While waiting for the Philosopher the other evening before a show at the House Theater, I moseyed down the block and into Nina. The proprieter always has such lovely things and it was a nice way to while away the time. She was helping a new knitter find some super bulky yarn to create a bulky fast scarf and I was trying to remember what obligation knitting I had for this year.
Then, of course, I got waylaid by the sale bin.
Remember the Rorschach Socks? I found more of that yarn.
Isn't the raspberry lovely?
Or, you know, if lime is more your style. Yes, they're really that bright. And by bright I mean neon. I assume they'll just be socks at some point in the next year, I don't have any particular plans as yet but I'm not sure I know anyone who wants that level of bright nearer to their faces that over the toes.
I do really like the base though, which is Zitron Wolkenspiel. I should probably check to see if they have anything in slightly less bright shades.
I also picked up a skein of Berroco Vintage. It's knit-a-dog-sweater-season and fluffy pup needs a new shrug, I'm told.
The yarn is a little more purple than this but again, my usual trouble with the camera eye and ultraviolet.
This is the only yarn that gets to stay out, the Zitron skeins are both headed to the stash to marinate. Perhaps I'll dig them out again in March when it's grey...
