I promised to post pictures of the yarn I bought last week on my "yarn therapy" session. Here it is...
It's Cascade, Ultra Pima. I love cotton! It's soft and the sheen made it even harder to resist. It adds a richness to it. It doesn't have a color name...just 3719. It's a soft, silvery, beige. I think it will go with a lot of things. It will probably become some kind of lacy wrap or shawl. I bought two skeins.
I always have a hard time resisting Sugar 'n Cream. The yarn shop, Labors of Love, has some colors I don't see in the big box stores....like this yummy chocolate brown. They also have copies of free patterns around the store, sitting next to examples. I picked up a pattern for a cute, knitted dishcloth. That's what this will become.
Back to the sewing machine! We just finished sewing all the squares together for my daughter's quilt. Next, we'll need to decide on a border and sew it on. Then, create a back panel. After that, we'll be ready to tie it all together!
