Hello All! I just had a lovely visit from my sister-in-law Sue and we went to Portland's greatest Weaving and Fiber Gallery where Melodi helped me figure out my warping board and where I purchased some nice chenille yarn for a scarf that I want to weave.When we parked the car, I noticed a NEW, at least to me, yarn shop called Knitwit Yarn Shop and Coffee Bar. I DIDN'T have a piece of gloriously decadent chocolate cake while I shopped. Okay, okay! I did! But at least Sue and I shared it. Anyway, back to the shop and the yarn. I loved all that I saw there and I found some Noro Kureyon yarn that I immediately bought to make a multi-directional scarf. Here's a picture of the yarn and my progress.
It's a fast knit, and FUN!! I'm sure there are more people out there that like to do this as well, but I love to start projects - I usually finish them but I'm always looking out for a new yarn and a new pattern. I just got two books from the library - one on scarves and the other on bags. I can't wait to open them up and really get into the books.
Also I get the irresistable urge to giggle foolishly when I purchase new yarn that I love and it takes all of my control not to scream out "Mine, MINE, MINE!" after the clerk hands me my purchase. Anybody else feel like that??
