I ordered a number of clearance skeins from Elann (they still have some great colors for about $4 per skein of 50gram from their Peruvian Sierra Aran collection - these are great for making toques, mittens, scarves and even sweaters it's a super comfy blend of wool and alpaca ♥). Shipping was extremely fast. I placed the order on Tuesday night, today is Thursday of the same week and it's already here - a nice big box plopped in front of my door! I also picked up a few skeins of Cascade Yarn (one of my favorites - I love their Eco+ line, you get a lot of yarn, it's 100% peruvian wool and it's nice and chunky) and Addi Turbo needles (on the more expensive side, but you have a lifetime warranty and once you use these you'll never go back to any other needles) from Three Bags Full. Putting me into a yarn shop or letting me browse yarn online is extremely dangerous (I can't tell you exactly how much I spent or my boyfriend might tear me apart - or even worse take my needles away!)
I've been working on a toque from Purl Bee. It's called the Simple Pleasures Hat. I'm close to halfway done. I was a bit intimidated at first (I've just been making a ton of scarves because it's so easy) - I'm surprised at how easy it is to get started on the little toque.
Hope all you lovelies are having a good few last days of the week!
