Every now and then, I get the itch to visit my Little Yarn Store. Even though I don’t need anything at all. I will find myself down in Civilization (because I otherwise live in The Middle of Nowhere) with a few toddler-free moments, and I will sneak in.
I sometimes get this same itch with Target.
Our little secret.
Perhaps you also suffer from these little itches from time to time? Mmmm hmmm.
I won’t tell your husband if you won’t tell min.
The last time I found myself with a LYS itch to scratch, I came upon this little baby.
It was the color that grabbed me–a rich jewel tone even though I happened to be in the market for soft, light neutrals.
For under $8, I figured Why Not and pocketed a single skein (372 yards) of Filatura Di Crosa Golden Line Nirvana yarn, a lace weight merino wool in Color 54. After all, it is called Nirvana, which sounds very promising.
I have no plan. No advanced scheme. I am thinking lace weight shawlette but I do yet have a pattern in mind. I haven’t even browsed Ravelry (soon!). I need some ideas, if you care to share.
Have you knit with Nirvana before? Aptly named? What did you make?
