All of you New Jersey folks probably knew Beth over at Hand Knits in Englewood. Well she's gone to Vermont and I acquired (fancy way of saying hoard) lotso yarn during her fabulous 70% off sale. This group of lovely yarns wants to be an afghan and my friend Shirley did the most beautiful one in all cream colors of every texture imaginable - THEN GAVE IT AWAY TO HER SISTER! Shirley is back from visiting her family in Hong Kong and I am planing a special play date to see all the yarn goodies that I just know she brought back.
I've decided to make my blankie in golds and browns and I have some mohair, some chenille, some wool, some silk, some rayon and some alpaca to enjoy as I garter stitch away.
