Lana Grossa Merino Big Print
Ahhhh...the siren is calling! The call of half-price yarn..... I answered the cry and zoomed over to Wild Fiber at lunchtime today. It's within minutes of my office, I found a place to park right in front. It was meant to be!
Wild Fiber is under new management. Everyone there today was as sweet as peach pie when I walked thru the doors. Most of the yarn in the main section of the shop is 20%-30% off regular price. In the back room there are shelves and baskets of 50% off yarn.
No sale will EVER be as faboo as the Great Black Sheep Knittery Sale of 2007, however, Wild Fiber had lots of interesting choices today. There are deals on Debbie Bliss, Noro, Rowan, Jaeger, Koigu, Manos del Uruguay, Classic Elite, Alchemy, Muench, Colinette and more.
I picked up seven skeins of Lana Grossa Merino Big Print, Superfein #810, 100% wool. It's soft and lovely. The colorway is very close to some Socks That Rock yarn I purchased at Stitches West from Blue Moon. Hmmm? Even though these yarns are different weights, maybe I can use them together in a garment. Any ideas?
