So we went shopping yesterday! We were a little rushed because Jayne had to be home by 3. We went to the “lys” and it was AMAZING!! I didn’t buy anything this time, but I’ll definitely go back. We were just walking around the whole store, looking at it all and feeling all the yarn! lol! It wasn’t acrylic! It was…wool! And ALPACA!(Which I am now in love with since it is sooo soft! lol). And HAND-DYED yarn!! Hand-spun yarn! Roving! wow! It was amazing! lol! But, yeah, I didn’t buy any yarn there THIS time.
I did, however, buy some yarn at Hobby Lobby! I got some Lionbrand:Jiffy in the pinkish color Blush for the Drops Cabled Bag that my friends and I are going to knit on a 7 or 8 hour bus trip..(I guess it will end up being like 14-16 hours since we have to drive there Monday and drive back Saturday..) But yeah, it’s not quite mohair or alpaca, but I still really like the yarn, it’s really smooth knitting, and the yarn is fuzzy and soft.
Then, last night at Knit Night I started on the bag, and I’ve worked on it a bunch last night and this morning. I’m 1 round after the cable round and it’s going pretty smoothly. I hope it turns out cute!! Here’s a few pics: they’re not very good for a few reasons. It’s totally hard to even photograph the bag right now, plus my camera batteries were totally dead, so I had to turn it on, quick press the button, it’d act like it was gonna die, then quickly take the pic, then it would die. so yeah.lol
