I treated myself to some new yarn today from my local yarn store. The three skeins at the back are James C Brett "Marble", the same yarn that I used to knit my seamless raglan sweater a few months ago but in a different colourway. I love this stuff and I'd like to knit something in every colour they stock!
I bought five balls of Mission Falls 1824 Cotton, just because I love the colours and I want to try it out. I took a look at the Mission Falls pattern books but didn't buy any - I was just looking for inspiration.
I don't know what I'll be knitting with either of these yarns - maybe a shawl for my mum or myself with the Marble, maybe a cabled scarf with the cotton.
Driving home in rush-hour traffic didn't bother me today - all I had to do while stopped was reach over and fondle my yarn and all my cares went out the window!!!
