A lady named Karen was knitting this beauty of a blanket at a yarn shop in Knoxville . (Loopyville) Her gym shoes sort of matched as they were orange.
She said the colors match her whole family room.
I think she influenced me as I had to have this Holly and Ivy Dyeworks sock yarn in the Firestorm colorway.
I actually purchased it at the Yarn Haven
It has some blackish hues throughout it too.
It is 75%Superwash merino wool and 25% nylon.
Al asked me what I planned to knit with this...
um, socks of course.
I've been saving for this trip as Al has told me of the two great shops in Knoxville that we would visit.
I bought this Chicakeeper for my sock yarn, too . (in Martinque Blue)
I gifted Al some sale yarn at the Yarn Haven.
I love to buy her some yarn!
My Travel nurse daughter!
Here she is having a delicious Persephone cocktail in downtown Knoxville. Mmmmm. Champagne and pink stuff in a darling little glass. I tasted...I liked.
I did show some restraint. Seriously I only bought one other sock yarn skein that I will show you tomorrow.
The Ladies at Loopyville were so very nice.
Palmer had some issues with the register so she gifted me their darling project bag . They also gave me their Yarn crawl pattern from last summer. I'll show you that soon too.
All in all a great town for yarn.
It is springtime in the Smokies and it is glorious to be here!
