Enabler? Moi?

Yesterday I cast on Grumperina's Odessa Hat. I have been reading her blog archives lately, and was overcome by grumpy fever. Next thing you know, I pulled a skein of Rowan CashSoft out of the stash and cast on. I am omitting the beads, but using the same yarn and needles called for in the pattern. The Rowan CashSoft DK is so squishy squashy, I love it.

Now, lets just get on thing straight here. Kristina is the enabler. She takes me yarn shopping at a shop with a 30-50% off sale, and forces me to pet every kind of Frog Tree Yarn. Like she said, when we visited Suzoo's we found out the shop was going out of business, we felt we had to help out the shop owner in the liquidation process! Here are my new acquisitions:

2 skeins Scackel's Adagio from the Primera Collection. 70% baby llama, 30% silk

Lamb's Pride Worsted in Persian Peacock, 85% wool, 15% mohair

Lamb's Pride Worsted in Cafe Au Lait, 85% wool, 15% mohair

Claudia Hand Painted Yarn sport weight in Butter Pecan
