Exhasuted, Happy and Not Totally Broke: The Frolic Haul
Two books from Marsha. Neither, of course, is the one I was looking for, but there wasn't a copy to be found. So there. Anyway, books should never be restricted, they're edumacational.
Dark sock yarn - yes! Koigu KPM since I haven't actually knitted with it. So that's research. And also Shibui Sock yarn, since I'd never actually seen it before. Apparently, it's fairly new to Canada. More research.
And then the obligatory insane sock yarn purchase... $8, in what I can only describe as a "clown" colourway. Lana Grossa Meilenweit Magico. I refuse to feel guilty about this.
(Seems I like my socks in two colours - black, or clown. This is a surprise to no one but me.)
And then something I'd never seen in person before... Kauni... there's about 650m in this 160gm ball, and it stripes in all the colours of the rainbow. Literally. Looks like a sport weight, 100% wool. I'm thinking a spectacular lace shawl. Rectangular, so that the stripes are regular.
So. No one had blocking mats, although Jennifer tells me to go buy kid's playmats at Canadian Tire.
And didn't see a good colour for a doll. And then I didn't find a colour I liked for summer laceweight yarn.
So, nothing too insane, and even something that was on my list.
I look forward to seeing everyone else's goodies.
