I thought I'd share with you the results of my latest stash-enhancement expedition. Want to see what two bucks and changes got me on Saturday? Sure you do.
First up, something very Piggy:
SweetGeorgia Merino Silk Lace in Orchid; 700 metres (765 yards) of utter gorgeousness for a future lace shawl. You know, because I'm doing so well with the lace.
The second skein I picked up...well, it might surprise you:
That's a skein of Bumble Bee Spud & Chloe Fine. It's even more yellow in person. Not terribly Piggy, I know, but I'm thinking I'll pair it with the skein of Anemone that's been stashed for ages for some kind of striped or patterned socks. I'll need to find a Swede, I think, to give them to...
So, how did I manage to spend less than three dollars on these lovelies? Well, I was the lucky winner of the random draw at the Edgemont Village location of Urban Yarns. The prize: a $50 gift certificate. Lucky Piggy.
Not so much with the lace, though...updates to follow soonish. Probably.
