Manos del Uruguay har I jo allerede hilst på. Jeg tænker, at det skal blive til en hexagon-bluse mere. Mon ikke der skal sådan en rimeligt enkelt model til garn med så meget spræl i farverne?
I Brooklyn General Store nøjedes jeg først pænt med et bundt Malabrigo strømpegarn. Meget beskedent! Dorina syntes dog, jeg skulle købe noget lokalt, og det gjorde jeg så. Grundigt! Garnet er Merino fra Morehouse Farm, og utroligt blødt. Det er købt med den viste Annette Danielsen opskrift i tankerne. Tykkelsen er helt forkert, men ideen med striber og bobler kan man da sagtens strikke ud fra, ikke? Tænker, den skal igang snart.
Of course you can see, what I bought! You already met the lovely Manos del Uruguay. I want to make another hexagon-sweater in that yarn. I think all the colors need a fairly straight-forward pattern.
In the Brooklyn General Store I only found a nice skein of Malabrigo sock yarn. Very well done, considering my plans of not buying too much! Dorina suggested I bought some locally-made yarn too. Which I did, then. Big time! The yarn is 3 strand Merino from the Morehouse Farm, and incredibly soft. I bought it, thinking of the cardigan shown on the picture, designed by Annette Danielsen. The thickness of the wool is completely wrong, but I like the idea of stripes and circles, and I think it would look nice in bulkier yarn, too. Will be started very soon.
det her er man bare nødt til at have på lager. I lyserød. Det ser fantastisk ud, når det er strikket! Til højre er der endnu et bundt strømpegarn, købt i Trumpet Hill, med glimmer. Uuuuhhhhh! Til mine fødder, tror jeg.
Before I went, I ordered some pink sock yarn. Exactly this yarn is something you should always have in your stash. In pink. It looks amazing when it is knitted up! On the right is a little more sock yarn, bought at Trumpet Hill, with a little glitter. Sooooo nice! For my very own feet, I think.
Then there are the various sock yarns. From the left, it is 2 skeins of Madelinetosh sock. I guess they should be for me as well, since they need gentle wash! In the middle it is 2 skeins of hand-dyed yarn from "recycled granny", bought at La Casita Yarn. I just couldn't decide whether to buy the pink/orange or the green/blue, so both of them came home with me! Next is the single skein of Malabrigo, that felt so lonely in the basket, and finally a green skein of yarn bought at "Seaport Yarn" (a very untidy shop, but I just had to pop by).
