A trip to the western part of my state requires a knitter to visit Webs. The gravitational pull is unavoidable. When a knitter knows that they will enter the county where Webs is located the car they’re in just goes there. Yarn screams to be pet and the skeins that stick to the knitter have to go home with them. Well, maybe that’s just me.
I did really well constantly reminding myself that I have a new project waiting to be cast on and multiple bins of stash. Honestly a lifetime supply of stash. I pet lots of skeins, admired the beautiful colors and lovely sample projects. Somehow I managed to unstick the new shades of Koigu that kept trying to come home with me. Go look if you dare.
I had done some research before I left home. I had formulated a plan: one skein of lace weight for an epic project that I’ve been thinking about. I had even picked out the skein from their web site so I wouldn’t be tempted by something else. Above is the skein of Hikoo Merino Lace light in a light gray.
The plan is to knit Evenstar by Susan Pandorf. It’s been on my radar for like forever. It’s going to be one of those long term back burner sort of projects. Well, that’s the plan.
