I don't get Columbus Day off from work. I don't know about celebrating the "discovery" of a country that clearly had been already discovered by the people who lived here. But there is one tradition of Columbus Day weekend that I love. Windsor Button, my LYS, has their annual sale every Columbus Day weekend and that means all yarn is 20% off! I also had a couple of gift certificates hanging out on my fridge waiting for just the right day.
After lots of yarn fonding, I came home with these lovelies. Apparently I am in my blue period.
On the top is Cherry Hill Supersock Merino. Then clockwise is Malabrigo Worsted in Indigo and Malabrigo Silky Merino in Indiecita. The Silky Merino just called to me. I have no idea what I am going to make with it but I just had to have it. Really- I had to have it.
Enjoy your Columbus Day, I hope it involves soft gorgeous yarn.
