My new fave
(in a mid-priced yarn sort of way)
This is a swatch from Main Line, one of Knit Picks new yarns. I was expecting this to be a bit more floppy, but as you can see it holds up pretty well. This swatch has been re-knitted at least three times.
I am thinking of revisiting this:
but in a bulkier, more fitted kind of way. As I have said, I do not ever plan on doing a sweater on size two needles again.
I do like a lot of the Knit Pick yarns, but I do wonder if their color folks ever leave the shop. The selections are sometimes a bit odd. Don't you think?
In vacation news, we are still in Willy (Weak Willy to those of us that went to high school here). We did Jamestown yesterday. It really is better for small children than Colonial Williamsburg. The Jamestown interpreters are a bit less obsessed about staying in period, and are more willing to interact with kids. Big sis got to try her hand at some colonial tools, they both got to try an armor, and sweep the houses. In short, it is much more interactive and hands on than CW.
Today I am hoping to slip out and get to the LYS, Knitting Sisters. I NEED some size three needles...I have a sweater to finish.
And in honor of "Flash your Stash" here's my travelling stash. I did a good job of not overpacking the yarn this time!
