I finished Hint #2 early last week:
I’ve started on hint #3 as of yesterday.
Meanwhile, last week I also went to WEBS, which was awesome and magnificent, and I bought… well, I didn’t buy too much– just enough to feel like I’d indulged myself. I should have probably picked up yarn-on-cone, but… anyway. Here is some of the lovely pink laceweight I bought.
Next door to WEBS is the WEBS bead shop, where I bought some little coppery green-with-pink-tones beads to go with the yarn:
This eventual shawl is the counterpoint to the green Secret of the Stole (above), which is green yarn and pink beads. See? It’s like some kind of creative balance or something.0
On top of some cashmere/silk from WEBS and the beautiful slate blue yarn my friends gave me in Portland, I have certainly topped-off my yarn stash for the near future.
And yes, WEBS did break my shopping moratorium. I chalk it up to… you know what? I’m not going to make an excuse for this, nor am I feeling apologetic. It was a breach of the moratorium, but I don’t care. The laceweight was gorgeous and affordable. It was gorgeous yarn. The cashmere was on sale for $4/ball. I couldn’t not buy it!
