While cleaning out the Extra Room to get ready for a guest, I discovered the urgent need for a lamp. We have almost no lighting fixtures in this house. Floor lamps keep moving around and disappearing. An eleventh hour trip to Ikea yielded illumination and a set of matching boxes to store yarn in. Why the sudden urge to do this? No idea. I've been storing yarn in an unattractive collection of old tote bags and large zip locks for years. Ever since moths got into the attractive open baskets I used to use......shudder....can we not talk about the moth incident?
What to knit enroute. I've just cast on the two Ribby Cardi sleeves. I'll put them aside and work on that Torgeir until I leave, so I can do the Cardi sleeves in the car. I've been simmering the idea of a spring Clapotis . Its irresistible, its French and I'm heading to Quebec, I should start it there. D'accords?
Any yarn store recommendations in Montral? I found this one's description intriguing, Magasin de Fibre, they sell yarn by the pound and custom ply it for you. Has anyone been there?
Here are my Clapotis yarn wishes:
Cost $30. or less total Be sort of smooth with a little sheen- maybe a yarn with cotton & silk blended in it. Maybe even no (gasp) wool. Match this color palette of a hike we took to spy on wintering seals yesterday afternoon.
