Well, sometimes. When you blog, you get caught up in the story you are trying to tell. Often you forget little details in your haste to cover everything. And then someone reminds you that without the details, the story is next to useless. Or I am, not sure which!
In any event, to rectify the missing details of the recent trip to Lancaster Yarns and Wools in Pennsylvania, here is what I came home with:
For a closer look, that is a braid of Frabjous Fibers Silky Cashmerino in “Cottage Garden”:
Two braids the “house wool,” blue-faced leicester in a denimy-blue colorway:
Some nifty sheep note carts by artist Kelsey Showalter for JK Swatches:
And sock yarn:
This is three skeins of Wonder Sock Yarn — 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon — from Spinaway Farm in Pennsylvania. Alas, the Farm’s Web site is not yet up and running, but there is an Etsy store for Spinaway. 420 yards per skein, $20 a skein. The yarn has a lovely hand and there were some great colorways to choose from. Now, if only I find the time to get back to sock knitting — this yarn is certainly the incentive!
