Sale Day

Today all the sale yarn at TYL was 50% off. I didn't buy any! Not because I am strong or "good" but because I would have bought some already if I had wanted it. Who has the patience to wait for yarn sales? Not me.
It was a beautiful day, the sale yarn was out front and lots of people stopped to look. The Knitting Sister Jane brought her posse and they livened up the day considerably. I forgot to take a picture of Amber. She came to knit with us while her bf got ready to play salsa at the 17th Street Farmers' Market this evening. Too bad she lives in Northern Virginia because she fit right in at the big table.

I finally met the mysterious Mary who has been commenting here. This is Mary with her Rowan Tapestry yarn.

Roz is nearly finished with her reds blanket. This is Roz with the first half. She spent some time at the big table working on the border.

I finished my Natalya gauntlets. Stewart took this picture for me so I could show both of them at once. It only took a bit more than one ball of Tapestry. If you made them a couple of repeats shorter, you could easily make a pair from one ball. I knit mine on #7s even though the pattern calls for #8s because I tend to knit fairly loosely. I am really pleased with how they turned out.

Cate, I'm so glad you had your gauntlets at the store yesterday. They are beautiful. The three balls of Tapestry I bought will make three Xmas presents!Jane & I & the rest of our wild bunch had a great day. Good to see you.

Oh, I can't believe I missed meeting Amber! And I have to chuckle at being described "mysterious". Too funny! It was great to meet you, Cate!

Cate, it was wonderful to meet you! I hope to come back down soon. The Yarn Lounge is such a great place and I felt right at home. Your gauntlets are gorgous. I may have to find some of that yarn...
