In any case, I scored B. I. G.
Next is a book I've been wanting for a while and nailed one down at the Four Seasons booth. It's the Second Book of Modern Lace Knitting by Marianne Kinzel. I have been coveting the Rose of England [click here to see a few pics] and Thistle "Balmoral" designs for some time and have plans to make both in the near future.
The third is a beautiful, soft as butter [I'm not kidding] baby alpaca 2-ply laceweight from Misti Alpaca I bought from the Yarn Source. Thanks again for the math help. I was caressing and falling into a trance on the drive home. This is gorgeous, gorgeous stuff and I wish I got more. I think it will become a super spiral shawl from a Gathering of Lace.
Since I had also run out of the blue Alafoss Lopi for my husbands Sigvaldi cardigan, I was hoping I'd be able to score one ball at the Frolic, but it wasn't to be. So, after I molested all the fibre, we headed over to Romni wools [and it was actually pretty tidy] for a ball, which luckily enough they had. Stunned silly, I noticed I hadn't bought any sock yarn at the Frolic and so, in honour of Curlie Girl's absence, I bought some. Cheers, Kim. I better see you in Waterloo.
I'm now off for a nap...with some baby alpaca.
Keep On Knitting...
