Two Things

Two things showed up in the Boston Area yesterday:

And the Plucky Knitter Trunk Show at Another Yarn Shop in Winchester.

Besides Plucky Knitter Yarns (and the Plucky Knitter herself!), Thea Coleman (aka BabyCocktails) was also there with samples of her patterns. I'm a HUGE fan of Dark and Stormy, and seeing it in person only makes me love it more. In fact, all of Thea's designs are gorgeous, and I have a few of them in my queue. Plucky yarns are just as gorgeous as you think they are, and I see why the shop sells out so quickly! Sadly, a sweater's worth of yarn was not in my budget yesterday (as it was, I had to break out my "Save for Rhinebeck" envelope, but I did snag one skein of Plucky Primo! Fingering in the color "Medieval".
I knew I would knit a hat or cowl with it, and I thought the gray was a good neutral to go with my various color coats and vests (purple, black, red, not sure about the light blue). I've already picked out this cowl, designed by the Plucky Knitter herself. But I have to wonder, is it wrong to knit Renaissance with Medieval?

I sure hope that Dark and Stormy is in your queue. I can totally relate to the yarn budget...I only wish I was saving for Rhinebeck.

Well...the renaissance period only happened because of medieval times. It isn't only right - it's appropriated ;).

I wish I could be there for both the snow and the trunk show.

Sounds like fun -- how did you like the new yarn store?
