I am back with the GOODS!

I had such a GREAT TIME!!!!! Jen and I hit the yarn shops in a big way.  We went to Filati in Rocklin CA, A Room Full of Yarn in Greenville CA, The wool Room in Quincy CA, and last but not at all least JIMMY BEANS WOOL in Truckee CA.  I got to see CA again and the mountains were beautiful. It snowed the last night I visited and there was a lot of snow to be seen in Truckee.  Well, I built the stash pretty good:)  Just wish I had some more money for the other stuff I saw in the sale bins too!!!!  There is some Koigu in this pick that Jen's mom purchased for me, that is going to make the Clapotis!  With out further ado;

My yummy Koigu compliments of Alice, Jen's mom!  This is what you get when you bring crawfish to them:) I think I made out like a bandit!!! Thanks Alice. This will become the Clapotis of my drema

I got 5 balls of this stuff to make  the ChevronRib Tank from Interweave Knits. It calls for Blue Sky organic cotton, but that is a liitle pricey for my taste:)



I finally casted on my cotton-ease for my sisters Tempting, shouldn't be long now!



I will post my vacation pics soon! 



 I need to get back in the swing of things, Chris replaced me all to well the past week!

Your yarn is gorgeous! I can't wait to see how the Koigu knits up.

Don't worry, no one can replace the momma!

Wow, you got such lush stuff! Jenn wrote about your visit, and I had to come see.. I live near Downieville and she and I have gotten to write back and forth a bit. Yes, it is awesome here, but the rain can stop any time now!
