I have been fantasizing about a little Zealana Kiwi number lately, so today I went and did a little investing at my LYS…
It’s kind of obvious what pattern I’m thinking of huh!??
These are the Storm Blue, Ocean and Tussock colourways. I especially love the Tussock and the Storm Blue (the silvery grey blue).
You know when you walk into a yarn store, and your heart rate goes up, and your eyes glaze over a bit because you can’t stop goggling at all the yummy yarn on display, and suddenly your speech becomes a little garbled and incoherent, and the brain somehow goes a little squidgy at the edges, incapable of the simplest math equation?? It’s the yarn fumes. I’m sure of it. 😉 How else can two balls become four, or six balls become 12? Surely I didn’t think I needed that many ‘spares’ just in case?? ;p I’m going to have to start writing a shopping list for yarn shopping. Just to stop me going off the rails. Oh, who am I kidding? Like that’s going to do it!
Anyway, today I had extra enablement in the form of a surprise shape. It’s called a small person who has evidently been engaging in a bit of yarn fantasizing of his own. While I was under the influence of yarn, he took the opportunity to scan the shelves for the perfect shade of orange, and this is what fell into my basket too:
Hmm. I have a funny feeling I was ambushed. I’ve been presented with the picture of the toy that requires knitting and “all you have to do now is knit it!” Yeah. Cheeky, aren’t they?
Seriously, it isn’t just the knitter who falls under the influence in a yarn store. I’ve seen it many times – the person accompanying the knitter suddenly also acquires an urgent need for knitted items too, which the knitter conveniently volunteers to turn into desired knitted item…
Has this ever happened to you?
On the subject of pretty yarn, Evelyn has kindly done a Wholehearted KAL update. Hop across to see all the pretty completed/taking shape shawls!
