Ok, I may have gone a little overboard...
When we got home from our weekend away, the Knit Picks order that I had placed last week was waiting for me. So I got to add a few more things to my vacation haul!
First, a ball winder to go with my new swift. I will feel very fancy while knitting from my cakes, rather than having balls rolling all over the place!
Last, I have two skeins of the Capretta fingering weight wool / cashmere blend and 2 of the Gloss DK. I wanted to check both out for future reference. I have an idea for a pattern I may pitch to Knit Picks Independent Designer Program and I wanted to feel out a couple of their yarns before I told them what I wanted to make this new pattern out of. This Capretta is really soft and if it is at all durable (as in, doesn't pill like crazy) I think it will be at the top of my "I Love To Knit With This Yarn" list. That list is getting longer and longer!
