With trepidation I sent my first child off to her first day of school ever. There were tears on the adult side but, the child was stoic. To ease my pain I had my husband take me to the yarn store. It’s been a long time since I’ve been to a brick and mortar for yarn. It’s a little intimidating to me. The shop and its workers are very lovely so thats not the issue. I think I’ve just gotten way to used to buying craft related items online. I always say I will go back to the lys more often, but I never do. Online shopping is just to easy and with priority mail its quick enough.
So I found a new yarn while browsing at the store. Its Cascade Heritage Sock Yarn. I’ve heard a lot about Cascade 220 on Ravelry, but that yarn is to heavy for me so I didn’t really explore the line. I found their solid sock yarn and I need one in every color now. Plus its only 11.25 at the store. I got two skeins of over 400 yds of sock yarn for less than 25 dollars. One skein of indie dyed yarn costs as much as two of these. I wont be giving up my hand paints anytime soon but damn! Its weird buying sock yarn where the color name is just a number. Its a normal superwash/ nylon blend. It feels soft enough. I might even try some color work socks now that I’ve discovered this yarn. Alright I won’t get ahead of myself. Onto the yarn.
