I pressed in close to the house (must stay in the 'shade') and decided to photograph everything on the patio brick. However, just sitting on a chair made me sweat, so once again the yarn was bagged and trudged back into the house, where I settled for using the kitchen table and a chair as props. The color is never as good on inside shots, so I feel like these are second-class pictures, at best.
Here are the goods!
Some Cascade Pastaza: Maybe something felted;
a bag, or mobius bowl, perhaps.
Rowan Summer Tweed--this stuff is gorgeous!
I'm thinking a summer purse (basketweave?) out of the beige,
and a table mat out of the grayish. Yes?
What yarn sale is complete without sock yarn?
And of course, things other than socks can be made with sock yarn!!! Someone told me that Cascade Fixation is the "best ever" for dishcloths, so I'm gonna give it a whirl. And, the shaded beige is planned (at least for now!) for a shawl/wrap.
This being the pattern I bought for said wrap.....
The bright colored Collinette is for felting onto other items, and I see a bag in the future of the Rowan Big Wool.
There's a pattern for a chunky cabled bag that I'm thinking would be nice with a strand of the Soft Tweed and the Felted Tweed run together.
I Have a fun little pouch pattern for the other two.
And last, but certainly not least, I actually bought EXACTLY what the pattern called for to make the cutest bag (Imagine, ME making a BAG!!) out of these yarns. The color here is off. It's not a dull gray, but rather a beautiful softish shade of green called "Herb". That's right--don't pronounce the "H"!!!
I should have taken a pic of the pattern. Don't know why I didn't.
I also came away with some Addi circs, which I'm excited to try, as well as some straight needles in sizes I don't have. A fun time was had by me, but I keep thinking of the nursery rhyme that says...
"And when she was good, she was very, very good; but when she was bad she was AWFUL!!"
