Last weekend the boy & I took a little getaway to New York. We had a great time and he humored me with a little trip to School Products. He snapped this while I was browsing around.
There’s not a lot about school products that hasn’t already been written. It’s cropped up in a number of blogs lately. So I’ll limit myself to a few brief thoughts. There was a lot of really lovely yarn, but the bargains weren’t quite as good as I expected. That said, I left with a few things I’m very happy with.
Dye Lot: —
Amount: 7 ounces at 500 yds

For my School Products exclusive purchase I picked the Yak Merino. After feeling the sample knit up in this yarn I was really impressed. Once it’s washed the strands blend together and it softens a great deal. And this color is incredibly unique. It’s still a neutral, but it’s got so much depth to it.
Color: 2200 & 1500
Dye Lot: 64 & 109
Amount: 3 Skein at 175 yds each
I also picked up this KPM to make a really bright pair of stranded mitten. Maybe it’s the coming Spring, but I’ve been drawn to crazy color combinations.
