Beautiful yarn

Always around this time of year, I start to fantasize about yarn. I think about the yarn shop my mother and I used to go to, housed in a historic train depot, full of teapots and fireplaces and wooden shelves badly in need of waxing and yarn that was so beautiful, I could hardly process it. I think about my first yarn love, Cascade 220 “Lichen”. I think about my second, Mountain Colors Mountain Goat “Rosehip”. I think about heathered yarns, about nubbly yarns, about springy well-spun woolen yarns and creamy merino and whisper-soft silk. If I could eat yarn, I would.

It always ends up with yarn buying. This year I bought the yarn in the first three photos. The rest are the previous two years’ hoard.

  1. Similarly, I fantasize about yarn just like you do! I love it all. Right now I am on a wicked sock yarn buying kick. This means that I need to start making socks. Can’t wait to see what you make!
