At WEBS, I wandered slowly through the aisles, touching every single yarn with one finger. Then I bought enough yarn for Revolution, in a warm brown color with sage green for the accent color.

A few days later, I went to Yarn Forward in Ottawa, and picked up a ball of Lang Jawoll sock yarn. I’ve never knit with it before, and the colors looked fantastic – dark and bright greens, and brown. If I’m remembering correctly, it is self-striping. The included bit of reinforcing yarn for the heel and toe intrigued me, and ultimately I couldn’t resist.

I also made a note that Lang Jawoll Superwash would be perfect for Clessidra. It’s the same gauge as Regia Silk, but a lot less expensive.

And that is the end of my stash enhancement for quite some time. This stuff had all been budgeted into my vacation, so I don’t feel bad about buying it. I still have to purchase a lazy kate with my birthday money (I’ve been waiting until we have the house a little more set up), but after that, I’m on a strict yarn diet. Money has to go to the house and it’s not like I have a shortage of yarn! I hereby resolve that I will not buy any more yarn or fiber until the MD Sheep and Wool Festival in May.

Even the pretty stuff on Etsy that I was supposed to buy with the rest of my birthday money.

    I started pondering Clessidra for the Noro sock yarn. I think the gradient would work well for the sock, but after thinking more, I figured the Noro isn’t stretchy enough for the cable work.

    Then I remembered my Lorna’s sock yarn, and my Socks That Rock.

    Both of which would look good for Clessidra. :)
