Last night I rolled the last 2 skeins of the yarn for the lizard ridge afghan into 4 balls.
This will be "plane knitting" for my next trip.
Meanwhile, these are the Philadelphia squares. I am considering "Isaiah" and "Julia" as their names in honor of the Magic Gardens and the Boeuf Bourguignon. No decisions are final yet.
And, while we are on the topic of yarn, I went to Loop when I was in Philadelphia. I ventured out with the specific purpose of looking at and touching some Brooklyn Tweed yarn. We don't have it available at any of the local yarn stores in our area.
This was a delightful yarn store. Clean white shelving and walls; yarn well organized and artistically arranged. There were helpful, friendly, people working here. They helped me figure out how much yarn I might need for the pattern I had in mind for the yarn I was just going to look at.
When they said they would be happy to ship it, I didn't know they were going to wrap it like a present and include a thank you note and have it to me so fast. All that was a bonus.
Did I mention the darling project bags? You know I had to get one.
I would have been able to resist the purchase if the people in the store hadn't been so nice. But they were, so I did, and now here I am, with 5 skeins of lovely Brooklyn Tweed loft. And I could not be happier.
