Why, I think it's BOOTY!

This weekend we went up to Connecticut for Georgia's cousin's birthday (the cousin is three weeks older than Georgia, so they're a nice pair).

After the party we drove up to Webs (WEBS! BOO YAH!) where, well, I bought some yarn.

Here's the booty:

Berroco Lustra 50% Peruvian Wool, 50% Tencel (potentially for Ella's wedding dress). It feels like silk.:

Schoppel Wolle Crazy Zauberball. The German fiber content reads "75% Schurwolle, 25% Polyamid Crazy Outfit" which I think accurately describes it. This is destined to be a scarf for Ella's fiance, Ryan, for Christmas.

More Schoppel Wolle Crazy Zauberball, which is destined to be a cowl for Ella (who purchased both of the Schoppel Wolle balls):

Classic Elite Fresco, 60% Wool/30% Baby Alpaca/10% Angora, which is destined to be Hannah Fettig's Lightweight Pullover (for me):

And some Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride, 85% wool, 15% mohair, that will become an Offset Raglan by Veronik Avery (also for me, though I bought extra for swatching for a sweater for Bruce):

After Webs we drove up to the Mohawk Trail in Mass. and stayed at a lovely farm for the night. The farm had ducks, geese, horses, donkeys and goats. It's a boarding farm for horses and the owner of the house opens up about 1/3 of it to guests. We chose it because she accepts animals and because Beezer was still on the bottle we had to take him with us.

Here's the Beeze (he was "helping" me take pictures of the yarn):

Tomorrow I'll post about our journey through Mass MoCA and put up some pix of pretty (for reals!) modern art.


  1. Wow girl, can see you have been enjoying yourself - sooo much lovely yarn! Beautiful colors on all of it. I don't know the yarns exept for Zauerball, that one I have touched-not knitted from - but they all looks so pretty! And what great projects you are gonna knit. Little Beeze on his first long trip, bet he adored everyone he met :-) Hehe, there is for actual pieces of pretty modern art, rear but they can be found :-)

  2. that first shot of the kitty is crazy good. and, i am jealous because i love the look of schoppel wolle crazy zauberball but have never knit with it before.

  3. Nice booty! And the little guy is just adorable!

  4. with booty like that--you'll soon been knitting up a storm!

  5. Always impressed with your booty, V!

  6. Wow Gorgeous yarn! Beeze is precious! I am allergic as heck to cats, but there is not much cuter than a little kitten!
