I had the good fortune to make a trip to Webs over the weekend with Nutmeg Knitter. We had been invited for a small Ravelry/Malabrigo Junkies meetup, and decided to go for it!
Unfortunately for me, I had two things working against me: pregnancy brain, which limits one’s ability to retain details and make decisions; and no clear idea of what I wanted to buy. Usually I go on outings to Webs with a list of projects that I am looking to make and the potential yarns to knit them with. I have been trying somewhat unsuccessfully to come up with a color combination I like for the Ulmus shawl, so I thought I”d scope out some other options. Sadly, I stood in front of the display of Malabrigo sock yarn, a yarn I just knit Ishbel with and loved, and felt underwhelmed. Individual skeins looked beautiful, but my mushy mind wouldn’t allow me to see any real potential combinations.
I did not come out of there empty-handed, of course. There was a book that caught my eye, so I bought the yarn to make one of the patterns. Then I just sort of stashed a couple of basics that I figured I would have a use for somewhere down the line.
Looks like I didn’t have any problem buying stuff, especially since I had a store credit (frogging Coraline literally paid off in unused yarn)!
By the way, today is pajama, laundry and knitting day. Tomorrow I’ll have a finished object to share!
