I'm sorry... What?!
New yarn that I didn't know about!?!
Clearly, I'm falling down on the job... :)
I popped into my favorite Joann's (on Barranca) to get a pair of size 6 circulars when I walked by this fabulous display!!!
I had no ideal Stitch 'n Bitch was putting out yarn!!!
I can't even begin to tell you how beautifully vibrant these yarn colors are!
These are my colors! Bright Fuchsia pinks and deep eggplanty purples.
They're gorgeous! Even the white is a beautiful creamy white!
There are three kinds of yarn.
"Alpaca Love" which is 80% Wool, 20% Alpaca. "Rich hues" (per website) is right! They sure are. They're gorgeous!
"Bamboo Ewe" is 55% viscose from Bamboo and 45% wool. Fun, fun colors! I love that Geranium color and "Lipstick"! I'd buy that yarn just for the color name. ;-)
"Full o' Sheep" is 100% Peruvian Wool single ply. Gorgeous colors. And it's also good for felting! YAY!
At $4.99, these yarns are incredibly reasonable!
Some Lion yarns are up to like $9.00 bucks!
They had two 'Free Projects' attached to the display so I grabbed this one ("Weekend in Stockholm" - also on their website):
I so want to make this!!! (Along with everything else I'm trying to work on...)
I didn't buy any of this yarn yesterday... I'm being good right now. :-/
But I definitely will go back and get some. I'd really like to try and make that throw.
And here's a cute lil video with Debbie Stoller talking about her new yarn!!!
