Bel Canto DK Yarn from Yarn Place
Euphemisms 'r Us! I've decided that my yarn is not a STASH. It's a COLLECTION...like rare antiques, ancestral dishes or vintage jewelry. I added to my collection this past week at Stitches West. The Market Place was incredible. I kept going back and seeing more collectibles. I didn't buy half as much as many of my fellow SnBr's. I tried to restrain my collecting, since I did sign up for Knit From Your Stash 2007. The Bel Canto yarn, above was recommended by teacher fabulosa, Sally Melville. She often takes a lighter weight multi-colored yarn and knits in a slip stitch pattern with a solid color, like black. Socks That Rock from Blue Moon
I already started a crochted top-down shell with this yarn. I just couldn't resist the texture! So silky and smooth!
Braided Leather Strap from Homestead Heirlooms
I'm going to use this strap for my next hobo-style handbag.
Cotton Crepe from Just One More Row
I have some ribbon in similar colors that I think will work well with a side-to-side jacket.
At the student banquet on Saturday night I actually WON some yarn. It's the most beautiful Ultra Alpaca....perfect green/brown color...love it!
Prize Ultra Alpaca from Berroco
I did purchase a few more accessories as gifts....can't show them yet! All in all, it was a glorious vacation. I learned a lot, met some wonderful people and enhanced my yarn COLLECTION.
