Time for a contest. Irisheyes Lynn, Kathy and Al took a fieldtrip today. We picked a Socks That Rock skein as the prize. Jewel of the Nile it is named. All you have to do to enter to win this lovely sock yarn............leave us a comment about a sign of spring. I'm coming up to our 600th post and it could co-incide with March 20th, the first day of spring. The contest will end on March 20th.
Any sign will do. We are easy to amuse.
Now, about our fieldtrip. We went out to The Fold in Marengo Illinois. SOMEONE had already been there once (named Lynn). The three of us spent an hour and a half choosing yarns and patterns.
I have decided that too many STR's together make for staggering decision-making for me. Al chose a beauty: Lynn chose two beauties, one of which is County Clare. I chose mohair. Please do not ask why. Cotton candy pink Bluemoon Kidmo. You'll be hearing more about the wrap I'm going to make using it.
Then I almost choose a 30.00 skein of slippery gorgeous yarn to blend with the mohair until I detected it chuckling behind my back. This stuff was destined to make me cry in the winding process. I was assured by the proprietor that with patience and two people it COULD be wound.
I am too fresh from my last entanglement winding disaster.
I'm sure she thought I was nuts. I just couldn't take the risk. Nope. I left it right there in Marengo.......
and then we went to lunch at Culver's. Butter burger anyone?
