Last week I was a bad girl. With very little money in my bank account I headed to Knit Happens to pick up some essentials. I needed needles for two projects that were already underway and yarn for a project for a swap. I told myself I would leave with nothing else. But of course once I’d picked out what I needed I had to see what else was around. And I left with this…
Yarn: Fleece Artist, Merino Sock 2/6
Color: marked as Mermaid, but looks more like it might be Aurora
Dye Lot: —
Amount: one skein at 382yds
Purchased at: Knit Happens, Alexandria, VA
stashed on ravelry here
I really shouldn’t have but as soon as I saw it I was helpless to resist. There is so much variation skein to skein in Fleece Artist colorways that I’ve always felt if you find a skein you adore you just have to snatch it up. And to me, this was the prettiest skein of Merino Sock 2/6 I’d ever seen. It had to be mine. In the end I sorted out the money issues. It just meant being super disciplined for awhile, which I managed to do. And now I can enjoy this gorgeous yarn.
