My yarn crawl haul
I found six skeins of Sweet Georgia Superwash Worsted in silver at Love to Knit, and I slapped my plastic down for it faster than you could blink. My only regret is that I didn't buy a seventh, because there were just so many beautiful patterns in my que that 1200 yds would cover, but I've got super-long arms and the sleeves won't fit without that extra length. I should have known better. That being said, I did decide that I could either knit a super simple top-down cardigan (which I've done before and it fit), or I could knit Rocky Coast. I should have enough yardage to cover the long sleeves. Or I could knit this. I would need a few skeins of another color for the stripes but that's not a problem, and there were some really stunning versions done in gray.
I also picked up lots of cool stuff from the Play At Life booth, which is where I usually do all of my damage during the crawl, lol. I got three of her gradient kits and another maki to make summer armwarmers. At work I use them for scratch guards. And I got two skeins of sport weight self-striping sock yarn from Quaere in 10-Stripe Rainbow. I. Can't. Wait.
That being said, good friends just had a baby today and I was caught unaware. I really forgot how far along the pregnancy was, so now I'm really happy (and justified) that I bought that bunny kit on the crawl as well, lol.
