Future WIP

Yarn Haul from Saturday's trip to HEAVEN....otherwise known as The Knitting Zone and Yarn Expressions.

Exhibit A:
Koigu for socks

Great Adirondack for sock

Noro for scarf (from One Skein Wonder)

Schaefer Ann for Thistle Scarf (pattern from The Knitting Zone)

Koigu for Clapotis (

Ultra Alpaca for scarf: To be determined later

Jo Sharp for scarf, Possibly Irish Hiking Scarf

Mountain Colors for scarf but only bought one skein so most likely this will be a pair of socks.

Cascade 220 Tweed for a scarf (Spiral Cable Scarf from Scarf Style)

Carmen sock yarn (gift from Cindy).....I'd had my eye on it in her basket and A.L.M.O.S.T. went back for a skein!!! LOVE the colors!!!!!

Super Wild pencil roving to try my hand and using a drop spindle.

Paint Box for Herringbone Scarf from Life's A Stitch, you can send an email and receive the pattern for free, check out all the various options posted on her blog.

OMG - did you leave anything in the stores?!?!! Hee! I'm glad I didn't know you were going to The Store That Has Koigu, or I would've blown off everything and come with! I thought you were just going to The Knitting Zone. Maybe next time!

Wow - everything is sooooo beautiful!!! Where to begin?? The Koigu will make such a gorgeous Clapotis and the pencil roving is perfect to use with the drop spindle. I know I don't need to say this, but HAVE FUN!!!
