Just this one last thing and I'll be done with 2007. Here's my last yarn purchase of the year: Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn, Color S184. I got it at Skein when I stopped by there last Sunday to wish Ann Mary and KC a Happy New Year. I like the color a lot. Not so sure about the texture. It's very scratchy although it does have 30% nylon. I'm going to start with some US2 dpns and see how it looks. I've seen one blogger who is making a shawl from this yarn.
I think I might be out of the yarn buying mode for a while. After I left Skein last Sunday I went with my friend L (of L&H fame) to a couple of other yarn shops, Unwind in Burbank and to Stitch Cafe in Valley Village. I didn't buy anything at either shop. And on Monday, even though it was the last day of our 35% off sale, I didn't buy anything at A Stitch in Time. I'm not sure if I'm feeling like this because I spent a considerable amount of money during the holidays and am feeling nervous about the upcoming bills or if I'm just tired of the same old thing and need to see something new. I am going to TNNA at the end of next week. Maybe that will help me decide.
