New Orleans Part 3

Hey. More New Orleans! I promise this will be it for showing yarn for a while--more to follow later.

Ok. So, the second day I headed to the Garden District Needlework Shop. This was such a great store! It is large and full of all kinds of lovely yarns. I saw Schaeffer yarns for the first time (wow!), Cherry Hill, Koigu, Colinette, Lorna's Laces, Rowan and so much more. Plus, the owner and staff are so friendly and helpful. I plopped myself down at their table, they brought out their lunches and margaritas and we had a lovely chat about Sweden, continental vs. mixed knitting, and more.

Given my lengthy stay at the store, let's just say that I ended up having a few items to bring home with me.

Ok. Here's the run down. I decided that I wanted to make a friend the Booga Bag for Christmas, so I bought some pretty pink Noro Kureyon:

I thought maybe some pretty sock yarn and of course some needles:

And look! The Colinette Mercury that I need to edge my Granada jacket:

Then, I made it to the Rowan. I looked through the new Ribbon Twist book:

and this caught my attention:

Yes, that is a stupid picture, but I love the little capelet. I recently gave up all hope for my poofy capelet, since the bind off just wouldn't end up loose enough. This has potential, though. So, I picked up this pretty grey yarn:

Ok. Enough damage. I thought that should be it. I forgot about this:

This is to make Lisette from the new Rowan book. I feel queasy....

I was thinking that all of my stash should fit in one cupboard:

But with my latest, it doesn't fit! Horrors! I eyeballed additional spots that my husband, Mr. Clutter-Free, wouldn't look. Hmmm.

Hee. Look!

No more. No more. Really! I have to go knit...
