So, I'm back from my day around downtown, and my trip to Lettuce Knit.
It was actually pretty cool. Smaller then I expected, but hey, that's ok. I don't know how often I'll be there, as it's a bit off the beaten path for me, (but if I do get that job, they're super-close by!)
So I hung out there and knit on my Mercury Socks, (which are new to this blog, I started them ages ago as part of a previous test-knit).
I also found a bunch of new yarn. I always like picking up a skein or two of yarn when I'm in a new-to-me yarn store, so. . . .
This is Northbound Knitting's Merino Superwash DK in "Conjure". This just looked awesome to me. I wish there had been a second skein of it, but no, no luck.
Then, one skein of Blue Moon BFL Fingering in "Neptune". I'm hoping this will hold up well enough to make socks, I generally hear good things about the durability of the BFL fiber.
Finally, after all that, I came home to a parcel in the mail from EatSleepKnit. My skein of Malabrigo Sock, (from my winning yarn lotto ticket), arrived!
So, this is Malabrigo Sock, in "Solis".
