Yarn Shopping

Yesterday was a very long day. I was up at 4:30 to get ready to head to San Diego. It's a good thing I went to the airport early. A huge convention finished Saturday afternoon and there were hundreds of people in the security line. I made it in time but there wasn't a lot of sitting time before my flight.

I didn't have a lot of time at TNNA so I made quick decisions and I'm happy with them.

There are 4 new colours coming from Freia Fibers. I ordered them in fingering and super bulky.





This beautiful shawl is knit in Mrs. Crosby's new lace weight - Reticule (100% merino, 768m in a skein). I forgot to get the name of the pattern but will talk to Mrs. Crosby when I get home and get it. The colours look amazing in the lace.
Classic Elite has throw patterns for Liberty Wool. There will be 16 new colours coming this spring. We will receive two colours a month.



Inspira Cowls are dancing in my head.
I have some Lorna's Laces String Quartet kits so that we can make up some samples for the store. The colours are great!

New shawl pins and leather closures are coming from Jul.

Beth and I visited Aria today. There was a lot of commotion so we went to see. They are filming the next Bourne movie. We didn't get to see Matt Damon :(

The casino entrance was set to look like there was a convention - I guess that Bourne will be attending.
We're having a bit of rest before dinner. It's going to be an early evening because we are golfing tomorrow. It is a very special course that Beth has wanted to play for many, many years. I have a feeling there will be many pictures taken on the course.

Julie, thanks for bringing us the news from San Diego.
I love the last blanket in the post --- the one with the big diagonal squares in purple, green and orange --- can you identify the pattern name?

The throw patterns haven't been released yet. They will be available in February with the new colours of Liberty. We don't know the names yet but I will post when we get them.
