The story of my life
I scored. Brigid went to New Mexico and went to LaLana Wool. Saturday as I innocently was working in the shop I got a phone call from Brigid in New Mexico. "Hey, guess where *I* am standing". Uh huh. She told me that she bought me a gift and did I want anything else from there. Did *I* want ANYTHING from LaLana? You bet your ass I did. I had her buy me the stuff they used in "Scarf Style" to make the big entrelac (and I don't love entrelac) shawl. I couldn't afford the whole thing, but I bought enough for a mini one. It is beautiful. The color doesn't show in the picture. My surprise was even better. She got me the locks from the sheep to weave into parts of a scarf or even a sweater. I am sick. Now I am buying yarn from far off places by phone unseen.
The bad news...(for me that is)
I got to the last 20 rows of Hebrides and ran out of the purple. I was given 2 skeins of green too much and not enough purple. Now I have to wait to finish it. So I started "Marilyn" which is made out of Blackwater Abbey. I can live with that.
