actually take a break and do some knitting. Sounds like an exciting Saturday night, huh?
