I also went yarn molesting today. As I scrapped the evil Tivoli Serene Sweater for my friend, I needed a new project for her for Christmas. I've settled on the Premiere Pullover from IK Summer 2005 for her. It recommends Classic Elite Premiere, which I can't get here but I looked at the gauge and I figured any DK yarn would work just as well. So, I trooped over the the yarn store nearest me which is about a 45 m inutes drive. I hate this store as the owner is so unhelpful, but beggars can't be choosers!
Anyway, this is what I got:
It's Robin DK. Only acrylic, but my friend has a baby and a toddler, so I figure she'll need a good workhorse sweater that can take a lot of washing.
A ball of Rowan Bamboo tape. I got it for €1.95, a total steal. I have no plans for it, other than to try out knitting with bamboo.
