I guess what's old is new again. Remember all the novelty yarns of ten years ago? Louisa Harding's Luzia is a faux fur novelty yarn. (I kind of like faux fur on the hood of a jacket etc.) I may have to line a hat with this stuff although it may make me batty to knit with it. I haven't purchased any yet..Someone at my LYS knit a little hedgehog. Well not so little. He's bigger than my grasp.
I left the store with this sock yarn from Plymouth. It is Denver Bronco colors. I'm making my sister a new pair of fingerless as a surprise. She lived in Colorado many years and loves all things Colorado. This yarn is so soft that it is slippery. I don't know if I would want socks in this slick stuff. But it seems perfect for fingerless.
While out shopping for a certain daughter's upcoming birthday......we saw these sunglass readers at a department store. Who knew? I simply have to take better care of my eyes now that I have cataracts. I was told to get a pair of inexpensive polarized glasses, at the very least, from the eye folks. I still haven't. I'm looking though. I've never been great about sunglasses. Fireman and Zach have always had good pairs of sunglasses. It is time. (the magnet one's I got talked into two years ago are too loose, and are easily dislodged. I'd never fall for that sales line again) Where do you get an inexpensive pair? Walgreens?
