That right there is 9 skeins of a gorgeous grey mystery yarn! We had a staff party in the warehouse after work on Friday and it was tons of fun. Leslie Ann, one of the retail store managers, came up with a scavenger hunt game for us–so picture 30 adults running around a yarn store like little kids! Kids drinking beer. There was also a raffle, where I acquired the above mystery yarn. Anyone have an idea what it could be? It’s 6-ply, looks bulky to me and I think it has some alpaca or other fiber content in addition to merino since it’s a little hairy, but super soft.
The label on the bag is the most helpful clue, assuming someone who works in a yarn store that carries this yarn sees my post! I’m 99.9% sure it’s not anything that Webs already carries so that knocks out a bunch of contenders.
I also bought some gorgeous yarn this week: the new Valley Yarns BFL Fingering Hand Dyed.
Gail has done it again! That woman has magic in her dyepot, I swear. I have an idea in mind for that pair but nothing concrete yet–still in the swatching stage, and I’m trying to buckle down and focus on my KAL pullover. Of course, now the design ideas are flowing thick and fast! I even woke up in the middle of the night and thought of a few more touches to add to a concept I had a few months ago. I wrote myself a quick memo on my phone in case I forgot my additions when I woke up this morning!
