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.
