It pays to know people
Especially people who spin & dye yarn! If you read my previous post you'll remember me lamenting over the fact that I had $$ to spend but couldn't find the "right" purchase.
Well, last night I went to Knit Group (because I refuse to use that S & B phrase) & who should show up but Lacey! She sits down next to me & starts pulling out hank after hank after skein after skein of the most gorgeous handspun. We pass around several of the skeins which are petted, stroked, Ooohed & aahed over. Two have my attention. I made a wise choice & bought one. It's called Frog Stomp & is 156 yards. If you enlarge the pic you possibly can see the sparkles in it. They're called "angelina"!!
Thanks Lacey for enabling me & quenching my need to buy SOMETHING!! I'm loving my yarn & keep taking it out to look at it!
