spent a wonderful weekend in philly with k. finished my prospy park hat on saturday just in time to wear it to the Fruit Bats/Son Volt concert, which was unbelievably awesome. the hat is wearing well and oh so soft. i didn't have a chance to take pictures, i will soon. the other knitting hi-lite: finally got to check out loop in philly - i had been wanting to check it out for some time. ever since i read the article in the philly paper about the two local yarn suppliers that were run and owned by MEN. loop and the knit with (in chestnut hill) - both of which have my hearty stamp of approval. bought a fat hank of malabrigo, it has quickly asserted itself as my temporary yarn of choice. can you tell? this hank is a deep, subtly variegated red. the color title... get this ... "sealing wax." how great?! can definitely get 2, if not 3 red hats for holiday gifts pumped out in no time from my new acquisition. OH. i also scored a great sweater from daffys for 19 dollars, its a warm brown t w e e d wool that i am planning on tearing out and recycling. a LARGE sweater with wonderful wool for less than 20 dollars. i can make a smaller size sweater for myself that will fit and still have some left over to make something small. oh how i love yarn recycling.....
