Yarn Crawl 2012

So despite my rather rigorous schedule with my last quarter of school, I was still determined to participate in the first L.A. County Yarn Crawl. Of course, I forgot to turn in my passport, but I did only make it into three stores (on the first day too, sadly). I had a deadline on the following Monday, leaving me with little time to venture throughout the city. But that didn’t mean that I didn’t score some great yarn (and exciting potential projects!).

From left to right: Plymouth Happy Feet DK, Frog Tree Sock Yarn, Mountain Colors, and I forgot the last one. But there are sweater quantities of the last one, which is super exciting. I already know that the Frog Tree is going to be come simple ribbed socks, the Happy Feet are already on the needles (ribbed socks as well), and I’m thinking the Mountain Colors is going to be a cowl. But plans can change.

Though I only got a taste of the event, I had such a lovely time. I really wish I could spend more time at LYSes and with knitters; they’re such a happy, cheerful bunch (though that might be a premature label). The morning I spent perusing yarn shops put me in such a great mood after countless days toiling in front of a computer in studio. I always enjoy a good trip to the yarn shop as I always get to learn new tricks and get to know miscellaneous people. I can’t wait to graduate and have more time to devote to knitting (and ultimate frisbee).

…coming soon: a much needed Hawaii entry and a FO entry.
