Yarn Market!!

Took my second trip to the Yarnmarket today.  * sigh *  I could just live there.  Burrow into some large boxes of Malabrigo each night and doze peacefully.

Anyway, I got 8 hanks of THIS!



Here's a better photo of the color (Black Cherry!), from the website:



It's my new fave, Borocco Vintage Chunky.  I so love this stuff.

I found a pattern for a "real" sweater I'd like to make for myself.  Once I'm done making Christmas gifts and finishing my poncho, this will be my next large project.  Although the chunky works up so fast I don't know that it will take me all that long to make.  Regardless, it's my next big selfish project.  :)

Here's what it SHOULD look like.  Only, obviously different color.



Gorgeous right?!

Anyway, it was VERY difficult for me to not buy green yarn this time.  In face they had the same yarn in "Wasabi".



It was soooooooo tempting.  But I have so much green already, I'm becoming the jolly green giant.

Anyway, I need to get back to crocheting.  I really want to get Christmas gifts done by the end of the month.

  2. Ha! I think someone really COULD live there for a while before being discovered among all the bins. :-)

    LOVE the jacket-can't wait to see it finished. :-)
