Small Stash Enhancment

A local yarn store, Fringe, is going out of business.  Don't be too sad, because the owners of Fringe, are also the owners of Dream in Color yarns.  Dream in Color has taken off, so they need to close the store to dedicate themselves to the business.

Last Saturday,  I spent a few hours shopping at their sale and picked up a few items.

Mission Falls 1824 Cotton in Light Moss -- which has already become a bath mitt. 


Plymouth Linen Island -- this will probably become a small hand towel a la Mason Dixon.


2 skeins of lovely Malabrigo Worsted in Emerald Vivacity


Some Knit One Crochet Too Cotonade in Pebble -- this will probably become some sort of face cloth.


2 skeins of Mauch Chunky by Kramer Yarns in Cotton Candy -- 1 skein has already turned into 2 hats for my nieces.


A couple of skeins of Hemp for Knitting #210 Hempwol in Natural, Licorice, and Silver Sage

2 skeins of Alpaca with a Twist Highlander in Heather in Bloom (isn't that a great name?)


And last but not least -- as they run Dream in Color, the 2nd's are available for purchase:

Dream in Color Smooshy in (I think) November Muse:

I also picked up a bunch of books:

  • The Knitting Answer Book

  • The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns

  • 101 Designer One Skein

  • Barbara Walker's Charted Knitting Designs

  • Big Girl Knits

And a couple of patterns:

  • Smittens

  • Pacific Northwest Shawl

  • Head Huggers

  • Hat & Mitten

And of course some DPN's (to go into my new case)

I am super-jealous of your new stashy-goodness! Alpaca with a Twist is my new favorite yarn, good score. Congrats to the Dream in Color folks (I just picked up a skein of their sock yarn, too!).
