I didn't think I would be posting while I had my rental car.... but.....

I went to the Fabulous yarn shop in downtown Saratoga Springs today - "Saratoga Needle Arts". and made my little purchase. I didn't spend as much as I thought I would. I guess I was trying to be too conservative with my hard earned cash.

Anyway, here is the result . Mostly, I got alpaca. That is the green and very pink in the back. A wonderful blend that is delightful and easy to work with. I also got some "flag" style carry-along to make a scarf for a friend that requested blue. I got a small ball of cream Sirdar, that although completely man-made, feels and works up like cashmere. Then .. in their sale bin, (and who can't resist the sale bin?) I got some peach carry-along that was just too pretty to pass up.

I think the alpaca will turn into wrist warmers and scarflettes for winter. The cream Sirdar will be a baby hat or perhaps baby leg warmers. The peach carry-along will become a scarf when I pair it with some peach angora I have that is just hanging around.

I can't wait to start working with this beautiful yarn, but must finish what I am working on first.

You now have a preview of what to expect for next fall.
