I got some knitting done, but not a lot. I worked on a moebius cowl idea using a new sock yarn from Plymouth Yarn company. It is a gorgeous blend of kid mohair, super merino and nylon. I wouldn't normally like mohair for socks but this yarn is lucious and soft, you are going to love it.
I have been working on making my Adirondack shawl out of yarns of different weights and fibers. I will report on that in another post.
I did visit a yarn shop in Beaufort, SC where I picked up some yarn that is locally dyed. I am a sucker for yarn that I think is unique. But I am sure that is not a new concept to any of you! First of all the name of the yarn caught my eye (my daughter has a Welsh Corgi) and then the fact that it is dyed in Savannah clinched it. Of course it is not unusual that I chose a green colorway, but you don't often see it mixed with grey (that is the rationalization working...).
What is the most unusual yarn you have ever purchased?
