Caught in a trap

A colour trap, that is.

We’re back home now, but we spent a fair bit of time this March break in Sudbury. Driving around looking for a restaurant at one point I spotted Sweet Yarns and I had to go back for a look later on when they were open.

Here’s what I saw:

I happened in on a Tuesday afternoon with a knitting group in full swing. There was a great selection of yarn like Louet, Handmaiden, Malabrigo, Fleece Artist, Rowan, Dye-Version, Classic Elite, Berroco, and some fiber from Fleece Artist & Louet. I’m sure I missed some things, but it was a delightful place and I fell victim to the following items:

Mmm, Fleece Artist BFL fiber in that yummy blue colourway that I love.

Liberty Wool from Classic Elite Yarns, which I hadn’t had a chance to put my paws on yet. This is colour 7893 (Rainforest).

And I didn’t realize until I put all this together into my knitting bag just how much of a colour theme I’m locked into at the moment:

In other knitting news, the green jellyfish (square Clover Shawl) is off the needles, but waiting for blocking. I can’t wait to see how this turns out. I’m still a wee bit nervous about blocking a project made with my own handspun yarn. I know that the yarn is somewhat thick and thin and flawed in places. What if it breaks?
