I’d gone to CT S&W with a very specific shopping list and then a small amount of splurge money as well. Last year I’d admired the lovely alpaca yarn at Time’s Remembered but didn’t buy any. I kept thinking how sorry I was that I hadn’t bought any so I picked up a skein at NH S&W the following month. Over the course of the year I’ve been wondering what to make with it and I just keep thinking it really wants to be a sweater. With that in mind I planned to pick up a few more skeins this year in CT. In addition I splurged on some lovely cashmere and silk tussah roving as well as a cute little (very inexpensive) diz.
