As you may have seen in various places, we had a second gathering last Saturday of knitbloggers from around Southeast New England. Kristen, Debby, Sarah, Carol, Cindy, Kimberly, Greeley, Heather and I descended upon Sakonnet Purls to ogle (and buy!) yarn and knit for a couple of hours. I picked up some Plymouth Encore, 3 balls of Regia sock yarn (hopefully this will be enough for Cookie A’s German Stocking pattern!), and some cotton yarn for a hat. I also acquired a second set of Addi Lace circulars and promptly transferred a shawl over. I miss the extra grab the Addi Naturas had on the lace weight alpaca yarn, but I definitely prefer the joins and pointiness of the Addi Lace needles.
Kimberly gave me a very nice going-away present--two skeins of sock yarn from Farmhouse Yarns and a bottle of coffee syrup. Thanks, Kimberly!
