more yarn!

i'm nursing a sick kiddo today. poor little dude seems to have the beginnings of a yucky cold... sore throat and everything..
and since we're supposed to have a cloudy and wet day today... it's a good day to spend some time with sticks & string, movies, and heaps of yarn :)

... speaking of which... these few skeins are the rest of my haul from seattle. :)

going to TOLT was definitely a huge highlight of the trip for me. this shop is incredible, and if you ever have the chance to go... do it. i want to live there.
while i was there, i wanted to buy something very unique... something i couldn't obtain anywhere else, and i found it. YOTH (aka yarn on the house is exclusive to TOLT yarn and wool. This yarn is so very springy and squishy and just plain amazing! when i saw the cowl sample knitted with it, i just had to have it. i snagged 3x skeins of big sister. such a yummy dk... and will knit up in no time!

... i knew i couldn't leave without a skein of hazel knits. this was kind of funny, as i clearly snuck this one in, hoping no one would notice that i was buying more yarn, after i had cut myself off... haha melissa totally caught me hilarious :)

this skein (and i have to apologize for the over exposure... i promise to have better pictures soon)... was a splurge for me. samples are a dangerous thing. i tried on a new cowl design, which surprisingly uses only one skein of this amazingly luxurious yarn, i knew i wanted it.
want to know what i'll be knitting? it's called hallgrimskirkja and it's designed by libby blossom.

it really is light as a cloud, and extremely soft.. such a gorgeous knit! just stunning!

one of my favourite booths was definitely neighborhood fiber co. while i was in virginia last summer, i met up with sandra, the amazing mastermind behind duck duck wool.... and she introduced me to neighborhood yarns. i'm so glad she did! i had bought a skein there, but was sad it was the only one in the stash.. so of course, when this baby kept staring at me, i just had to take it home. it's a massive skein of worsted weight. 400 yards per skein!

i had grabbed a vibrant blue one as well... but i'll be showing that one to you on a different post. :)

so there you have it. i think we're all caught up on my seattle goods... basically.... and now clearly, i need to knit heaps... as my stash has grown considerably over the past year or so? haha. maybe one day i will post a pic of the stash... maybe...

what are you up to today? any lovely knitting by your side? i'll be clicking away on work knitting, and starting a few custom orders.... soon these pretties will be on my needles though... soon!! xo
