Out And About

Yesterday I was fortunate to meet a friend at Starbucks for hot chocolate. We had made arrangements in the fall to swap some yarn. She was going to AZ in December and would pick me up something fun there. I told her I would order her some yarn when I ordered my Loopy Academy purchase. While we chatted, drank our hot chocolate and gave the guy behind me (who obviously had ants in his pants) the side eye we showed off our projects and then we swapped and gushed over our new yarn. The photo shows the gorgeous new yarn I received: a skein of Less Traveled yarn and a skein of Gherkins Bucket, both I have never tried before. I can’t wait to cast on-but I will finish what I’ve got going first. Thank you!

    Swapping yarn is a great idea, maybe I can do that with my sis! Does it take you long to decide on a project when you receive yarn you didn’t pick out? There’s alway socks, but then there’s the pattern selection. Just curious!
