The stash has been enhanced

The delight of a trip out of town is the opportunity to shop in a new place. When I go to Boise I like to stop at Drop a Stitch, a really nice yarn shop. This time I got this.


2 skeins of Koigu to make those leaf lace socks that were in Interweave Knits.


Then I got some Lorna's Laces Shepherds sock in the color Jeans. I think these will be fun to knit. I guess this is my blue period.


I bought a ball of kid silk haze in a subtle champagne color for a lace scarf.
I am planning on making the Mountain Stream Scarf with it. Its Orenburg lace which I have never done before but it sure is a lovely pattern. I also got something for my spin buddy but I figured I had better not list it here just in case. I don't think she reads my blog but one never knows.


We went to REI next and I found this great folding stool. I will use it to take for on location artwork and when we go wolf watching and more. It was kinda pricey but it was what I liked and very comfortable which is very important. It was 30.00 but I got 20% off the price. Dave bought a little stool last year for $5.00 at sportmans warehouse and it was nowhere near as nice or comfortable to me. I guess it was made for a mans physique.

I am sure you are all wondering about the Tartan Day festivities. Well I will post about that later. My photos need to be tweaked and I hate to admit it but I need my teenage daughters help with that. Posted by Picasa

I hope you like the Mountain Stream pattern. Let me know if you have any questions.

Are you the Kate who dyes yarn and sells it through Kristine at Three Wishes???? I spun up all your rovings and now Kristine doesn't have any more. Will you be dyeing any more??? Pretty please. ;)
