New Yarn

A couple weekends ago I ventured all over LA to participate in the LA Yarn Crawl with my fellow knitters. It was a blast and I came away with some awesome yarn. I did break my rule of buying yarn without a pattern to go with it...but I'm sure I'll come up with something for these lovely colors. They're Borecco's Maya yarn - a lightweight cotton and alpaca blend, and I'm in love.

I'm making another cowl pattern to knit with this blue and yellow yarn - it will be my Swedish cowl. :) When I'm finished I'll share the pattern with you all.

I'm usually not a big meme fan, but I found this one rather appropriate since I came back from the Yarn Crawl with 7 skeins of yarn and 2 bunches of roving...

Happy knitting, everyone!


  1. Precicely why I don't attend the Yarn Crawl in Portland! I would NOT be able to resist bringing home yarn i have no plans to use!!! But - you certainly made some lovely choices here. I just discovered Borecco's excellent how to videos recently. Beautiful done and I really appreciate the resource. give it a look. Can now wait to see what you make with all you bought!!! i know it will be wonderful!!

  2. ha ha ha, perfect spot on comment at the end - very like me LOL
